Abstract

The Medvednica mountain is situated north of Zagreb. In 1981, a part of Mount Medvednica, on area of 228.26 km2 was proclaimed a Naturel Park by the Nature Protection Act., and many of natural values that this mount occur are protected. This thesis present list of 27 invasive plant (IAS) taxa in Naturel park „Medvednica“, with families, life form and geographic origin. According to analyses, out of 14 families the majority (12 families) belong to the dicotyledones. The most numerous families are Asteraceae and Balsaminaceae. Life-form analysis shows that therophytes have the greatest share (44%). In the origin analysis IAS from the Americas predominated, followed by those from Asia and Africa. Total variability of IAS is explained by level of exploration with 21%. Altitude, length of paths, roads, and number of all species is explaining 44% of variability in IAS data.
