The total area of Turkey is used for 36.3% agriculturally, and is taken to 26.2 by wood.
In the close east the flora of Turkey counts "applies" as the most varied and most diverse ones. In the plateaus many wild flowers and are domestic, the steppes are controlled by shrubs "bushes", needle forests and black jaws, the dry areas "fields" also from thistles and cacti plants. In the north, above all, on the Black Sea coast, are found vast hazelnut-, maize "corn" - and tea plantations, in the south rather fruit - and cotton plantations and, above all, the plants which have adapted themselves to the dry summers, like evergreen hedges, shrubs "bushes", oaken trees, olive trees and carob trees.
In benefit animals cattle, horses, buffaloes, sheep and nanny goats are found as a matter of priority. The camel inventory went back in last decades continuously "constantly"; because her "their" original use gives way as a costs carrier today's "modern" high-priority for sporty competitions. Also many low wild kinds and wild boars are domestic, although itself her "their" inventory "stock" decimates by the hunt continuously "constantly".
