Mersin University Research Herbarium (MERA) plants which are collected from Middle Taurus mountains are part of the Alpin-Himalayan system. In this research, the importance of these plants in terms of endemism and rare specimens is emphasized and they are compared with some of the Alpin and Himalayan plants.
MERA is presented for the first time. The 5000 sheets of specimens were collected between 1996-2009. Our results indicate that Asteraceae, Lamiaceae, Fabaceae, Poaceae are common families collected from the highplateaus in Gülnar, Bozyazı, Mut, Erdemli, Çamlıyayla and Tarsus province of Mersin.
