The hypothesis obtained from a phylogenetic analysis based on fruit morphology suggests the polyphyly of the genus Onobrychis excluding section Dendrobrych is suggested, but the result supports monophyly of four generic sections.

Some conclusions are drawn on biodiversity and conservation of Tettigoniinae species in Anatolia and 23 species to be included in the 'IUCN Red List' under VU B2+ac are suggested.
Systematics, phylogeny and biogeography of Anterastes (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae, Tettigoniinae): evolution within a refugium
Çıplak, B. (2004). Systematics, phylogeny and biogeography of Anterastes (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae, Tettigoniinae): evolution within a refugium. —Zoologica Scripta, 33, 19–44.
Altitudinal size clines, species richness and population density: case studies in Orthoptera
Size clines for various external body structures in two grasshopper species and one katydid species are examined along an altitudinal gradient ranging from sea level to 1,980 m in southwest Anatolia (Turkey), suggesting that body sizes were generally larger at sites with high population densities.
Systematics and phylogeny of Parapholidoptera (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae: Tettigoniinae)
Cladistic analysis revealed the monophyly of the genus with two major clades, and Parapholidoptera flexuosa Karabag, previously a subspecies of P. castaneoviridis, is recognized as a separate species.
Review of the genus Eupholidoptera (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae): different genitalia, uniform song
The bush cricket genus Eupholidoptera, distributed across the northern Mediterranean Basin from Southern France to Israel, is reviewed and radiation within the genus is the result of divergence in genitalia.
Review of the Balkan Isophya (Orthoptera: Phaneropteridae) with particular emphasis on the Isophya modesta group and remarks on the systematics of the genus based on morphological and acoustic data.
A critical review of the taxonomy and systematics of the genus Isophya from the Balkan Peninsula, together with a revision of the I. modesta group, including its representatives outside the Balkans,
Review and key to species of Platycleis from Turkey (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) with descriptions of Yalvaciana subgen. n. and two new species
Species of Platycleis from Turkey are reviewed. Twenty-three species are recorded: Platycleis affinis (Fieber, 1853), P. albopunctata (Goeze, 1778), P. escalerai (Bolívar, 1899), P. intermedia
The contribution of Anatolia to European phylogeography: the centre of origin of the meadow grasshopper, Chorthippus parallelus
This work investigates the regional genetic differentiation of C. parallelus and evaluates the historical and evolutionary processes responsible for such genetic structuring, test the nature of the Turkish Straits system as a barrier to dispersal, and explore the contribution of Anatolian populations to the biodiversity of the Western Palaearctic.
Phylogeny and biogeography Eupholidoptera Mařan (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae): morphological speciation in correlation with the geographical evolution of the eastern Mediterranean
Epholidoptera Mařan is a Mediterranean lineage of Tettigoniidae, restricted to the northern and eastern basin of the Mediterranean, with a significant number of species found on the Aegean islands, and radiation in the genus is a result of divergence in morphology.
