Plant biotechnology in Turkey
Oeem, H. A. (2004-09-17)
Turkey's land area is 752 million square km. Of this land area 36% is cultivated and 6% is irrigated. 30% is covered with shrubs and forests. Major agricultural production is composed of (in million Ha): cereals (13.7), industrial plants (cotton, sugar beet, sunflower, tobacco) (2.65), legumes (1.6) and others (mainly vegetables and fruit trees). In Turkey, plant biotechnology research is conducted mainly by the universities and also by governmental agricultural research institutes. Total number of universi...
Leaf anatomy of Agropyron Gaertn. (Gramineae) in Turkey
Mavi, D. Ozlem; Doğan, Musa; Cabi, Evren (2011-01-01)
Agropyron cristatum (L.) Gaertn. is represented by 2 subspecies in Turkey, namely subsp. incanum (Nabelek) Melderis and subsp. pectinatum (M.Bieb.) Tzvelev. This study examines the taxonomic significance of the leaf properties of the taxa of Agropyron Gaertn., comprising diagnostic anatomical features obtained from leaf transverse sections as well as leaf surface micromorphology. Results of the study show that most of the characters, such as the shape of the leaf blades; the size and number of stomata; the ...

Pollen morphology of Agropyron cristatum (L.) Gaertner. s.s. (subsp. incanum (Nabelek) Melderis and subsp. pectinatum (M. Bieb.) Tzvelev, latter including var. pectinatum and var. imbricatum (Roemer & Schultes) G. Beck) in Turkey has been studied by using light microscope and scanning electron microscope. The above-mentioned taxa are homogenous in both aperture type and exine ornamentation. Pollen grains are monoporate (rarely diporate in the case of var. imbricatum) having scabrate grouped exine surface. T...
Species level classification of Mediterranean sparse forests-maquis formations using Sentinel-2 imagery
Caglayan, Semiha Demirbas; Leloğlu, Uğur Murat; Ginzler, Christian; Psomas, Achilleas; Zeydanlı, Uğur Siyami; Bilgin, Cemal Can; Waser, Lars T. (2020-07-01)
Essential forest ecosystem services can be assessed by better understanding the diversity of vegetation, specifically those of Mediterranean region. A species level classification of maquis would be useful in understanding vegetation structure and dynamics, which would be an indicator of degradation or succession in the region. Although remote sensing was regularly used for classification in the region, maquis are simply represented as one to three categories based on density or height. To fill this gap, we...
Morphological and physico-biochemical characterization of various tomato cultivars in a simplified soilless media
Khan, Mahboob Ahmad; Butt, Shahid Javed; khan, Khurshied Ahmed; Nadeem, Faisal; Yousaf, Balal; Javed, Hafiz Umer (2017-12-01)
This study aimed to investigate nine commercial cultivars of tomato, in order to identify the most suitable cultivar in terms of morphological (plant height, fruit size, fruit weight and total yield) and physico-biochemical (color, firmness, total soluble solid, titratable acidity, ascorbic acid, total sugar, reducing and non-reducing sugar, β-carotene and lycopene) attributes. Plants were cultured hydroponically in the greenhouse. Results revealed that the morphological attributes of Beefsteak Group (BG) o...
