Six species from sand dunes of northwest Turkey were investigated for their total seed oil lipid and fatty acid (FA) profiles. The total oil content ranged from 4.26 to 33.64% (Plantago scabra and Glaucium flavum, respectively). The major FAs were linoleic, oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids (20.78-60.69%, 14.73-56.64, 5.42-15.13, and 1.65-3.67%, respectively). Considerable amounts of gamma-linolenic acid were found in Plantago scabra and Cionura erecta (13.13 and 1.37%, respectively). The unsaturated FA content ranged from 83.09% in Cardaria draba to 87.80% in Eryngium maritimum. Significant correlations between FA concentrations in these species were evaluated. These species, as alternative sources of unsaturated FAs, should be evaluated as novel salt-tolerant crops and used for improving salt tolerance of existing oilseed crops.
