Build Your Trip to Africa
With a varied and lush ecosystem, it is no surprise that Turkey plants are equally diverse – here you will find a large number of plants, from the forests of broadleaf deciduous trees and plants, to the towering oaks that grow in dense forests within the Mediterranean region and the sparse shrubs and steps of the Inner Anatolia region, through to the abundant wildflowers that grow naturally across the country. There are also a number of edible plants and crops, including chickpeas, lentils, apricots, almonds, figs, hazelnuts, cherries and sour cherries.
Vegetation in Turkey
Vegetation in Turkey comprises three main divisions. These include the Euro-Siberian Flora Area, Mediterranean Flora Area and the Irano-Tranian Flora Area. Vegetation within these divisions ranges from dense forests and woodlands to coastal vegetation and steppe vegetation. Vegetation changes as the altitude increases, with a range of deciduous and alien vegetation to be found across the country alongside farmlands and other cultivated areas.
