This paper presents the results of recent field surveys and provides new data on the spider fauna of Turkey. The following 9 taxa are new records for Turkey: Larinia chloris (Audouin, 1826); Macrothele sp.; Arctosa tbilisiensis Mcheidze, 1946; Pisaura consocia (O. P.-Cambridge, 1872); Prodidomus redikorzevi Spassky, 1940; Macaroeris flavicomis (Simon, 1884); Scytodes velutina Heineken & Lowe, 1832; Achaeridion conigerum (Simon, 1914); and Phoroncidia paradoxa (Lucas, 1846). New locality data are provided for the following previously but rarely recorded species: Spermophora senoculata (Duges, 1836); Ariadna insidiatrix Audouin, 1826; and Segestria senoculata (Linnaeus, 1758). Taxonomic, zoogeographical, and ecological data are given for each species.


Numerical taxonomy of the Genus Salvia (Sage) in East and Southeast Anatolia
Kahraman, Ahmet; Doğan, Musa; Arı, Nurettin (2017-12-08)
This study aims to carry out multivariate statistical analyseson 59 taxa of the genus SalviaL. (sage) naturally found in East and Southeast Anatolia in Turkey based on macromorphological, anatomical, palynological and mericarp micromorphological characteristics, to construct an infrageneric grouping in the genus and tounderstandthephylogeneticrelationships between taxa.For the multivariate correspondence analyses, OTUs (Operational Taxonomic Units) representing different populations of the Salvi...
Taxonomic notes on two sibling species of Metellina from Asia (Araneae, Tetragnathidae)
ÖZKÜTÜK, RECEP SULHİ; Marusik, Yuri M.; Kunt, Kadir Bogac; Elverici, Mert (2017-01-01)
Two sibling species, Metellina orientalis (Spassky, 1932) and M. kirgisica (Bakhvalov, 1974), occurring in the Middle East and Central Asia are redescribed and their distributions mapped. The previously unknown male of M. kirgisica is described for the first time. Stridulatory files on male chelicera of Metellina are also documented for the first time. The occurrence of M. kirgisica in Azerbaijan and Tajikistan and the presence of M. orientalis in Turkey are confirmed.
Spatiotemporal trends in daily and subdaily rainfall extremes and return levels in Turkey
Albayrak, Derya; Şen, Ömer Lütfi; Yücel, İsmail (2022-11-01)
In this study, we present the long-term daily and subdaily station data of annual extreme rainfall (1970-2015) and the trend analyses in rainfall regimes in Turkey. Trends in 5, 10, 15, and 30 min, 1, 2, 6, 12, and 24 hr of extreme rainfall in seven different rainfall regimes are estimated through nonparametric tests. The trends in return levels (2, 20, and 100 years) are defined by an appropriate three-parameter generalized extreme value distribution and are evaluated in the climatological context of rainf...
Social context of small find distribution at Domuztepe : ritual display and society
Erdem, Deniz; Atakuman, Çiğdem; Department of Settlement Archaeology (2013)
This study examines the spatial distribution of small finds within a late Neolithic ritual context at the site of Domuztepe-Kahramanmaraş (c. 6500-5500). This ritual context is composed of 3 interrelated components, namely the Death Pit, the Ditch and the Burnt Structure, all of which were found located in relation to a specially prepared space made up of compacted red earth, which is called the Red Terrace. The small finds that were recovered from these contexts during the excavations included items such a...
Differential topology of quotients of complex surfaces by complex conjugation
Finashin, Sergey (1998-01-01)
The paper contains a brief survey of the author's results on the diffeomorphism type of quotients of complex surfaces by anti-holomorphic involutions. The conjecture of complete decomposability is discussed, which says that if such a quotient is simply connected, then it is completely decomposable, i.e., is diffeomorphic to the connected sum of several copies of the projective plane (possibly, with reversed orientation) and the quadric. ©1998 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
