Plants of Slovenia

A number of 3192 plant species are recorded for Slovenia, after an extensive survey of fieldwork and literature (Jogan 2001). The highest floral diversity can be found in the south west of Slovenia.

The Julian Alps are for plants very interesting. Beside the large number of high mountain species (Fig 1), also the bulk of slovenian endemics are restricted to this area (Fig 2).

A group like the orchids are occuring over whole Slovenia (Fig 3). They can be mainly found in spring and for the mountains also during the summer. Their habitat varies from dry till wet meadows, which can be found everywhere.
