TARİH: 18-22 Nisan 2018



Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs) have growing interest throughout the world. These plants are also well-known as Non-wood Forest Products (NWFP). From nature to standardized products, all these plants and products are interest of a number of sectors. Thus, their market size has gradually increased by the time. By huge development in this sector, scientific researches for supporting ethnobotanical heritage and investigating novel information have being done, governmental regulations for conservation biodiversity and protecting public health and private sector efforts to get a share from the market is increasing. Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are working all the related areas for biodiversity conservation, sustainable use of natural resources, encourage for their cultivation, awareness of public for muggers and to encourage for multidisciplinary actions of all related sectors for human welfare. Thus, scientific-based organizations are important forums to bring together all the stakeholders in the MAP and/or NWFP sectors.
