- The study aims the investigation of floristic diversity of species of Asteraceae family in Trebeshina Mt. and the estimation of their ecological optima. This mountain is located in Southern Albania and it belongs to a very important Albanian Mountain Range Trebeshine-Dhembel-Nemercke. A checklist of 40 Asteraceae species from 24 genera, were identified and presented with an analysis of their flora elements. The results provides in addition an important insight in regard of the endemic (10%), medicinal (27.5%) and endangered (12.5%) Asteraceae species richness in this area, which will directly contribute to the future conservation practices. Here in, we provide the first dataset of Ellenberg ecological optima of Asteraceae species of the Trebeshina Mt considering seven factors, light, temperature, continentality, soil reaction, moisture, and nutrient.
