Sampling Methods

The formation of the dataset was carried out as a result of field surveys of the territories designed for inclusion in the nature reserve fund of the Mykolaiv region. The dataset includes species of plants and some species of animals listed database of geobotanical descriptions of the vegetation of steppe biotopes of the Mykolaiv region, as well as data geolocated using iNaturalist web resource. At the same time, this dataset is currently the most complete summary of information on the distribution of many rare and endemic plants included in the Red Data Book of Ukraine, the Bern Convention and other nature protection lists within the territories proposed for the expansion of the Yelanets Steppe Nature Reserve, as well as information about the vegetation of the Chichiklia and Berezan river valleys, which were the "white spots" of biodiversity until now.

Study Extent The dataset shows the information of registrations of rare and common species of flora and fauna made in 2023 on the territories that are promissing for inclusion into the nature reserve fund of Mykolaiv region in order to expand it.
Quality Control The author is fully responsible for the quality of data and accuracy of georeferenced points showed in the dataset.

Method step description:

  1. Conducting of field surveys.
  2. Checking of the updated registrations in the iNaturalist web resource.
  3. Species/genera/subspecies identification.
  4. Georeferencing.
  5. Organizing of the dataset according to the Darwin Core standards.
