Hasan YILDIRIM

Abstract


In scope of this study, road map of Walther Siehe who lived in Turkey during 25 years in the early 1900s and added great contribution to Flora of Turkey was put forward. Chionodoxa siehei and Verbascum rupicola were discovered by Walter Siehe and only known from the type localities. In spite of revisional and flora studies, these plants were not collected again from the type locality up to date. Recent years, rediscovered both species in İzmir that is far away from their type localities in records of Walter Siehe. Consequently, confusion in the records of plant collecting localities of Walter Siehe are demonstrated in this study
