THE NUMERICAL COMPARISON OF ANATOMICAL FEATURES OF LAMIACEAE TAXA ON SPIL MOUNTAIN
Lamiaceae family to which the investigated taxa belong are of high importance for their antioxidant potential, multiple pharmaceuticaluses in folk medicine. In this study, the anatomical features of some taxa (Origanum sipyleum, Satureja parnassica subsp. sipylea, Sideritis sipylea, Thymus sipyleus subsp. sipyleus var. sipyleus) belonging to the Lamiaceae distributed on the Spil Mountain of Turkey were compared statistically. The some anatomical features of the stem were selected and measurements were taken. The data obtained from the anatomical features were evaluated statistically. The results showed that investigated taxa also could be distinguished from each other not only by their morphological features but numerical anatomical characters as well.
