Cheklist of the regional botanical reserve includes 388 taxa names of vascular plants are revealed (386 species and 2 subspecies). The botanical reserve of local importance «Yakovlivskyi» was created on the initiative and on the materials of Professor M.F. Boyko. The decision on its creation was made by the Mykolaiv Regional Council on 16.12.1987. The nomenclature of the vascular plants in the dataset follows “Nomenclatural Checklist of vascular plants of Ukraine” (Mosyakin & Fedoronchuk 1999). The botanical reserve of local importance «Yakovlivskyi» has a significant sozological value. In particular, there grows a number of plant species that are protected according to different Red Lists, or several at the same time. The World Red List includes Astragalus pallescens M.Bieb., Dianthus lanceolatus Steven ex Rchb., Linaria biebersteinii Besser; European Red List - Phlomis hybrida Zelen. and Vincetoxicum intermedium Taliev; Red Data Book of Ukraine - Crocus reticulatus Steven ex Adams, Caragana scythica (Kom.) Pojark, Chamaecytisus graniticus (Rehman) Rothm., Cymbochasma borysthenica (Pall. ex Schlecht.) Klokov & Zoz, Elytrigia stipifolia (Czern. ex Nevski) Nevski, Gymnospermium odessanum (DC.) Takht, Stipa pulcherrima K.Koch, Stipa ucrainica P.Smirn., Tulipa biebersteiniana Schult. & Schult.f. (as Tulipa hypanica Klokov & Zoz), Tulipa schrenkii Regel.

Sampling Methods

Recording and identification of vascular plants with using road-field methods.

Study Extent It is located on an area of 35 hectares in the vicinity of the village Yakovlivka, Bereznehuvata district, Mykolaiv region. The reserve covers the terrace area and elements of the ravine-beam system of the lower reaches of the Visun River at its confluence with the Ingulets River. The reserve consists of three ravines - Kalinindorfska, Yakovlivska and Zhukova and a section of the terrace of the river Visun between the last two. In the reserve, the vegetation cover of steppes and limestone outcrops of the strip of fescue-feather grass steppes is well preserved.
Quality Control The identification of vascular plant species was held with morphological methods at the field and in the Kherson State University Laboratory of Plant Ecology and Environmental Protection. Coordinates of records were checked using Google Earth service. Data cleaning using OpenRefine.

Method step description:

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