Ecological properties of vegetation formations on karst terrains in the central Taurus Mountains (Southern Turkey)
MetadataShow full item record
There is a strict relationship between the formation of karst topography, soils and vegetation on karst terrains. The Central part of Taurus Mountains of southern Turkey is rich in terms of topographical variety and karstic landforms. Karst topography has a strong influence on the development of soil types and vegetation formations. Karst formations such as karren, doline, uvala, karstic valley and poljes create unique habitats with different micro-climatic, soil and vegetation characteristics that differ from neighbouring sites.
