The dataset mainly presents records of common species of birds and some other animal species during the 2016-2023 years. The most of the data is from the Poltava region of Ukraine, but other regions were also investigated, namely Kyiv, Cherkasy, Chernivtsi, Zhytomyr and Odesa regions.
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 1,182 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.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

“Saving Biodiversity Data in Wartime” project aims to contribute to the protection and conservation of biological diversity in Ukraine during and after the war, by collecting, digitalizing and publishing the primary biodiversity data held by Ukrainian scientists and environmentalists in war-affected territories. The project is implemented by Oleksii Marushchak, 2023 Eastern Partnership Civil Society Fellow.
|Saving Biodiversity Data in Wartime
|“Saving Biodiversity Data in Wartime” project is funded by the European Union within its Eastern Partnership Civil Society Fellowship Programme.
The personnel involved in the project:
In the Poltava region, the data was collected over the year mainly in the vicinity of the city of Poltava, and in the floodplain of rivers Psel, Vorskla, and Sula. Most locations were visited several times in different periods around the year. All the registered species are quite easy to identify visually without the nesessity of using of special tools or capturing of the animals. georeferencing was made using Maps.ME online application for smarthphone.
|The dataset mainly presents records of common species of birds and some other animal species during the 2016-2023 years. The most of the data is from the Poltava region of Ukraine, but other regions were also investigated. The data from other regions is also presented. The goal of the publication of the dataset is to preserve observational data and provide an opportunity to use information about animal encounters for researchers and amateurs. The data is published as part of the project «Saving biodiversity data in wartime.” The study was also supported by the grant for young scientists of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine №34/02-2024(5)
|The collection of scientific material and its processing was carried out by qualified zoologist who worked in the region for a long time.
Method step description:
- Collection of field data in a field notebook.
- Species identification.
- Preparing of the dataset according to the Darwin Core standards.
