The database contains data on plants registered in the geobotanical descriptions of the territory of the Ulytsia River valley, which is part of the Desniansko-Starohutskyi National Nature Park (NNP). The materials were partially included in the project of creating the mentioned NNP and were used in the allocation of protected and recreational functional zones. The database contains data on the findings of 426 species of higher vascular plants and bryophytes.

Data Records

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 6,062 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.

Sampling Methods

The research was carried out by route methods using the traditional method of performing full geobotanical descriptions. In some areas of broad-leaved forests, geobotanical descriptions were carried out in the spring during the flowering of spring ephemeroids and during the main vegetation period. The set of geobotanical descriptions generally covers the main types of natural vegetation little changed by human activity, with the exception of aquatic vegetation.

Study Extent The dataset consists of records of plants according to geobotanical descriptions that were made prior to the creation of Desniansko-Starohutskyi National Nature Park in 1997-1999. The studied territory includes the forest massif on the right bank of the Ulytsia River to the bed of the Chern' River within the borders of Ukraine and the floodplains of these rivers between the villages of Ulytsia and Stara Huta (Shostkinsky District, Sums'ka Oblast', Ukraine). The research was carried out under the scientific supervision of Doctor of Science, Prof. T.L. Andrienko (M.H. Kholodny Institute of Botany, NASU). The author expresses his sincere gratitude to the co-authors of the laboratory headed by her: V.A. Onishchenko, O.I. Pryadko, R.I. Arap for comprehensive help and advice and to the NGO "Ukrainian Nature Conservation Group" for financial support.
Quality Control The author bears full responsibility for the quality of the data provided in the dataset.

Method step description:

  1. Conducting of field expeditions.
  2. Samplings of plans and mosses.
  3. Species identification.
  4. Georeferencing.
  5. Creating of the dataset according to Darwin Core standards.
