Abstract
Travnjaci prekrivaju velike površine diljem svijeta i imaju važnu ulogu u pohranjivanju ugljika, fiksiranju dušika i sprječavanju erozije tla te se koriste u različite svrhe. Na travnjacima dominiraju vrste iz porodice Poaceae, no u velikom broju pojavljuju se i vrste iz drugih porodica. Mnoge biljne vrste na travnjačkim površinama sadrže velike količine ugljikohidrata, lipida, eteričnih ulja, glikozida, saponina, vitamina, minerala i drugih ljekovitih tvari. Zbog antimikrobnih, antifungalnih, antioksidativnih i antitumorskih svojstva koriste se za liječenje u narodnoj medicini, ali su jednako važne u pronalaženju lijekova u borbi protiv brojnih bolesti današnjice. Budući da se veliki broj različitih ljekovitih biljnih vrsta i danas prikuplja na travnjačkim površinama, nužno je osigurati očuvanje ovih biološki raznolikih staništa.

Parallel abstract (English)
Grasslands cover large areas around the world and play an important role in carbon storage, nitrogen fixation and prevention of soil erosion, and are used for different purposes.Although the Poaceae is the most dominant family, large number of plant species from other families are also present in grassland communities. Some species contain a large amount of carbohydrates, lipids, essential oils, glycosides, saponins, alkaloids, vitamins, minerals and other medicinal substances. Due to their antimicrobial, antifungal, antioxidant and antitumor properties, these species are used in traditional medicine, but also have potential for finding new drugs to treat modern diseases. Large number of medicinal plant species are collected on grassland areas. Thus, it is necessary to ensure the preservation of these biologically diverse habitats.
