About The Website
I had the opportunity to participate in bio-diversity training programs in Kackar National Park and the Termessos National Park. I had the chance to travel with the Alpine Garden Society experts and members and I learned a great deal from them.
After almost 20 years of wildflower photography, finally, I processed thousands of images and categorized them into 61 plant families and locations. Finally, I share them on my website called Flora Of Turkey. If you visit, I’d appreciate your input as comments and corrections.
Visiting this site will change your perception of Turkey.
