The genus Limonium Mill. (Plumbaginaceae) is represented by approximately 150 species, the largest number of which is found in the arid regions of the western Mediterranean basin [1, 2]. All species are facultative halophytes and prefer saline soils .
Limonium bonduellei (T. Lestib.) Kuntze  (synonym: Statice bonduellei T. Lestib. , Limonium sinuatum (L.) Mill. subsp. bonduellei (T. Lestib.) Sauvage & Vindt ) is endemic to northern Sahara and is an annual herb characterized by a conspicuous yellow calyx, petals often appearing rigid with hard diaspore wings and extensions [5, 7].
This work deals with the essential oil composition of Limonium bonduellei grown in the Algerian northern Sahara, which was never previously studied.
The essential oil of the air-dried parts of L. bonduelleiwas extracted by steam distillation...
