Abstract

The research of the native and decorative flora of the island of St. Klement (Pakleni archipelago) was carried out during 2007, 2008 and 2009. The total flora is comprised nowdays of 590 taxa from 346 genera and 102 families. Field research confirmed finding of 93 taxa, and reported 432 new taxa, whereof 168 belonging to native and 264 to decorative flora. The most abundant families in the native flora are Fabaceae (11,66 %), Poaceae (10,74 %) and Asteraceae (5,83 %), while the most abundant ones in the decorative flora are Arecaceae (19,32 %), Agavaceae (16,67 %) Cactaceae (7,26 %) and Zamiaceae (5,30 %). The most abundant life-forms in the native flora are therophytes (42,33 %), hemicryptophytes (23,93 %) and geophytes (12,27 %). Dominant plants in the total flora are cultivated and adventive plants (45,93 %), but if only native species are taken into account, the most dominant becomes the Mediterranean chorological element (57,36 %). The research recorded 7 endemic taxa and 29 taxa noted in the Red Book of Vascular Flora of Croatia. Moreover, 66 native and 27 foreign wild taxa are protected according to The 2005 Nature Protection Act. For the purpose of comparing the richness of species from the power function model (Arrhenius equation) z-value, as well as α – indices of diversity were calculated.
