Starting a series of miscellaneous contributions, by various authors, in the fields of taxonomy, nomenclature, site ecology and chorology of vascular plants of Turkey, the first instalment deals with 30 taxa of the families Alliaceae, Aristolochiaceae, Asteraceae, Brassicaceae, Caryophyllaceae, Hypericaceae, Poaceae, Scrophulariaceae, Valerianaceae and Violaceae, for which important range extensions and taxonomic considerations are included. The Barbarea minor agg. is revised and considered to comprise only one polymorphic species, B. brachycarpa, with four subspecies and four varieties and a diversity centre in Turkey. Four taxa from S Anatolia are described as new to science: Arenaria dianthoides subsp. tuncbasi, Barbarea brachycarpa var. ilicifolia, B. brachycarpa subsp. minor var. pilicarpa and Hypericum saxifragum subsp. eglandulosum. Five new combinations are validated in the genera Barbarea, Minuartia and Noccaea. Six mostly very recently described local endemics of the Taurus Mts of the genera Allium, Arenaria, Barbarea and Helichrysum are sunk in synonymy. For Silene sumbuliana an alternative sectional classification is proposed. A first chromosome count is given for Viola dirimliensis, with 2n = 8 reported in the genus for the first time. Verbascum rupicola, previously known only from the type gathering in 1912, is rediscovered.
