Geographic Coverage

The dataset covers the territory of Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Mykolaiv and Kirovohrad administrative regions of Ukraine. The survey was conducted within the natural complexes of the Rightcoastal steppe of the Dnieper region, the basins of the rivers Mokra Sura, Saksahan, Domotkan, Samotkan, Omelnyk, Mertvovod and the Dnieper gulch system. The data from Siverskyi Donets (Donetsk region) is also included.

Sampling Methods

The largest number of routes was carried out in the period from the first half of March to the end of October, in general, the research covered the entire year. The natural complexes of the Right-bank steppe of the Dnieper region, the basins of the rivers Mokra Sura, Domotkan, Samotkan, Omelnyk, Saksahan, and the Dnieper gulch system were examined. Also, in August 2021, research was conducted in the branch of the Ukrainian Steppe Nature Reserve "Chalk Flora", in August 2023 - in the regional landscape park Granit-Steppe Pobuzhzhia. When discovering the locality of a rare plant species, photographs were taken and geolocation of the point was carried out using a GPS navigator. The names of plant species are given according to "Vascular plants of Ukraine". A nomenclatural checklist, with some modern changes. Findings are listed in chronological order of description.

Study Extent The research was carried out during route surveys in the period from 2014 to 2024 in the territory of the Kamianskyi district of the Dnipropetrovsk region. Some records from Donetsk region (2014) and Kirovohrad and Mykolaiv regions are included into the dataset as well.
