The most frequent species were Lamiaceae family with 18 species, Asteraceae family with 9 species, Apiaceae with 7 species, Brassicaceae with 6 species, and Rosaceae with 5 species, respectively. Regarding the life forms, 46% of the species were Hemicryptophytes, 20% were Phanerophytes, 14% were Therophytes, 11% were Chamaephytes, and 9% Geophyte. Regarding the geographical distribution, the plants under study included: 63.1% Irano-Turanian, 9.2% Irano-Turanian and Mediterranean, 7.7% cosmopolitan, 6.2% Irano-Turanian and Saharo-Sindian, 4.6% Irano-Touranian and Mediterranean and Saharo-Sindian, 4.6% Irano-Turanian and Euro-Siberian, 3.1% Irano-Touranian and Mediterranean and Euro-Siberian, and 1.5% Irano-Touranian and Mediterranean and Euro-Siberian and Saharo- Sindian.
