    Within the West-Paleartic, Turkey is home to many taxonomic groups and is critically
    located at a cross-point of geographical regions with large climatic and topographical gradients
    contributing, at least in part, to the rich diversity of habitats, ecosystems, and biodiversity therein.
    Loss of deadwood habitats is but one major concern in conservation or biodiversity efforts in the
    region. An emblematic group, such as Lucanus spp. of the family Lucanidae, may prove to be a
    critical component of these conservation efforts. Eight taxonomic groups of Lucanus spp. are
    found in Turkey. A taxonomic key for these species and subspecies was developed and should
    serve as a basis for gathering needed data on the distribution, ecology, biology, and occurrence
    of Lucanus spp. in Turkey and surrounding areas.
