The paper provides a list of 546 vascular plant taxa for which 855 new findings for the islands of the Šibenik archipelago (Kaprije, Krapanj, Murter, Obonjan, Prvić, Zlarin and Žirje) were recorded. Of the total number of new findings, 254 refer to 158 taxa which, in the area researched, grow either in cultivation or demonstrate the ability to subspontaneously spread out of the cultivated area. The previously published records of Echium vulgare, Oxalis deppei and Vicia cracca for the islands of Šibenik archipelago are based on a misidentification and actually refer to E. plantagineum, O. articulata and Vicia villosa ssp. varia. Therefore, E. vulgare, O. deppei and V. cracca have to be cancelled from the list of vascular plants occurring on the islands of Šibenik archipelago but E. plantagineum, O. articulata and Vicia villosa ssp. varia have to be included.

In this work a total of 507 taxa of vascular flora of the settlement of Tribunj and the nearby uninhabited islets of Logorun and Lukovnik were recorded, according to literature data and our filed research. The flora of Tribunj comprises 413 taxa, the flora of Lukovnik 197 taxa, and the flora of Logorun contains 163 vascular taxa. The most common families are Asteraceae s.l. (11.84%), Fabaceae (10. 06%) and Poaceae (10.06%). Therophytes are the predominant life form (44.97%), and according to chorological type Mediterranean plants prevail (42.21%). Over the whole of the research area 16 endemic, 14 threatened and 77 protected plants were recorded. Mediterranean plants are more frequent in the flora of the islets of Logorun (63.19%) and Lukovnik (55.33%) than in the flora of Tribunj (37.53%). In contrast, therophytes, cultivated and adventive plants as well as widespread plants are more frequent in the flora of Tribunj than in the flora of the researched islets. In the settlement of Tribunj 45 neophytes (10.9% of the settlement's flora) were registered, of which only the species Opuntia vulgaris was found on the islet of Lukovnik. On the islet of Logorun none of the taxa found were neophytes.

During 2004 and 2012 field research into the flora of the five uninhabited islets near Pakoštane, Dalmatia, South Croatia was carried out: Babuljaš, Veliki Školj, St Justina, Mali and Veliki Žavinac. Altogether, 257 vascular flora taxa were recorded. The flora of the islet Veliki Školj had 159 taxa, that of St Justina 118, Veliki Žavinac 115, Mali Žavinac 105 and Babuljaš 95.The largest number of taxa were found in the families Fabaceae (40 taxa; 15.56%), Poaceae (36 taxa;14.00%) and Asteraceae s.l. (31 taxa; 12.06%). Regarding life forms, therophytes prevailed (49.42%). The chorological spectrum highlights a clear dominance of Mediterranean taxa (50.19%). Their percentage contribution did not significantly differ among the islets (47.62-53.04%).There were four endemic, eight endangered and eight strictly protected plant taxa. No neophytes were found except Conyza sumatrensis which was observed on the islet of St Justina. © 2015, Croatian Natural History Museum. All rights reserved.

The flora of the town of Omiš was observed and researched during 2007 and 2008. In all, 870 species and subspecies were recorded. Among them, 614 grow indigenously or spread subsponta- neously out of cultivated conditions and 256 plant taxa occur only in culture. Cultivated taxa were not included in the analysis. The results of the flora analysis show a domination of therophytes (40.07%) and Mediterranean floral element plants (37.95%), strongly indicating the Mediterranean character of the flora of the researched area. The flora of the town of Omis presented in this study is Mediterranean, and in both quality and quantity is comparable to that of other cities on the Croatian littoral as well as of cities in Greece and Italy.

Zadar, one of the oldest towns in Croatia, is situated in North Dalmatia. A floristic survey performed between 2005 and 2008 included vascular native and non-native taxa with the ability to survive outside crops. A total of 926 vascular plant species and subspecies, from 470 genera and 107 families were recorded. The most common families are Asteraceae s.l. (12.42%), Poaceae (11.02%) and Fabaceae (9.83%), while therophytes (42.98%) are the most abundant life form. The predominant presentation of therophytes with respect to other life forms has been recognized as a feature common to both the Mediterranean climate and urban areas. The prevailing representation of Mediterranean plants in the flora of the city of Zadar (32.83%) demonstrates that this flora is, despite the exposure to durable anthropogenic influence, still developing under the prevailing influence of the Mediterranean climate conditions. A significant number of cultivated and adventitious taxa (19.22%) and widespread taxa (15.55%) in the flora of the city of Zadar is an indicator of human impact. Although the flora of the city of Zadar is an urban flora it comprises of 17 endemic, 27 threatened and 176 protected taxa.
