  Aim and Background. The genus Salsola is the largest genus in subfamily of Salsoloideae containing 100 species. 

 Materials and Methods. Some characteristics such as resistance to drought, saline, pests, diseased, grazing and having deep root system and different life forms make it suitable forage plant in arid lands. Different species of this genus are cultivated in salty lands where no other crops could give a good yield, or in areas where irrigation is possible only by salty water.

Results. The main aim of this investigation is the ecology survey of some species of Salsola in Golestan province where, different species of Salsola are the main plants in the vegetation. Annual species are distributed in lowlands with maximum % 15 slopes.

Conclusion. Habitats of three species, S. arbusculiformis, S. orientalis and S. tomentosa differ from the others in ecological condition where they grow in elevations (Max 1500 m) and pediment zone.
