Historic buildings, as a legacy of ancient civilizations, are important cultural assets. Antalya is very rich in terms of these old cultural
structures such as mosques, mausoleums, clock towers, madrasahs, tombs, baths, and castles. Plants found in these historical buildings were
collected and classified between March and June, 2014. On these historic structures, 38 seed plant taxa belonging to 20 families were
identified. The most abundant types of these plants are Hyoscyamus aureus L., Scrophularia pinardi Boiss., Cymbalaria microcalyx (Boiss.)
Wettst., Capparis orientalis Veill., Parietaria judaica L., Galium canum subsp. ovatum Req. ex DC., Conyza Canadensis (L.) Cronquist and
Bromus rigidus Roth. These plants are aesthetically beautiful. Yet, they give damage to the structure of these historic buildings. By
preventing this damage here, it is expected to lengthen the life of these historical monuments by the removal of those invaders by means of
mechanic and biological control.
