2nd day in my Turkish survey

Today, I took residue samples from stone querns placed on the site. For examining their contaminated problems, I also took samples from natural stones near their stored place.

These stone querns are stored an outcrop place falling down hay and seeds, and it rarely seemed to rain.

This corm was provided by a worker. Its local name is "kember" and it's a kind of medicinal plants. I don't know about its scientific name yet.

After searching some literatures, this plant is the following corm. It have a beneficial effect on diabetes.

Arum detruncatum C.A.Mey. ex Schott var. virescens K. Alpinar & Miller (Araceae)
Local name: Karibel
