Salt cedar is widely spread out in most part of the country but there is lack of information about its symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. Then, the main objective of this study was to evaluate the symbiosis of AMF with salt cedar and its affectability by distance from river and soil physiochemical properties. For this purpose, riparian Maroon forest width was divided to three locations including riverside area, intermediate area and the area far from river with 200-hundred-meter interval. In each site 10 salt cedars were randomly selected and soil plus hair root samples were gathered from the salt cedar rhizosphere. Our result indicated that root colonization and spore density in the intermediate distance had the lowest and highest values, respectively. These values were significantly different compared to the other two sites. The average root colonization percent in the riverside area, intermediate area and the area far from river sites were 82.37, 73.77 and 80.17, respectively. While the average spore density in the riverside area, intermediate area and the area far from river were 189, 245.5 and 188.8 in five gram soils, respectively. Root colonization had significant positive correlation with soil potassium while spore density had significant correlation with studied soil physiochemical properties. Also, soil nitrogen, organic carbon, potassium and clay showed 52.6, 51.19, 50 and 23.4% decreasing trend from the riverside area to the area far from river. Regarding this research results, salt cedar showed high level of symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi but this symbiosis could be affected by distance from river in riparian forest.
