The Kinds and the Priority Order of Means of Subsistence in Term of theNumber of the Villages in the Subprovinces in Turkey, Master?s Thesis, Advisor: Prof.Dr. Mesut Elibüyük, 106 p.ABSTRACTWe have two inventories about the total number of Turkish villages, that is, 1981and 1997 inventories. In the part of about the means of subsistence of these inventories, 15means of subsistence types are determined and issue of how many villages in eachsubprovince make a living from these means of subsistence as a primary and secondarysource are dwelled up.As regards means of subsistence types agriculture, breeding, fruit growing, fisheryproducts, mining, (village) handicrafts, forestry and flower growing, these are common.Agriculture crafts, labour, silk-worm breeding and olive growing are mentioned in 1981inventory, this means of subsistence are not included in 1997 inventory under a differenttitle. And, altough the total number of villages which make a living from tourism, stonecarving and wood work handicrafts are not included in 1981 inventory, this are present in1997 inventory.The distrubution of the means of subsistence types in Turkish subprovinces isstrongly related to geographical conditions. In the plains fields where climate is proper,agriculture is widespread while breeding is in the second place. As altitude and effects ofcontinental climate increase, agriculture recedes and breeding proceeds. Apart from these,fruit-growing and vegetable-growing are related to the types of fruits and vegetable yougrow and climate and soil characteristics, too. Bee-keeping -if flora characteristics areproper- , mining -if the geological structure is proper-and extracting and carving variousstones can also be means of subsistence.
