Abstract. The publication deals with the results of floristic study in Natura 2000 protected zone BG0000211 „Tvardishka planina". The objects of investigation are forest habitats: 9110, 9130, 9150, 91G0, 9170, 9530, 9180, 91М0, 91Е0, 91АА. The floristic composition of the habitats, abundance of each species by Braun-Blanquet scale and plant relevѐs are presented. The assessment of nature conservation status is made applying the developed methodology under the project "Mapping and determining of the natural conservation status of the nature habitats and species – phase I" that was adopted by Ministry of Environment and Water. As a result of conducted inventory the conservation status of all habitats was assessed as unfavourable-unsatisfactory.
Key words: forest habitat, floristic composition, conservation status, protected zone.
