This dataset comprises 111 occurrences of 111 species of vascular plants. The projected park, which serves as a monument of landscape architecture, holds significant zoological value. Within its boundaries, we have identified five species of protected vascular plants, among which four are listed in the Red Book of Ukraine (Allium savranicum, Alyssum savranicum, Stipa borysthenica, Ornithogalum boucheanum), and one species is listed in the Red List of Mykolaiv region (Jurinea paczoskiana). Considering the significance of the "Park of the Mykolaiv Astronomical Observatory" area for preserving phytodiversity, we propose the creation of a a monument of landscape architecture in this location. The Mykolayiv Astronomical Observatory is a cultural property of national level, the oldest naval observatory in south-eastern Europe. It was founded in 1821 by the Commander-in-chief of the Black Sea Fleet Admiral O.S. Greyg. The Observatory was built to the design of the Chief Architect of the Black Sea Admiralty F.I.Wunsch. Its ensemble consists of the Main Observatory Building built in the style of Classicism in 182 1-1 829, astronomic pavilions of the early 20-th c. where historic astronomic instruments and other museum exhibits are kept. There are also three modem pavilions with working telescopes used for research and observations, outbuildings and service premises for scientific laboratories and management functions and needs, housing of 4 buildings, as well as historic and cultural park landscape. The total area of the ensemble is 7,l hectares including 2,l hectares of built-up area. Mykolaiv Observatory is one of the oldest observatories in Eastern Europe. It was founded in 1821 as a Naval Observatory. In 1912, it became Nikolaev department of the Main (Pulkovo) Astronomical Observatory (MAO). In 1935, it was included in the network of scientific institutes of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR as Nikolaev department of MAO. In 1992, the observatory became an independent research institution in Ukraine, and it has become the Research Institute "Mykolaiv Astronomical Observatory" (RI "MAO") since 2002. At present the RI "MAO" is subordinated to the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. The Observatory is located in the central part of Mykolaiv at an altitude of 52m above sea level. The geographic coordinates are longitude 31o58' E, and latitude 46o58' N. Mykolaiv observatory was included in the Tentative list of UNESCO of the World Heritage Sites from Ukraine (Tentative list № 5116, Tentative list № 5267).

Métodos de Amostragem

Recording and identification of vascular plants with using road-field methods. The abundance of each species on each ancient settlement was assessed using a 5-point scale: 1 – rare, 2 - occasional, 3 – frequent, 4 - common, 5 – abundant species.

Área de Estudo The research focused on an area called "Park of the Mykolaiv Astronomical Observatory," covering approximately 7.8 hectares in Mykolaiv, Mykolaiv region, Ukraine.
Controle de Qualidade The identification of vascular plant species was held with morphological methods at the field. Coordinates of records were checked using Google Earth service and GIS. Data cleaning using OpenRefine.

Descrição dos passos do método:

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