In this study, essential oil constituents of Ferula parva fruit growing in endemic in Konya (Karaman-Mut road) in Turkey were determined. Essential oil from dried aerial parts of Ferula parva Freyn & Bornm were determined by GC-MS. The air dried plant material was subjected to hydrodistillation for 4 h using a Clevenger type apparatus to give yellow oils in 0.22% (F.parva). Forty constituents were identified, and they are representing 72.17% of the total oil. α-Pinene (26.39%), 2,6-dimethyl heptane (6.48%), β-pinene (6.99%), trans-verbenol (2.38%) and α-ylangene (2.83%) were established as major constituents of F.parva essential oil. Ferula parva Freyn & Bornm especially contained monoterpene hydrocarbons constituents These results show that this plant is remarkably important due to its constituent
