In this study, phylogeny and phylogeography of genus Ricotia L. (Brassicaceae), which is represented by nine species in eastern Mediterranean Region, is examined. Assigning Ricotia into a particular tribe, which has not been performed yet, determining outline of the genus limits, solving taxonomic problems and revealing biogeographic relationship of species is the aim of this study. In order to achieve these aims, morphological, molecular, cytometric and Ecological Niche Modelling (ENM) methods are performed. Study materials are mainly collected from Turkey and Greece. Apart from those, other samples are obtained from Israel Gene bank and various herbaria. Nuclear Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) and plastidic trnL-F, rps16-trnQ and rpL32-trnL (UAG) DNA regions are used to clarify both systematic position of genus in the family and infrageneric phylogeographic relationships.
