A general evaluation has been made about the findings obtained within the scope of the study. For riparian ecosystems, the studies’ sufficiency level interpreted held in Turkey, recommendations on how to correct the deficiencies have been developed. It is thought that it will make great contributions to the emergence of new research questions and the development of scientific project topics to increase the level of knowledge on the issue of recognition Riparian ecosystems in Turkey with this study.
