Article

Abstract

Through studying biological and ecological characteristics ofTamarix L., we found wide adaptability to different ecological environment and high endurance of adversity. When planted in the edge of desert and periphery of oasis,Tamarix will act as excellent sand-fixing shrubs, improve ecological environment and play a positive role. However, introducingTamarix unreasonably will deteriorate the ecological environment and reduce biodiversity and play a negative role. Grasping the biological and ecological characteristics ofTamarix will do much to benefit further developing and utilizing of the resources
