This study was carried out at the meadows and pastures in Çolpan village of Van province in 2020.In the study, matter yield, botanical composition, plant covered area, rate ofdecreaser/increaser/invader species were determined. The Loop method was used to determine thebotanical composition. In grassland area were identified 69 species belonging to 17 families. Inmeadow area were identified 20 species belonging to 6 families. The amount of Poaceae, Fabaceaeand other families found in the grassland area were determined as 18.66%, 15.65%, and 65.69%,respectively. In the meadow area, the amount of Poaceae, Fabaceae and other families weredetermined as 67.50%, 15.0%, and 17.50%, respectively. Artemisia spicigera (4.74%)Taeniatherum caput-medusae (5.0%) Arenaria serpyllifolia (5.0%) Medicago monantha (5.92%)species were the most common species found in the grassland area. Hordeum brevisubulatum(25.5%), Bromus scoparius (16.75%), and Taraxacum androssovii (9.25%) species were the mostcommon species found in the meadow area. According to the ratio of good plants, pasture wasclassified as poor pasture and meadow was in the moderate meadow class. Grassland and meadowmatter yields were found to be 91.4 kg/da and 385.2 kg/da, respectively. In the grassland of Çolpanvillage, invader species were found to be dense. It was concluded that grassland area should beimproved.
