The legume species in the flowering time were harvested on 6500 da in campus area for every three days interval from beginning of March to end of July, 1999. Forty six legume species, subspecies or varieties were determined and sampled as different number for each species. Some morphological properties such as; growing form of species, color of flower, flowering period, number of stem on root, length of main stem and some chemical properties such as; crude protein ratio, crude ash ratio, Ca, Mg, K, Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn contents and K/(Ca+Mg) ratio were determined for all species. Samsun province is an important gene origin for the most legume species. Therefore, many differences in morphological properties were determined among the species. According to results of chemical properties, nutritional quality values of legume species were higher than the recommended standard values.
