Research of flora and vegetation of anthropogenic habitats has a history of more than 200 years in Slovakia.
In the paper, the research over the last 25 years (realized in the period 1991–2017, resp. since the establishment of the Slovak Republic, Central Europe) is reviewed. New data and knowledge of the anthropogenic habitats and their biodiversity (plants) are presented. They deal with the development in synanthropic terminology, taxonomy and biology of aliens in the last eight volumes of the Flora of Slovakia (published in the period 1992–2016), research into synanthropic flora, esp. rare and threatened weeds, new localities and distribution of aliens, plant invasions and invasive alien species, synanthropic vegetation and invasibility of habitats. Anthropogenic habitats comprise arable land, vineyards, orchards, energy plant plantations, old agrarian forms of relief, fallows, towns and villages, cemeteries, castle ruins, old walls, pits, heaps, waste
heaps, railway habitats, roadsides, river harbours, bait sites and clearings. Progress in theory, concepts, population-biological and biomass production research is evident from this survey.
