Abstract: Soil loss by erosion has been defined as a global problem since the vegetative dispersal diminished in recent years. The erosion is severe in European countries where vulnerability of the agricultural fields has been alarming. Turkey has been experiencing a serious land degradation issue due to erosion with approximately soil loss of 500 106 t y 1 and 83.21% of agricultural lands are estimated to be under risk. Also, there is a gap in the literature about how to select the plant species for erosion control and management in Turkey. Therefore, the aim of this study was to create a check list of some erosion control plants which can be planted in Mediterranean region of Turkey. Providing a check list for increasing the density of vegetation against soil erosion can help land owners and managers to maintain the farmlands and forest cover and pioneer decision-making plans. By this way, prospective researches may benefit from the erosion control plant species and easement of their selection process.

Key words: Erosion control in Turkey, erosion prevention, soil degradation, soil loss.
