Avinoam Danin © Origanum ramonense, endemic to a small area of the Negev Highlands, confined to smooth-faced limestone

Avinoam Danin © A hard rock outcrop during a light shower (ca. 1 mm/hr). The shiny faces are sites where a continuous water film developed on the rock and run-off started
Avinoam Danin © Rock outcrops and an asphalt road where runoff started
Avinoam Danin © Urginea maritima at a soil pocket in smooth-faced rock outcrop covered with epilithic lichens (P=100 mm )
Avinoam Danin © A cross-section in a limestone covered with an epilithic lichen which protects it from the destructive energy of the rain drops epilithic lichen rock
Avinoam Danin © Water in a depression at a rock-outcrop in the desert. Soil pockets should be regarded as such depressions filled with soil
Avinoam Danin © A soil pocket in the desert. The marked plants are typical Mediterranean surviving due to efficient run-off from the exposed smooth rock (P=80 mm) Umbilicus intermedius Urospermum picroides
Avinoam Danin © Bufonia ramonensis, endemic to one slope at the Negev Highlands, in the same rock outcrop of the two previous photos
Avinoam Danin © Gebel Halal in N Sinai (P= mm), where Juniperus phoenicea trees survived in smooth-faced rocks. They penetrated the desert in a moist period more than 40,000 years ago. A branch of the marked tree displays 865 annual rings
Avinoam Danin © A Juniperus phoenicea branch, 865 years old; seems to be the oldest tree recorded in the Middle East so far
Avinoam Danin © Juniper trees in a wadi draining the large rocky surface attain considerable size, also by being naturally protected from becoming fire wood. The burning wood “explodes” and makes sparks which may endager the Bedouin tent
Avinoam Danin © Juniperus phoenicea branches resemble those of Cupressus, but the small cones look like red fruits
Avinoam Danin © Eastern Crete where Juniperus phoenicea shrubs are accompanied by Sarcopoterium and Coridothymus
Avinoam Danin © Large rock outcrops of Gebel Halal support additional special plants among the Juniper trees Origanum isthmicum discovered here is endemic to an area less than 5x5 km at this mountain chain
Avinoam Danin © Origanum jordanicum, the closest relative of O. isthmicum
Avinoam Danin © Distribution of Origanum sect. Campanulatocalyx 1. O. dayi 2. O. ramonense 3. O. isthmicum 4. O. punonense 5. O. petraeum 6. O. jordanicum
Avinoam Danin © In a study of plant adaptations in desert dunes, several species of the Boraginaceae were discovered, having the rare ability to produce root-borne shoots. The new shoots arrest mobile sand thus leading to the re- covering of the exposed roots in areas of sand deflation Heliotropium digynum Moltkiopsis ciliata
Avinoam Danin © A gentle slope of a sandy area south of Dimona supports several Boraginaceae. It is facing south- west, the main direction of strong winds in winter
Avinoam Danin © A species new to science, described as Anchusa negevensis confined to that slope and was not found anywhere else. It produces root-borne shoots
Avinoam Danin © Following DNA analyses of the family the species was transferred to another genus, and it is now Hormuzakia negevensis
Avinoam Danin © A group of at least 7 individuals of H. negevensis that are possibly connected by their roots
Avinoam Danin © New root-borne shoots of H. negevensis
Avinoam Danin © Flowers and fruits of H. negevensis
Avinoam Danin © Theucrium capitatum a common species of Israel and its neighbouring countries
Avinoam Danin © Hair-types of the taxa related to Teucrium leucocladum, compared to those of T. capitatum T. capitatum subsp. leucocladum var. glandulosum subsp. sinaicum subsp. jordanicum
Avinoam Danin © Distribution of the taxa related to Teucrium leucocladum

Danin (additional one Cyanobacterium, probably Mathea daninii Friedmann, is in press since 1984).
