An Autecological Study on the Vitex agnus-castus L. (Verbenaceae)Distributed in West Anatolia
This study covers the investigation of the soil-plant relations of Vitex agnus-castus L. (Verbenaceae), a typical element of Mediteranean macchia vegetation. Soils collected from 38 different localitis in West Anatolia were analysed together with the V. agnus-castus plants from the same localities. This plant was observed to generally prefer loamy-textured, neutral and slightly alka-line soils, poor in calcium carbonate, containing varying amounts of organic matter, being rich or very rich in nitrogen, rich in phos-phorus and deficient in potassium. They grow on nonsaline soils. The relations between the results of soil and plant analysis were tested statistically, and correlation coefficient and regression curves determined.
