I have been working on a database that I have created with functional traits for the last 2.5 years. Using a dataset I created for endemic plant species in Turkey’s eastern Black Sea and western Mediterranean regions, I have been analyzing plant functional traits comparatively for two different biogeographic regions. I aim to emphasize Turkey’s rich plant biodiversity by means of the functional traits.
Since my undergraduate times, I have had opportunity to work in different subjects in FEL for the last 3.5 years. In my undergraduate period, I contributed to the creation of a database for Anatolian steppe ecosystems through functional traits, worked on a fire-related germination experiment, and helped to perform transect measurements on plants in Mediterranean shrublands.
