Dr. Dönmez and I discuss our routes for our field work which will start tomorrow. We plan on exploring the steppe regions of central Anatolia before heading to the central black sea region.
I had another opportunity to check the previous collections of Camelina that are located in the Haceteppe herbarium. I also examined other genera from the family Brassicaceae to get a better understanding of the family, its distribution, and what I should expect to see in the field.
During my time at Haceteppe University I was able to explore their steppe-like landscape and I was able to locate several species of Camelina within the University's garden area.
Flowers of Camelina hispida.
We ended up renting what I believe to be the same exact car that we used in the field in 2012, the trusty Dacia.
