Abstract: A research has been conducted of the flora and vegetation of three protected natural areas, located in the Sitovo municipality, district of Silistra. As a result of the research, 38 families, 63 genera and 67 species of vascular plants have been established in the “Garvanski mires” protected natural area. In the natural protected area “Gornata koria” 27 families, 46 genera and 46 species of vascular plants have been established and 15 families, 36 genera and 39 species have been established in the protected natural landmark “Ostrata kanara”. Among these established plants, there are several species with conservation statuses – cryitically endangered (CR) Verbascum dieckianum Borbas & Degen, endangered (EN) Nymphaea alba L., Nuphar lutea (L.) Sibth. & Sm., Salvinia natans (L.) All., Nymphoides peltata (S. G. Gmel.) Kuntze, Galanthus elwesii Hook fil. and vulnerable (VU) Leucojum aestivum L. Also, two species included in the Bern Convention were found – Salvinia natans (L.) All., and the data deficient (DD) Typha schuttleworthii Koch & Sond. Furthermore, several species protected under the law for biodiversity have also been found – Verbascum dieckianum Borbas & Degen, Nuphar lutea (L.) Sm., Nymphaea alba L., Nymphoides peltata (S.G.Gmel.) Kuntze, Galanthus elwesii Hook fil. and Salvinia natans (L.) All. (Petrova and Vladimirov, 2009).
