The vegetation of the north-eastern Adriatic island of Olib (26.13 km2) was studied in 2015. From a total of 99 phytosociological relevés, 33 floristically and ecologically distinctive vegetation communities were identified and described (30 associations and 3 stands) within 28 alliances, 27 orders and 23 vegetation classes. Altogether, 18 NATURA 2000 habitat types were recognized. The study revealed the great phytocoenotic diversity and the high biogeographical value of the study area.
