Elevated soil salinity favors species with high leaf nitrogen per area, and this trait is principal on a salinity axis of specialization that also includes as key traits: leaf size, photosynthetic pathway, and leaf succulence. Location on the salinity axis is a strong predictor of species presence and relative abundance in inland salt and freshwater marsh communities.
