Sampling Methods

The location of the species was recorded during the establishment of the site for geobotanical description. Geotagging was done using a GPS navigator.

Study Extent The research was conducted in the spring-summer period (May-August) from 2013 to 2020. The territory of the valleys of the Krasna river and its tributaries - Kobylka, Mechetna, Duvanka within the Kreminskyj, Svativskyj, Troitskyj districts of Luhansk region, as well as the valley of the Aidar river in the middle course from Novopskov to Starobilsk were surveyed by reconnaissance and detailed route method. In some expeditions such scientists as Poliovyj Ye. V. and Pavlenko-Barysheva V. S. participated. This dataset was prepared (correctly organized according to Darwin Core standards) and published with the help of the project "Preservation of data on biodiversity of Ukraine during the Russian occupation" funded by "Documenting Ukraine" initiative. The initiative is financed by the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna (
Quality Control The authors are fully responsible for the quality of data provided within the dataset.

Method step description:

  1. Conducting of field expedition on previousely set routes and areas.
  2. Organizing of creation of geobotanical description.
  3. Georeferencing with the help of GPS device.
  4. Species identification.
  5. Organizing of the dataset with the use of Turboveg software.
