In this talk we will discuss some Turan-type results on graphs with a given circumference. Let W_{n,k,c} be the graph obtained from a clique K_{c-k+1} by adding n-(c-k+1) isolated vertices each joined to the same k vertices of the clique, and let f(n,k,c)=e(W_{n,k,c}). Improving the Erdos-Gallai theorem, Kopylov proved in 1977 that for c
