In the study, a genetic pool was created with plant samples taken from the locations where the Thymbra spicata var. spicata L. plant, which is culturally and economically important, grows densely in the province of Hatay. Plants were propagated with cuttings taken from these single plants. 213 plants were collected from 68 different locations for the genetic pool. The leaves of the plants in this gene pool were examined in terms of the number of essential oil glands per unit area and the diameter of the essential oil glands. The number of glands per unit area in plant leaves showed a wide variation and ranged from 5.61 to 56.04 pieces/mm². The diameters of the oil glands varied between 75.40 - 112.86 µm and the average diameter was determined as 94.09 µm. In the study, it was determined that some plants with low essential oil ratios such as Z144 and Z158 also have low oil glands number and oil glands diameter. It would be appropriate to evaluate these values obtained as preliminary knowledge together with future ontogenetic variability studies.
