Thanks to several professors, doctors and biologists, a new endemic plant has been discovered in Western Armenia, which grows only in the vicinity of Lake Chyldyr in  Kars. As a result of research and careful work that lasted about 7 years on samples of various plants collected from the territory of Lake Chyldyr, it was decided that this species is a new plant for the scientific world. 

A photo of the new plant, named “Vincetoxicum anatolicum”, was published in the international scientific journal “Nordic Journal of Botany” and presented to science as a new endemic species. According to the criteria of the red list of endangered species, it is proposed to include the plant in the list of endemic endangered species.
