Lathyrus L. (Papilionoideae, Fabaceae) is considered economically, ecologically, and genetically among the most significant genera of the flowering plants having its centre of diversity in Southwest Asia where Turkey is located. The anatomical and micromorphological characteristics of species of the genus Lathyrus have been reported in only a few studies. Thus, in the present study, comparative anatomy and leaf epidermal micromorphology of L. cassius Boiss., L. chloranthus Boiss. & Balansa, L. cicera L., L. hirsutus L., and L. sativus L. belonging to the section Lathyrus of this genus are comprehensively investigated by light and scanning electron microscopy so as to assess the taxonomic importance of anatomical and micromorphological characters in species separation. The results obtained reveal that some anatomical and micromorphological characters have proved useful for discrimination at the species level. Anatomical and micromorphological properties of taxonomic significance are as follows: the number of ray rows in the root, the outline of the stem in transverse section, the ratio of the wing length to the stem diameter, the number of vascular bundles in each wing, the shape of leaf epidermal cells, the pattern of their anticlinal walls, and the presence/absence of trichomes on the leaf.

Genetic diversity and structure of Populus nigra populations in two highly fragmented river ecosystems from Turkey
Çiftçi, Asiye; Kaya, Zeki (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-08-01)
European black poplar (Populus nigra L.) is an important tree species in terms of social, economic, and ecological interest in Turkey. Although large poplar plantations meet the needs of the economy, natural genetic resources of the species have been highly degraded due to anthropogenic effects such as overexploitation and habitat fragmentations. To assess genetic diversity and structure of fragmented populations, 124 naturally distributed European black poplar trees from two major rivers (Kızılırmak and Gö...
Taxonomic Importance of Seed Morphology in Allium (Amaryllidaceae)
CELEP, FERHAT; KOYUNCU, MEHMET; Fritsch, Reinhard M.; KAHRAMAN, AHMET; Doğan, Musa (2012-10-01)
Allium is one of the largest monocotyledonous genera. Southwest to Central Asia is the major center of diversity for the genus. In the present study, seeds of 62 Allium taxa from Turkey classified in subg. Allium (sect. Allium, sect. Brevispatha, sect. Codonoprasum and sect. Multicaule), subg. Amerallium (sect. Molium), subg. Melanocommyum (sect. Acanthoprason and sect. Melanocrommyum), and subg. Polyprason (sect. Falcatifolio and sect. Scorodon) were examined using light and scanning electron microscopy to...
Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and light microscope (LM) studies on the seed morphology of Verbascum taxa (Scrophulariaceae) and their systematic implications

Verbascum L. is the largest genus of the family Scrophulariceae and includes several species are of medicinal importance. In this study, external seed morphologies of 30 taxa included in Group A belonging to genus Verbascum L. (Scrophulariaceae) in Turkey, have been investigated using SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) and LM (Light Microscopy). Light microscope observations showed that seed size ranges from 0.3 mm to 1.5 mm in length and 0.1 to 0.6 in width. Seeds vary from oblong, oblong prismatic, trigon...
Genetic diversity pattern in Populus Nigra populations of two major river systems in Turkey
Çiftçi, Asiy; Kaya, Zeki; Department of Biology (2019)
European black poplar (Populus nigra L.) is an important tree species in terms of social, economic and ecological interest in Turkey. Although, poplar plantations in large areas meet the needs of the economy, the natural genetic resources of the species have been highly degraded due to anthropogenic effects and natural biological events. To assess genetic diversity structure of natural populations, 124 naturally distributed European black poplar trees from two major rivers (Kızılırmak and Göksu) in Turkey w...
