The importance of Uromie Lake National park and Biosphere Reserve associated with is known worldwide and thus, maintaining its optimized well-being and values are on the priority list of preserving, rehabilitation and ecologic management programs. Plants, as primary producers of the greater Uromie Lake ecosystem, despite their greater diversity have covered much lesser areas primarily because of climate change and disturbing human activities. Natural phenomena have caused for the Uromie Lake to retrogress and dry out in many areas, leaving bare lands behind, providing the opportunity for farmers to grasp more land for farming practices and in some areas, natural populations of halophyte plants pioneer. We do not know, how much of the plant success is because of natural processes, such as plant symbiosis, and thus, acquires further investigation. In this paper, results of a preliminary survey on soil and frequent plant species communities are presented, probable natural causes contributing to retrogression of Uromie Lake and potentials of using plant pollen and fungal spores records for determining past lake behavior are discussed.
