Abstract

The insular mounts and some maritime Dinaric Alps at E. Adriatic present a complete Mediterranean altitudinal zonation, from the apical Acromediterranean up to warmest Inframediterranean belts. A correlated submarine horizontal zonation from Thermo-to Submediterranean benthic vegetation exists also in Adriatic bottoms. Four different types of coastal zonations are registered: widespread mesic of E. Adriatic, xeric one in dry pelagic isles, humid one in SE. coast, and a special stormy one in NE. coast exposed to Bora. The warm intra-montane valleys, and inland dolomitic and ophiolitic mounts present also the relict Mediterranoide ecozonations. The giant kilometric megacliffs of abrupt maritime mountains have a parallel independent zonation of specific rockbush.
