Özet

The purpose of this study was the pseudo-alpine vegetation of Kazdagi Mountain, which has a high number of endemic and rare plant species, as a result of the presence of different geological massives, and is an important gene center. The pseudo-alpine meadows of the Kazdagi containing siliceous and calcareous mother rocks was investigated according to, the classical Braun-Blanquet method between 2003 and 2006 and evaluated with Correspondence analysis (CA) and unweighted pair-group method using arithmetic average (UPGMA). Two new endemic associations described in the area; Armerio trojanae-Hypericetum kazdaghense and Diantho trojanus-Sideridetum trojanae attached to the alliance Trifolion parnassi.
