Abstract:
Albania is a south-western Balkan country, strategically positioned on the Adriatic and Ionian Sea inside the Mediterranean Sea. It belongs in developing countries. The total area is c.a. 28,748 km2 (97.7% land and 2.3% water). Albania is characterized for its biological diversity and abundance of contrasting ecosystems and habitats. More than 60% of the area is covered by forests, pastures and natural vegetation. Nowadays important reforms are happening on the forestry sector in terms of decentralization and ownership of forest administration from the state to local government (municipalities), in order to fulfill the strategy for a sustainable management of natural resources and poverty eradication. To do successfully that it is very important to inventory and establish a database of natural resources and services at municipality level. Legally, inventory of medicinal plant must to be repeated each ten years, but this is not respected strictly since 1988 because high cost and time consuming. The establishment of an innovative method, for the inventory aromatic and medicinal plants (AMP), of high effectiveness and less time consuming, is the main focus of this paper. There are using for this purpose remote sensing techniques and phytosociological principles (Braun Blanquet sensu strictu)
