Comparative Morphological, Anatomical, and Ecological Studies on two subspecies of Stachys balansae Boiss. & Kotschy Growing in Turkey.

In this study, comparative morphological, anatomical, and ecological studies of two subspecies of Stachys balansae Boiss. & Kotschy (Stachys balansae Boiss. & Kotschy subsp. balansae and Stachys balansae Boiss. & Kotschy subsp. carduchorum R. Bhattacharjee) are investigated. The morphological features of various organs of the plant such as leaf, bracts, calyx, corolla, and seed are described in detail with their general views. The anatomical studies on cross-sections of root, stem, petiole, calyx, leaves and surface sections of leaves were examined and are supported by photographs. Morphological studies; S. balansae subsp. balansae differs from S. balansae subsp. carduchorum in its leaves sericeous-pilose on upper surface; cauline leaves narrowly oblong-lanceolate. It has been observed that there are some differences in clayx and leaves indumentums in two subspecies. The leaves are bifacial and have stomata cells that are diacytic. In ecological studies, the chemical and physical properties of the soil are analyzed.
