Notes

Molecular phylogenetic studies clearly show that Alexandra and Borsczowia should be included in a monophyletic Suaeda (Kapralov & al. 2006), despite the arguments by Lomonosova & Freitag (2011), who prefer a paraphyletic Suaeda by keeping Alexandra as a separate genus. The study by Schütze & al. (2003) is currently the most comprehensive molecular and morphological study of the genus. The pollen morphology of Suaeda was studied by Dehghani & Akhani (2009).
