The dataset focuses on the biodiversity of old parks created in the 18th and 20th centuries and old forests that have survived to the present day. For the first time, the complete species lists of the vascular plants (dendroflora and herbaceous plants) in the 4 old natural forests near Kuryachi Lozy, Kuripchino (Mimrykov Forest) and on the Kinburn Peninsula (Volyzhyn Forest, Komendantske), for 16 artificial forests - Volodymyrivska Dacha, Dubova Balka, Katerynka, Korabelne, Labirynt, Vasyleva Pasika and 9 parks in Voznesensk (Maryin Gay), Kuryachi Lozy (Pidgirsky Park), Mostove (Erdeli Park), Pervomaysk (Druzhby Narodiv Park), Bratske (Zhyvkovich Park), Svyatomykolayivka (Staryi Park), Shaslyve (Tropinykh Park), Mykolayiv (Lisky). The species composition of their dendroflora (138 species) and herbaceous plants (633 species), mosses (50 species) and lichens with lichenicolous fungi (126 species) has been covered for the first time. Particular attention is paid to the inventory of old trees that grow in the Mykolaev region. For 126 old trees, information is provided on cores taken from them with a Pressler drill, which show the age of these trees. 142 dendronims of old trees with main its characters in Mykolayiv region are provided.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 4,604 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

The data mobilisation supported as part of the project "Natural potential in community plans of the post-war Mykolaiv region", with the support of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ukraine. The research were sponsored by Mykolayiv Regional Council project "Inventory of ancient parks and trees of the Mykolayiv region" (2020-2021) and data prepation by the NCN scholarship programme for Ukrainian students and young researchers (N.S.nr 2021/01/4/NZ9/00078) in collaboration with University of Warsaw.

Recording and identification of vascular plants using roadside methods Tree diameters were measured at a height of 1 m 30 cm using a tape measure. Tree height was determined using a handheld height meter. The ages of 126 trees were determined based on cores. To obtain cores, we used Pressler's hardwood and softwood borers. The cambial age of trees in 2018 was determined according to (Sweingruber, 1996). The age was determined as the arithmetic mean of several estimated tree ages from different cores. Unfortunately, not all trees could be analyzed by drilling, so the age of such old trees was determined from growth tables with statistical significance. We also used historical data related to the time of planting, and data on the growth rate in thickness.
