ABSTRACT
The paper about Croatian Adriatic islands Žut and Sit and their pertaining islets comprehends the analysis of basic geographic (geomorphologic, climatic, biogeographic, economic-geographic, anthropogeographic) characteristics of this part of Kornati insular group in the archipelago of Zadar. Special attention is paid to historical-geographical archival materials and to data about exploiting and colonization of these islands. Total land area makes 19.2 km2 (28.3% land surface of Kornati). Nowadays without permanent population, this insular group had significance of pasture, olive growing and fishing zone in millenary evaluation and exploitation, which was carried out by proprietary families from Zadar and, in the recent centuries, by islanders from Murter and other neighbouring islands. Analytical reference to geographic characteristics through time is specially important these days i.e. at the beginning of the 21st century, when the whole insular group of Kornati is being cadastrally and landowning redefined.
