New records for Turkey’s flora

Two new records for Turkey’s flora were published in the 3rd issue of “Bağbahçe Bilim dergisi”. Alkanna strigosa by Hasan Yıldırım & Corispermum nitidum by Mustafa Keskin et. al. By those records the Alkanna spp are increased to 38 and Corispermum spp to 3 in total. We congratulate the authors and our “Citizen scientists”, Maruf Balos in Şanlıurfa and Erol Kafas in Hatay, who helped the authors in the field works. The articles can be downloaded HERE.
