The dataset include information about some occurrences from Lowe Dnipro region (Southern Ukraine) from expedtidions. Information include about 22 nature monuments, 1 geological monument of local importance, 1 landscape reserve of local importance, 1 ornitological monument, 3 park a monument of landscape gardening art. The nomenclature of the vascular plants in the dataset follows «Nomenclatural Checklist of vascular plants of Ukraine» (Mosyakin & Fedoronchuk 1999). Total list of species include 420 different taxas names and 819 occurrences.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 819 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

|Study Area Description||Lower Dnipro region.|
The personnel involved in the project:
Recording and identification of vascular plants and cryptogams with using road-field methods.
|Study Extent||The research was conducted in the Lower Dnipro region (Southern Ukraine), 40–100 m a.s.l. (Zamoryi1961), in the provinces Kherson and Mykolayiv (46.48–47.37° N, 32.00–33.97° E). The Lower Dnipro region is located in the West Pontic grass steppe zone of the Eastern European Plain (BOHN et al. 2000).|
|Quality Control||The identification of vascular plant and cryptogams were held with morphological methods at the field and in the Kherson State University Laboratory of Plant Ecology and Environmental Protection. Coordinates of records were checked using Google Earth service. Data cleaning using OpenRefine.|
