Abstract

We aimed to reveal the morphological, anatomical and micromorphological features of 36 Turkish orchids in detail. UPGMA cluster analysis was based on the presence or absence of anatomical, morphological and micromorphological characters such as root tuber, leaf or flower part structure, pit, sclerenchymatic sheath, vascular bundle shape, crystal and starch, exodermis and endodermis structure, stomata type, bulliform cell in roots, shoots or leaves, and surface structure like papillae, hairs and ornamentation on flower parts, leaves, fruits and seeds. In a phylogenetic framework, nuclear ribosomal ITS were used to investigate diversity in orchid species belonging to 12 genera. The combined evaluation of phylogenetic study, Bayesian Inference analysis obtained from anatomical, morphological and micromorphogical and ITS data confirmed that they can be more effective in assessing orchids having identification problems.
