In this research essential oil and leaf fatty acid compositions of Tanacetum densum subsp. eginense,Inula germanica, Grammosciadium macrodon and Seseli peucedanoides were analyzed by GC/GC-MS. Borneol (20.7%), 1-8 cineole (13.4%) and Camphor (12.4%) were detected the main compounds of Tanacetum densum subsp. eginense; -caryophyllene (20.4%), Germacrene D (11.4%) and Borneol (11.3%) were detected the major constituents of Inula germanica; Caryophyllene oxide (12.5%), Camphor (11.8%) and-3-carene (10.4%) were determined the main compounds of Grammosciadium macrodon; Limonene (21.2%), -Pinene (12.6%) and -Phellandere (11.1%) were found to be the main compounds of Seseli peucedanoides. The major fatty acid composition of studied samples were found to be Palmitic (21.84-47.48%), Steraic (11.96-31.09%), Petroselinic (2.91-15.74%), Linoleic (6.46-33.77%) and Linolenic acid (5.24-35.25%); while other fatty acids were found in small proportions.
