Republic of Macedonia is situated in Balkan Peninsula with a total area of 25,942 km2 and 1.26 million hectares of agricultural land, where 560,000 ha are arable land (44.2%) mainly located in the valleys and 700,000 ha are pastures (55.6%), located in hilly and mountainous regions of the country. There are approximately 11,000 ha saline soils, mainly found in four valleys (Ovche Pole, Pelagonija, Skopska and Strumica). These soils are of natural origin, but anthropogenic factors play important direct and indirect role in their genesis. The halophyte vegetation on these soils has been studied at length. This vegetation is facing great biotic interferences as a result of this some species or associations are threatened with extinction. This paper will therefore try to enlighten the current situation of this vegetation in Macedonia.
