Geographic Coverage

The dataset consists of records of vascular plants made on the territory of the Lower Sula National Nature Park within Cherkasy and Poltava administrative regions of Ukraine. These territories include areas along the valley of Sula River and its tributaries within the Lubenskyj (former Orzhitskyj) district, as well as the steppe territory in the vicinities of the village of Maloseletske that is called "Zalizna Baba" gulch.

Project Data

The results of the project will be a backbone for establishment of new protected areas and Emerald Network sites, as well as for development of management plans for already existing protected areas. As a result, we will prepare documents for all the important sites identified and provide them directly to the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Ukraine. Our gathered data on the occurrences of protected species will facilitate the establishment of new protected areas.

Sampling Methods

The materials were collected by the methods of inventory and identification of species in the field conditions (detailed by route, scoping of geobotanical descriptions on key plots near natural boundaries of phytocenoses). The species list is shown randomly, but in chronological order. Species are named according to S.L. Mosyakin and M.M. Fedoronchuk [2]. The indication of species' higher taxonomic ranks has been carried out pragmatically following the classification of flowering plants [1]. 1. Мосякін С.Л. Родини і порядки квіткових рослин флори України: прагматична класифікація та положення у філогенетичній системі // Український ботанічний журнал. 2013. Т. 70, №3. С. 289– 307. 2.
