Description & Remarks

Chenopodium novopokrovskyanum is a species new to Israel and Jordan, growing in highly disturbed habitats, during the first years after disturbance. So far it has been collected in the Mediterranean territory of Israel. It is a tall annual (70-150 cm), with almost naked stems. The leaves are narrow and oblong or lanceolate; the leaf margin entire. It was first collected in 1977 by the side of the asphalt road in Kibbutz Kiryat Anavim. A small population was observed on the western side of the kibbutz during the first years after the road was widened and crushed rocks were poured onto the side of the road. A few years later it was out-competed by indigenous plants such as Avena sterilis and Piptatherum miliaceum. After 2010 it was found again on crushed rocks east and south of the gasoline station of Kiryat Anavim. It was also found in the Sharon (near Ganne Tiqva and Petah Tikva). It may be growing in many other places but overlooked. It was determined and published in 2013 in cooperation with Dr. Alexander Sukhorukov from Moscow University.
