The aim of this research is, identifying the most appropriate species used for planting in Hormozgan province dune fixation projects. For this purpose, after Spraying Oil Mulch as a temporary stabilizer, 30 seedlings of Prosopis juliflora, Prosopis cineraria, Acacia nubica & Calotropis procera species (totally 120 seedlings) were planted under the same conditions. These, the most common plant species are used in Hormozgan planting projects. The seedlings were irrigated for two years and were protected against grazing. By measuring survival percentage, plant coverage and autumn period of each species, data were collected and examined by SPSS software at 0.05 significant levels.
