The dataset include information about flora of 3 redoubts in Mykolaiv region. To the south of the center of Mykolaiv, on the right bank of the Bug Estuary locates three old redoubts with a total area of 12.11 hectares. The fortification system of the Mykolaiv region, consisting of ancient reduts, was created during the Crimean War to solve the problem of city defense. One of the best architects of the time, the famous engineer Eduard Totleben, was responsible for their construction (Waiting for War, 2022). The steppe terrain of the Mykolaiv region served as the site for the creation of defensive structures, and in order to keep the soil in place, the surface of the fortifications was covered with steppe turf at that time. This technique allowed builders to create more stable and durable structures, preventing them from weathering and washing away during precipitation and strong winds. In addition, separate ammunition storage areas were built at each such defense structure, so there was always a sufficient number of guns, a powder magazine, barracks, and everything necessary for people's life inside. The construction of the fortifications dates back to 1853-1856. Mykolaiv reduts are objects of cultural heritage of Ukraine. These structures are of great historical importance and attract not only tourists but also researchers of various fields. The total list of flora include 152 species. The projected botanical nature monument of local importance "Reduty" (“Redoubts” in English) has a high sozological value of vegetation and biotopes. In particular, two Red Data Book species have been identified, Stipa capillata and Stipa lessingiana. On the territory of the redoubts, there is a community of the Stipeta capillatae formation, which is included in the Green Book of Ukraine. There is also a rare habitat of steppes: biotope included in Resolution 4 of the Bern Convention (E1.2 Perennial herbaceous calcite communities and steppes) and included in the European Red List of Habitats (E1.2b Dry continental steppes). The nomenclature of the dataset follows “Nomenclatural Checklist of vascular plants of Ukraine” (Mosyakin & Fedoronchuk 1999) with minor edits.
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 220 records.
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.

|Title||Natural potential in community plans of the post-war Mykolaiv region|
|Study Area Description||Mykolaiv region.|
Recording and identification of vascular plants with using road-field methods.
|Study Extent||The territory of the projected nature monument "Redoubty" consists of three separate areas of communal land located within Mykolaiv oblast, including: - 7.42 hectares of Radsadivka community; - 3.75 hectares of Radsadivka community; - 0.94 hectares Mala Korenykha, Zavodivskyi district, Mykolaiv city community.|
|Quality Control||Some specimens of the vascular plants were collected as herbarium for determination and verification after the fieldwork in Kherson State University Laboratory of Plant Ecology and Environmental Protection. After digitizing the data, we harmonised the taxonomic information according to the nomenclature sources: for vascular plants - Nomenclatural Checklist of vascular plants of Ukraine (Mosyakin & Fedoronchuk 1999),. Then we used GBIF Backbone Taxonomy (GBIF species matching tool: https://www.gbif.org/tools/species-lookup) for the taxonomic check and implemented minor corrections of species names regarding misprints and problematic taxa to avoid misinterpretation. We additionally checked and verified the using OpenRefine (https://openrefine.org/), R (R Core Team 2022) and QGIS 3.22 (https://qgis.org) for quality control.|
