The main goal of this project is to generate a unique digital database of “Orchids of Turkey” that contains all the data collected from major herbaria of Turkey and related European countries which have significant collections of Turkish orchids. These data will provide us an important tool for documenting the historical distribution of taxa and designing conservation strategies to cope with conservation concerns such as salep collecting, over grazing, habitat loss, and climate change. This research will be an important milestone for designing conservation strategies for the highly endangered orchids of Turkey.
