Phenetic traits of 39 populations belonging to 19 taxa of Scorzonera L. (Asteraceae) fromÂ north Anatolia were analyzed with the use of numerical methods. Principal componentÂ analysis (PCA) showed that pubescence and length of achenes, the shape of outerÂ phyllaries, and average length of flowering capitula, plant pubescence, root shape andÂ state of the plant stem are the best variables to distinguish the examined taxa. In addition,Â it was also found that binary are more important than quantitative characters in discriminatingÂ the examined Scorzonera taxa. Numerical results based on 25 morphological charactersÂ were discussed and compared with traditional taxonomic treatments.
