The Pelješac Peninsula (355 km2) is located in the south-eastern part of the Croatian Adriatic coast and characterised by considerable variations in types of vegetation. As a result of intensive floristic and vegetational research on the Pelješac Peninsula between 1994 and 1999, 64 hitherto unrecorded taxa were identified. A further 43 were identified from existing specimens in the Herbarium of the Lokrum Botanic Garden. The total number of new taxa for this area is thus 107, which brings the total number of vascular flora species for it to more than 1100.
