Does Chinese food also include dried vegetables?

I like Chinese food and more so due to the fact that most vegetables are saute'd rather than cooked in the conventional style. This prevents losing nutrients while cooking. I was wondering if Chinese cooking also uses vegetables that are either sun-dried or salted and dried for use later?

Well dried seaweed is quite popular in chinese dishes, and so are dried chilis.
