The article deals with the problems of preserving the diversity of the plant world in the Pripyat Polesie (a natural region of the southern part of Belarus). It is shown that when compiling lists of vulnerable species, not only plants from the Red book of the Republic of Belarus should be taken into account, but also species that are protected at the international level, as well as those that grow on the borders of their area. Currently, there are 88 species that have a category of national conservation significance, and 80 taxa are included in the list of species of wild plants and fungi that need preventive protection in the Red book of the Republic of Belarus. A total of 225 species in the native flora are located on the borders of the areas, of which only 111 are officially protected. The international protected status has 61 species, which increases the sozological value of the studied flora. The category of probably extinct includes 29 species, the probability of their re-discovery cannot be completely excluded. The presented data, together with the General features of the flora and vegetation of the Belarusian Polesie, justify the feasibility of compiling a regional Red book.
