Abstract

The Black Sea region belongs to one of the richest regions of Turkey regarding biological diversity. In total 2239 species are present in the East Black Sea region, 514 of them are endemic and the endemism ratio is ca. 23 %. More than half of the plants distributed at the East Black Sea region are present in the Rize province and almost 70 % of the plants are of medicinal and aromatic value. Four Mentha species, three Origanum species, three Thymus species, two Salvia species, two Stachys species and one Calamintha species were collected from 19 different localities in Rize during 2015. A field nursery was established using collected material. A field nursery was established using collected material. Further, Principal Component Analysis was used to distinguish present genetic diversity based on essential oil composition. The obtained data valued that large diversity could be determined and collected materials can be used as genetic resources in further investigations.
