Abstract
The spatial distribution and change analysis of Spartina can be derived by threshold classification of Landsat-5 TM images of 2002 and 2007 in Jiangsu coast. Moreover, the impact of Spartina's distribution change on the ecoenvironment in coastal area was analyzed. The result indicates that the area of Spartina rose from 128 km2 in 2002 to 187 km2 in 2007, with an annual growth rate of 46.1%.The area of Spartina is so large that it has a significant impact on the eco-environment. Thus, the intensive and systematic research on Spartina is of great importance.
