Abstract Se describen las comunidades vegetales halófilas halladas en tres ecosistemas andinos en los departamentos de Arequipa y Moquegua (sur de Perú) en campos con influencia de pastoreo, fuego, abandono de agricultura o ocupando suelos inundados en las márgenes de los ríos. Se aplicó la metodología fitosociológica de Braun-Blanquet (1979), muestreando 66 cuadrantes, situados entre 2250 m y 3460 m. Se identificaron un total de 31 especies (29 géneros y 19 familias), de las cuales Distichlis spicata, Schoenoplectus americanus, Suaeda foliosa y Atriplex myriophylla son las más representativas. La primera especie abunda en todos los salares pero está casi ausente en lagunas y canales de agua; las otras, reducen su presencia paulatinamente. En lagunas ocasionales y salinas la presencia de algas como Chara y Nitella es muy frecuente. Por último, se describe la vegetación de cuencas endorreicas salinas propias de la puna con Distichlis humilis. Este estudio describe ocho comunidades de vegetación halófila. Palabras clave: comunidades vegetales, fitosociología, vegetación halófila, Arequipa, Moquegua, Perú. ABSTRACT The plant communities found in three halophilic Andean ecosystems in the departments of Arequipa and Moquegua (southern Peru) in areas influenced by grazing, fire, neglect of agriculture and occupying flooded soils in river banks are described. The methodology of phytosociology by Braun-Blanquet (1979) was used, sampling 66 quadrats, located between 2250 m and 3460 m. A total of 31 species were identified (29 genera and 19 families), of which Distichlis spicata, Schoenoplectus americanus, Suaeda foliosa and Atriplex myriophylla are the most representative. The first species is abundant in all the salt flats but is almost absent in the lagoons and canals, with the other species that gradually reduce its presence. Occasional salty lagoons and the presence of algae (Chara and Nitella) is very common. Finally, we describe the vegetation of saline endorheic basins typical of the highlands (with Distichlis humilis). This study describes eight communities from halophytic vegetation. Keyword: plant communities, phytosociology, halophytic vegetation, Arequipa, Moquegua, Peru.
