Abstract: 

In this study autecology of an endemic shrub species Platychaete aucheri Boiss. was investigated in south parts of Fars province belong to the Khalij-Omani region. Climatic data, topography, soil characteristics and vegetation attributes (density using nearest neighbor method, canopy cover using point-transect method) and phenology of desire species were studies. The forage quality in three major stages, including vegetative, flowering and seeding was determined. The results showed that P. auchri Boiss. is able to grow under conditions of low rainfall (maximum 285 mm/y) and high temperature (maximum 49.6oC), but has little tolerance to cold and frost weather. The habitat altitude ranges from 543 to 1120 meters above sea level, slope aspect of south and southeast and 7 to 80 slope percent. Average canopy cover of species is between 15.8 to 29 percent. The soils of habitats were sandy loam, non-saline and poor in organic matter and nutrients. The protein content (%) decreases during phenological stages (at high level 4.53% in flowering stage), also this protein content alone do not satisfy the livestock protein requirements. Due to the essential oils, the deep root system, woody aerial parts and as well as hairy leaf and stem, grazing pressure could be tolerated. Generally, P.aucheri has several benefits such as adaptation to hot and dry habitats of southern Fars, grazing resistant of life form, attractiveness of beekeeping, uses in traditional medicine and valuable role in controlling water and wind erosion may be introducing and considering as a multiple use species in combat desertification projects and reclamation of winter south rangelands of the country. Knowing of best methods to propagation and successful establishment of this endemic species requires further research.
