During the floristic investigations carried out in the province of Afyonkarahisar, approximately 2000 vegetated different plant species and subspecies were determined. 330 of these plant species were confirmed as endemic to Turkey (325 taxa ) and only to Afyonkarahisar (5 taxa). Plant families containing most of these endemic plant species are: Asteraceae (44 taxa), Fabaceae (42 taxa), Lamiaceae (39 taxa), Scrophulariaceae (37 taxa) and Caryophyllaceae (24 taxa). Verbascum (28 species) and Astragalus (22 species) are the most endemic species containing plant genera. 329 endemic taxa were evaluated according to IUCN risk categories as rare (lower risk, LR), threatened (vulnerable, VU; data deficient, DD) or endangered (critically endangered, CR; endangered, EN) and the number of plant taxons in these IUCN categories are as follows; 1 for DD, 2 for CR, 14 for EN, 32 for VU and 281 for LR.
