Plant life

The vegetation of the mountain slope is very interesting and rich. It is an apparent mixture of different floral elements. There are mixed oldest Mediterranean, Boreal and Central newer floral elements. Illyrian-dominated Mediterranean plants, while the share of Alpine plants is significantly reduced, so Biokovo in the plant-geographical terms should be included in a special Balkan-Apennine region, the Balkan character (according to Kušan, 1969).

It can be said that the vegetation on the entire surface of the mountain slope is degraded. The term "vegetation" or "flora" normally covers two components - the flora and vegetation. Vegetation is a collection of plant communities or phytocoenoses. These are legally built communities in relation to environmental factors and are reliable indicators of habitat conditions. Flora is a collection of all plant species of an area.

It is known that plants are the basis of biological diversity. They are the habitat of animals and a food source to animals and humans, so we can say that without plants, there is no survival. It is therefore extremely important that we get to know them so that we can better protect and preserve them.
