Abstract

The categories and distribution of halophytes in China are reviewed, and the floristic characteristics are discussed in this paper. Then we summarize using the value and their growing environments of cash crop halophytes of China. Finally, we take two halophytic plants as examples to show the current situation of sand industry of China.
