The genus Hordeum L., one of the most economically important cereal crops in the tribe Triticeae, has a worldwide distribution mainly in temperate and dry regions of the world. In Turkey, Hordeum is represented by 12 taxa, namely Hordeum violaceum Boiss. & Hohen., H. geniculatum All., H. marinum var. marinum, H. marinum Hudson var. pubescent (Guss.) Nevski, H. murinum L. subsp. murinum, H. murinum subsp. glaucum (Steudel) Tzvelev, H. murinum subsp. leporinum (Link) Arc. var. leporinum, H. murinum subsp. leporinum var. simulans Bowden, H. bulbosum L., H. spontaneum K.Koch, H. distichon L., and H. vulgare L. The main objective of this study is to assess the significance of anatomical characteristics of the leaves. For this purpose, dehydrated specimens were embedded into paraffin and transverse sections were gathered. Furthermore, the leaf surfaces were examined. Results of the study show that anatomical characteristics of the leaf blades vary between the taxa in both qualitative and quantitative values. Sclerenchymatic cells, silica bodies, and stomata, furrow and rib properties, the existence of midrib and bulliform cells, and indumentum properties such as arrangement, density, and length of macro hairs are all included in these diagnostic characteristics. Based on these anatomical characteristics, an identification key for the taxa is given for the first time.

Investigation of the effects of folk medicinal plant Epilobium Hirsutum L. on cytochrome P450 dependent and antioxidant enzymes : a molecular approach
Karakurt, Serdar; Adalı, Orhan; Şen, Alaattin; Department of Biochemistry (2013)
The genus Epilobium sp. (Onagraceae) is widely distributed all over the world and consists of nearly 200 species. Epilobium hirsutum L. (EH) one of the members of this genus is known as its analgesic, anti-microbial and anti-proliferative activity and it is used in our country as an alternative medicine. The pharmacological effect of EH could be explained by the presence of polyphenolics including steroids, tannins and flavonoids in the aerial parts. Cytochrome P450s (CYPs) known as phase I enzymes have imp...
Aegilops triuncialis subsp. bozdagensis (Poaceae), a new subspecies from South-Western Turkey
Cabi, Evren; Ekici, Burçin; Doğan, Musa (2018-02-01)
A new subspecies Aegilops triuncialis L. subsp. bozdagensis Cabi & Doğan, is described and illustrated. This new subspecies is confined to Denizli, Acıpayam, Bozdağ in southwestern Anatolia. It differs from the other two subspecies of Ae. triuncialis subsp. triuncialis and Ae. triuncialis subsp. persica, by its unawned glumes of the lateral spikelets. Concerning the new subspecies, IUCN red list category, distribution map, notes on its biogeography and ecology are given. An identification key of the subspec...
A Micromorphological study on the genus thymus lamiaceae in Turkey
Kütükalan, Damla; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2019)
The genus Thymus L.(Lamiaceae) having its center of diversity in the Mediterranean distributed mainly in the Old World includes 45 species in Turkey. It belongs to the monophyletic subfamily Nepetoideae. In this study, epidermal micromorphological properties of 32 species of Thymus were examined by using scanning electron microscopy. Micromorphology of vegetative and floral organs were found to be providing good taxonomic features for understanding phylogeny of the genus.

Phylogenetic relationships of Elymus L. and related genera (Poaceae) based on the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer sequences
Dizkirici, Ayten; Kaya, Zeki; Cabi, Evren; Doğan, Musa (2010-11-23)
To help in the clarification of the taxonomic status of Elymus L. and related genera Agropyron Gaertn., Leymus Hochst., Hordelymus (Jess.) Harz, and Brachypodium P.Beauv., the sequence diversity in the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of nuclear ribosomal DNA was studied. ITS data of 64 Triticeae accessions including 40 Elymus, 12 Agropyron, 7 Leymus, and 4 Hordelymus, and 1 Brachypodium as an out-group were analysed. The molecular diversity statistics indicated that the most diverse genus is Elymus...
