Climate change is a global phenomenon of climate transformation that occurs as a result of changes in the ordinary climate of the world, especially due to human activities. As a result of this variability of the weather in the world; the sustainability of ecosystems threatens various development sectors, including agriculture, and accordingly the future of humanity. Factors such as temperature increase and precipitation change due to climate change directly affect the development and life of agricultural crops and plants by changing the CO2 level and biomass production in the air. To ensure crop resilience and the adaptation of plants in nature to changing weather events, it is essential to promote the conservation, use and exchange of plant biodiversity worldwide. It is inevitable that urban and rural landscape areas will also be affected by changes due to climate change. Matters such as the shape and duration of the change in landscape plants in these areas will affect the sustainability of the landscape areas. In order for landscape areas to adapt to global climate change, attention should be paid to the selection of species with high tolerance to stress factors from the landscape and ornamental plants (design plants), which constitute the main building block of landscape areas.
