Murat ÖZOCAK [1] , Erkan ÜNALAN [2]


Our country has a wide flora in terms of growing and general distribution of medicinal and aromatic plants. The wide spread of these plants and the work in this field are increasing day by day. Based on this situation, a taxonomic study of 33 medical and aromatic plants showing natural distribution and playing a big role in terms of human health has been carried out in Hanönü district of Kastamonu region, which has a botanical wide flora. Images of all the identified species were taken in the growing region. Along with the pictures of the plants detected, the names of local usage and scientific Latin names and the places where they grow in the region are briefly explained. Recommendations were made to raise awareness of the consumption of the identified species, and to prevent unnecessary consumption and extinction. Beside, it is recommended to increase the scientific research on the subjects such as cultivation, drying parameters and storage of medicinal and aromatic plants starting from the Kastamonu region.
