Abstract: This study was carried out to record the medicinal plants and plants used as food by the people living in and around Derecik district (Hakkari) between 2014-2017. One-on-one interviews were conducted with people living in the region and those who had knowledge about their use were asked to answer a survey. Demographic characteristics of the participants, local names of plants, parts used and usage patterns were recorded. The local names of some plants differ in different parts of Anatolia due to differences in language and dialect. As a result of the study; 55 plant taxa belonging to 27 families with medical use and 59 plant taxa belonging to 24 families with food use were determined. Plant use is very common in the regional culture. These plants can be used fresh, dried or can be stored in the refrigerator and be used throughout the year.
