İlkay Çorak Öcal


Opiliones are affected by environmental conditions. Opiliones are found in almost every habitat. Species diversity and number of individuals are increasing especially in places with moist and frequent vegetation. Opiliones are important and useful components of many ecosystems. In addition, when we examined from an ecological perspective, both strong predators and strong indicator species. Antalya is a moist province, therefore, it is expected that there will be a large variety of opiliones. In this study, it is aimed to investigate the relationships between opiliones species and height, district, soil type and vegetation in Antalya. The similarities between the categories of variables were interpreted on graphs.
