Abstract: Halophyte vegetation of Slovenian sedimentary seacoast was studied according to Braun-Blanquet method. 140 collected relevés were analysed by cluster analysis and five main clusters were separated. Relevés from the first, fourth and fifth clusters were further elaborated in this study. The Juncus maritimus-dominated tall rush saltmarshes of the class Juncetea maritimi were classified within two associations: Limonio-Puccinellietum represented hygrophilous stands, exposed to tide, while the association Juncetum maritimi-acuti was represented with more closed stands with higher species richness, thriving on rather drier sites. With in the saltmarsh scrubs of the class Arthrocnemetea fruticosi, 3 associations, following the declining moisture/salinity gradient were recognized: Puccinellio-Arthrocnemetum, Puccinellio-Halimionetum and Limonio-Artemisietum.
