Summary: The reserves of weed flora and vegetation were established in European countries within the program of ecosystem protection. For comparison, in Croatia there was not made even the complet inventory of weed species. The detailed investigations were made only for row crop weeds, but only in continental part of Croatia. Other cereals were made out only sporadically till recently, when systematic surveys were made. According to reports (European Weed Research Society), we are the members of wich too, the investigations of weeds in Croatia, particularly from the phytogeographical point of view, were not sufficient at all. So, this project will have two main goals: phytogeographical distribution of each single weed species and plant communities, as well as the quantitative relationships as the basis of agroecosystem management.

Keywords: weeds, cereals, flora, vegetation, phytogeography, ecology, Croatia

Research goals: Goals: 1. floric maps for each single weed species on the ground net of UTM system 2. weed vegetation map for Croatia 3. analysis of the weed flora according to UTM quadrants 4. analysis of the total weed flora: a: floric elements b: life spectrum c: relative abundance 5. syntaxonomical divison of weed vegetation 6. ecophysiological characteristics of weeds Expected results: Qualitative and quantitative relationships within weed vegetation in cereals, within complete weed vegetation and whole vegetation of the investigated area as well as the knowledge about biology and ecology of weeds. It should be the basis of both the weed controle and protection of endangered species.
