Allium mardinensis, Mardin, endemic, leaf anatomy


In this study, the anatomical characteristics of Allium mardinensis Balos, H.Akan and Yıldırım, an endemic species specific to Mardin province, were revealed. In the anatomical study of Allium mardinensis species, leaf cross-sections were taken, Fast-green staining method was used and photographs were taken after the samples were turned into fixed preparations. When the anatomical features of the species were examined, it was seen that the general appearance of the leaf and the number of vascular bundles were important. The leaves have an equifacial appearance and the vascular bundles are of the closed collateral type.
