Plant litter of Zygophyllum was collected in the desert region (Suez desert region and Mediterranean coastal region). The litter was subdivided into leaves, stems, flowers and fruits. The mean total litter production was 173.3 g per shrub per year in the Mediterranean region and 138.3 g per shrub per year in the Suez region. Leaves constitute generally the largest litter category composing 70-76% of the total litter. The nitrogen and phosphorus concentration of fresh leaves was found to be twofold more than that of nitrogen and phosphorus found in the litter.
