The main habitats that we find at La Gola are the meadows of Salicornia which make up part of the wetland and the thicket (garrigue) with pines. The combination of these environments favours the
high flora diversity found at La Gola, especially plants with annual cycle.
Glasswort (Salicornia), Sea Purslane (Halimione portulacoides), Spiny Rush (Juncus acutus), Round-headed Club-Rush (Scirpus holoschoenus), Giant Cane (Arundo donax) or Tamerisk (Tamarix sp), are all species linked to the wetland.
Small meadows are interspersed between the wetland and the thicket. Here species that exhibit shrub-like structures such as Lentisc (Pistacia lentiscus), Grey-leaved Cistus (Cistus
albidus), and Montpelier Cistus (Cistus monspeliensis), Mock Privet (Phillyrea angustifolia) and also arboreal such as Italian Buckthorn (Rhamnus alaternus) and some
Wild Olive (Olea europaea sylvestris var.).
In the pine woods (Pinus halepensis) several of these species can be found intermixed as well as Myrtle (Myrtus communis), and some Carob trees (Ceratonia siliqua) and Wild Olive. Abundant herb species grow in between. Many of these species have been identified thanks to photographic activities (photo marathons) organized by the OTC.
