Silene aristidis

Abstract : This species is endemic to the "Kabylies-Numidia-Kroumiria" plant diversity hotspot (Véla and Benhouhou 2007) in northern Algeria. The extent of occurrence (EOO) is estimated at 2,623 km2 and the area of occupancy (AOO) is 32 km2. The species is assessed as Vulnerable (A3c; B1ab(iii,iv,v)+2ab(iii,iv,v); C2a(i)) because of its natural restricted population and the future predicted decline of the population due to the presence of some active threats such as quarries close to the localities of Bouzegza and Ifri N'ziri, and the shotcrete concrete on the cliffs of Ammal gorges and Bin El Ghedrin gorges. An improvement in biological and ecological knowledge both in situ and ex situ with awareness-raising could be helpful to protect its natural habitat.
