Cities and their surroundings usually contain habitats modelled by variously intensive human activities. The spread of open landscape species, especially in the suburbs, is an important factor determining the biodiversity of these localities. This work summarizes approximately five years of monitoring of endangered plant species, especially in the northern and eastern part of the Moravian metropolis Brno and its surroundings. We recorded several rare endangered species in the monitored part of Brno, for example Astragalus danicus, Corallorhiza trifida, Equisetum ramosissimum or Phelipanche purpurea. In addition to locations of the recorded finds and a description of the sites of the finds, we also formulate management recommendations aimed at supporting species of interest.
