The aim of this study is to investigate the awareness of the geography and biology students about recognizing some plants which they see frequently around them in accordance with the information they gained during their education process. The sample of the study consists of 37 biology and 40 geography students studying at the Ahmet Kelesoglu Education Faculty of the Necmettin Erbakan University. This study was designed according to qualitative research model and case study pattern was used. Students were given a questionnaire which was prepared in advance containing colourful photographs of 8 plants. Students were asked to answer questions about the characteristics of plants under each plant photograph. By analyzing the obtained data, a frequency table was created and by giving the frequency and percentages of answers of biology and geography students together created the opportunity of comparing them. When the obtained data are evaluated, it is seen that the recognition and awareness of plants of both the geography students and biology students are not at the expected level. In addition to developing the cognitive structures of the students about the plants in their environment, their environmental conscience and awareness needs to be increased.
