Viewpoint: Plant community thresholds, multiple steady states, and multiple successional pathways: legacy of the Quaternary?
The climate cycles of the 2 million years of the Quaternary were a major force in the evolution of plant response to change. Quaternary climate has been primarily glacial with interglacials such asExpand
Climatic preferences and distribution of 6 evolutionary lineages of Typhlops vermicularis Merrem, 1820 in Turkey using ecological niche modeling
This study investigated the climatic preferences of 6 isolated evolutionary lineages of Typhlops vermicularis in Anatolia using ecological niche modeling and revealed that both glacial and interglacial modeling, as well as current modeling, showed the most important climatic variables that potentially limit the spread of 6 major lineages.

Holocene landscape dynamics at the tell Arslantepe, Malatya, Turkey – Soil erosion, buried soils and settlement layers, slope and river activity in a middle Euphrates catchment
Alluvial and colluvial sequences were studied around the prehistoric tell Arslantepe in 11 exposures and additional auger cores. The chronology is based on 11 optically stimulated luminescence (OSL)Expand
Population structure and genetic analysis of narrow-clawed crayfish (Astacus leptodactylus) populations in Turkey
The pattern of genetic variation among Turkish A. leptodactylus populations, therefore, suggests that the unrevealed intraspecific genetic structure is independent of geographic tendency and congruent with the previously reported geographic distribution and number of subspecies. Expand

Emerging multi-proxy records of Late Quaternary Palaeoclimate dynamics in Turkey and the surrounding region
We present an overview of selected papers published since 2000 that interpret Late Quaternary multi-proxy palaeoclimate records from Turkey and the surrounding region of the Near-Middle East andExpand
