Abstract

Reclamation of Vegetation with Introduction of Adaptable Species in the Western Rangelands of Salt Lake at Fars Province, Iran

These Rangelands located on 18 km East of Shiraz city. This research aim to investigate the vegetation of these rangelands by compatible species. First, geographical location, geology, geomorphology, vegetation, water table depth, hydrogeology, pedology and climatology information were investigated. The typology was done by geomorphological data. Then, soil sampling was done through one meter depth in each type randomly and was tested by experiments involving saturated percentage, electrical conductivity, pH and Texture. Then within each vegetation type, sampling the vegetation was done completely and randomly using transect method and a transect of 30 m and three transect per each type were performed. Water table depth was obtained by total station camera, topographical maps and wells in the area and field studies. Finally according to data obtained from these studies and data obtained from relative resources, appropriate species for reclamation of these rangelands were introduced.
