- Trebeshina Mountain is located in Southern Albania it represent an important ecosystem particularly for its community that use its resources. Few previous studies draw attention on the importance of the knowledge of floristic diversity of vascular plants grown in this area. In this study we aimed to provide the first large scale data on floristic composition of the Trebeshina Mountain, to construct a database of species and evaluate their biological form, floristic spectra, flowering period and their conservation status. There were identified 63 families belonging to 211 genera, in high dominance were species of Asteraceae family. The life forms identified in the flora of Trebeshina Mt. showed the type H > G > Ph > T > Ch while the most of the species were of Mediterranean strict type, flowering in the period between end of spring and summer. Moreover, out of plant species in Trebeshina Mt. were identified 21 threatened species, included in the Red List of Albania, drawing attention to their further conservation. The provided data would contribute to increase knowledge about the area and ensuring sustainable use of its floristic diversity.
