Published: 28 May 2015
Abstract: This review summarizes the extensive published literature on Astragalus eriocephalus, which is native to Turkey, Iran and Iraq, by firstly providing an overview of its general description, biology, population ecology, utility and management. We then critically review the ecological literature examining the biotic and abiotic interactions that drive the population and community dynamics of this species followed by information on its invasive status and management. We highlight critical research questions that remain unresolved in the Eastern Anatolian Region in Turkey within the context of an invasive species.
Keywords: biology, ecology, utilization, management
