The database includes records of 211 spider species in 25 families collected in the "Dvorichanskyi" National Nature Park and its vicinity. The park was created for the conservation of chalk grasslands and the landscape complexity of northeastern Ukraine. It hosts chalky hills at various stages of grassland succession, gullies with shrubs and steppe-like meadows, floodplain meadows, and an oak forest on the right high riverbank; a floodplain forest and a narrow strip of wetlands neighbor the park. The sandy river terrace is planted with pine trees. Chalky hills stretch along the Oskil river making a mosaic of specific calcareous vegetation. Natural habitats are surrounded by agricultural lands. Additional records representing new species of spiders registered in the study area was added on 17 January 2023.

Méthodes d'échantillonnage

A line of ten traps at a distance of 10 m was established at each study plot: top of slope covered with forb-fescue-feather grass steppe, bare chalky slope with sparse calcareous vegetation, bottom of slope, bordering a floodplain meadow, gully bottom with shrubs and dry/mesic steppe-like meadow, and a floodplain meadow on the edge of riverside arboreal vegetation. Traps were checked monthly from May to October. Similar sampling protocol was used in 2021 for investigating an oak forest and adjacent habitats (old abandoned field with steppe vegetation, chalky slope and gullies). Sweep netting was conducted in the same habitats, tree samples of 25 double sweeps per plot. Since chalk grasslands are patched communities, we sampled chalky hills along the river to determine their specificity and conservation value. Hand collecting during the study period contributed to the fauna inventory of the area in hand. Geographical locations were indicated by GPS-navigator in decimal degrees according to the WGS 84 system. The nomenclature follows the World Spider Catalogue (WSC, 2022).

Etendue de l'étude Spiders were collected by hand, by pitfall trapping, and by sweep netting. The main material was obtained in 2014-2016 from a monitoring site representing typical grassland habitats of the study area. I cooperated with Volodymyr Kletionkin (Dvorichanskyi NNP) and Viktoria Terekhova (V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Dvorichanskyi NNP), Ukraine, who contributed to collection of the material. This dataset was prepared and published with the help of the Olin gGmbH foundation to preserve data on the biodiversity of Ukraine obtained by the Ukrainian scientists, who were forced to leave their homeland due to the war (Russia's invasion of Ukraine). Olin gGmbH is a funding organization for environmental protection and conservation that supports environmental and sociopolitical organizations.
