Abstract

The Republic of Croatia is rich endemic species, and among them we can find the endemic species of genus. According to the latest research there are five species of which some are strictly endemic, and some are endemic in wider sense. Strictly endemic is Iris adriatica Trinajstić ex Mitić which is spread throughout the coast and islands of middle Dalmatia, and natural hybrid Iris x rotscildi Degen which is registered on one locality on Velebit. Some species inhabit the whole territory of Croatia and some of the neighboring countries. In Slovenia we can find Iris croatica Horvat et Horvat M., on the north coast of the Adriatic sea from Italy to Velebit Iris illyrica Tomm, and Iris pseudopallida Trinajstić on the south coast of the Adriatic sea all the way to Albania. Some of this species are numerous and are not endangered, while some are very endangered due to habitat devastation. Alpinists and tourists also endanger them by picking. This paper exposes the short overview of the most important endemic species of Iris genus in Croatia.
