Abstract

Morphological, anatomical, geographical and numerical taxonomy studies suggested in an attempt to provide us more detailed descriptions of six species for the Fabaceae family newly added to the flora of Iraq. This species are: Trifolium pratense L., Cicer arietinum, Lathyrus vinealis, Melilotus alba, Vicia sativa, Medicago polymorpha. Results showed that the species Melilotus alba recorded the highest rate of stem length which ranged from 50cm-110 cm while the species Cicer arietinum recorded the lowest rate ranged from 15 cm-30 cm, also the species Trifolium pretense recorded highest rate of stipuleslength ranged from 20mm to 45mm andin anatomical studies the same species recordedhighest rate of epidermis thickness which was 40.51µm but the lowest rate recorded by the species Medicago polymorpha which was 15.13 µm. The grographical results showed that the altitude range of the species between 1000-3000 m. Finally, the numerical taxonomy used to clarify genetic relationships among these species.
