Abstract

This investigation englightens the morphological, anatomical and ecological characteristics of Kazdağı endemics namely Allium reuterianum Boiss. and Allium sibthorpianum Schultes & Schultes fil. (Liliaceae). A. sibthorpianum occurs in Bursa, Kütahya, Denizli, Isparta and Çanakkale (newly recorded), whereas A. reuterianum is found in Southwest Anatolia, Islands, Manisa, Denizli, Muğla, Isparta and Çanakkale (newly recorded). Root anatomy of A. sibthorpianum and A. reuterianum typically show exodermis and an empty pith. In addition in the scapes of both the species layering in the area between epidermis and cuticle results in its thickening. The leaves in both species are not hairy. Reticulate shaped open spaces are met with in the bulbs surrounded by thick walled cells formed as a result of drying. These species prefer the soils rich in nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and organic matter.
