Based on the major floristic and phytosociological study focusing on the Saronic islands, it is evident that the diversity of the flora of Aegina is relatively high, reflecting the variety of the geology, and reaches 794 species and subspecies. Most of the species are members of the flora of the wider region (Attica, Corinth, Argolis, other Saronic islands).
