Flora of the south Dalmatian island of Mljet has been relatively well investigated, with 751 vascular plant taxa recorded up to this research. During floristic research on the island in June, August and October of 2008 a total of 77 new plant taxa were recorded. Therefore, the entire flora of the island of Mljet now consists of 828 vascular plant taxa. Out of newly recorded taxa, 10 are cultivated while six are considered to be invasive. Three taxa are strictly protected and 12 taxa are protected by law. Three taxa are Near Threatened (NT), two are categorized as Least Concern (LC) and other two are Data Deficient (DD).
