Sampling Methods

Recording and identification of vascular plants with using road-field methods.

Study Extent The reserve of local importance «Korsunskyi» is located on the territory of the Korsunsky Forestry in Khersondistrict in the Kozachelager sand arena, near the villages of Korsunka and Krynky. The reserve was established for the purpose of conservation and reproduction of wildlife. The territory of the reserve is classified as forests of nature conservation, scientific, historical and cultural purposes and performs environmental and aesthetic functions. The area is home to predominantly pine forests, which alternate with herbaceous meadow cenoses in the lower sandy arenas and psammophytic steppe areas.
Quality Control The identification of vascular plant species was 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.

Method step description:

  1. Field sampling.
  2. Recording and identification of vascular plants.
  3. Completing of checklist of vascular plant.
  4. Data post-processing according to the Darwin Core standards.
  5. Data checking and cleaning in OpenRefine.
