  • notes   Slo.: prerasla repušica - Habitat: Former pasture, stony grassland overgrown with bushes; almost flat terrain, skeletal, calcareous ground; mostly sunny; elevation 245 m (800 feet); average precipitations ~ 1.000 mm/year, average temperature 12-13 deg C, (Sub)Mediterranean phytogeographical region. - Substratum: soil. - Comment: Smyrnium perfoliatum is an interesting plant with a conspicuous overall yellowish appearance and strangely shaped leaves, particularly the upper ones, which are almost round. The ground leaves look totally different being divided into three leaflets. The plant is a Mediterranean floral element. Yet is a quite rare on the island Krk. One can find it also in Central Europe, but as an introduced plant. It touches the Alps only in its most southwest tip. - Ref.: (1) M.A. Fischer, W. Adler, K.
