Sampling Methods

The research was carried out with the aim of mapping vegetation and studying the structure of habitats using the traditional method of performing full geobotanical descriptions. In some areas of broad-leaved forests, double observations were made during the flowering of spring ephemeroids and during the main vegetation period. In general, continuous mapping of the tract's forests was carried out.

Study Extent The dataset consists exclusively of registrations of higher vascular plants (Tracheophyta) collected in the period from 2011 to 2019. The investigated area includes a forest massif on a sandy terrace on the left bank of the Vorskla River between the villages of Klymentove and Lytovka (Okhtyrsky district, Sumy region). The research was carried out within the framework of scientific studying of the Hetman National Nature Park. The author is sincerely grateful to the NGO "Ukrainian Nature Conservation Group" for financial support.
Quality Control The author bears full responsibility for the quality of the data provided in the dataset.

Method step description:

  1. Conducting of field expeditions.
  2. Samplings of plants.
  3. Species identification.
  4. Georeferencing.
  5. Creating of the dataset according to Darwin Core standards.
