Abstract: 
The importance of the ecology and ecotourism and natural conservation of the natural southern coastal areas of Caspian sea, especially the international coastal wetlands of Guilan, Mazindaran and Golestan provinces which serve as places of refuge for many migratory birds as well as habitat for aquatic animals, have been the reason for undertaking this study. The study area with avarage altitude -23 m and surface of 8000 ha covers coastal areas near the cities of Langerud and Lahijan. It begins from the Caspian Sea on the east and from the western side of the Amirkelayeh and other wetlands on the west. The northern and southern limits of the study area is defined by main bridge in the rural Chamkhaleh and the main bridge in the rural Jirbagh. Amirkelayeh wetland which has been designated as an international wetland is situated in this region.
This study covers climatic effects and geological conditions in the region. On the whole 320 plant species were examined of which 105 species were related to the Amirkelayeh wetland. Some of these determined species have been reported as new records for the flora of Iran and some of them are endemics in Hyrcanian area. Throphytes and hemicryptophytes are the most frequent life forms of the area. According to chorology, plants belong to several phytoregions. Additionally, plants found in three main aquatic, sandy and dry plain habitats were also studied. Limits and characteristics of each habitat are thoroughly explained.
