The investigation was carried out the protected rangeland of Kubrat district in northern Bulgaria. In each patch, ten 0.5 m × 0.5 m quadrats were randomly placed for sampling vegetation and measuring green and dry matter yields, plant coverage, botanical composition (Poaceae, Fabaceae, different botanical families, medicinal and aromatic plants ratios in different botanical families) in the south aspect of ungrazed pasture at full bloom stage of dominant species. Five dominant medicinal and aromatic plants [Paeonia peregrina Mill. (Fam. Paeoniaceae), Papaver rhoeas L. (Fam. Papaveraceae), Chamomilla recutita (L.) Rauschert. (Fam. Asteraceae), Sambucus ebulus L. (Fam.Caprifoliaceae), Artemisia absinthium L. (Fam. Asteraceae)] were identified. The green fodder yield, dry matter yield, plant coverage, Poaceaeratio, Fabaceae ratio and ratio of different botanical families, ratio of medicinal and aromatic plants in different botanical families at full bloom stage of dominant species in ungrazed pasture ranging from 30.13 t ha-1, 8.79 t ha-1, 96-98%, 70.12%, 19.78%, 10.1% and 4.77%, respectively.
