Project Data

The results of the project will be a backbone for establishment of new protected areas and Emerald Network sites, as well as for development of management plans for already existing protected areas. As a result, we will prepare documents for all the important sites identified and provide them directly to the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Ukraine. Our gathered data on the occurrences of protected species will facilitate the establishment of new protected areas.

Sampling Methods

We collected 214 releves of the natural vegetation of various types: dry, mesic and wet grasslands, rocky outcrops, shrubs, forests, wetlands and aquatic vegetation. The plot size was 16 m2 (4×4 m) for grasslands, 100 m2 (10×10) for forests, 25 m2 (5×5) for shrubs, at least 10 m2 for rocks depending on the aspect and steepness of the slope.

Study Extent We express our gratitude to Andriy Babytskyi for help with organization of expedition trip; Denis Davydov for identifying some species; to Armed Forces of Ukraine - for courage, protection from the aggressor and the opportunity to collect biodiversity data even during the war.
Quality Control The authors are fully responsible for the quality of data provided within the dataset.

Method step description:

  1. Preliminary designation of the study sites and plots.
  2. Field expeditions to the study sites.
  3. Conduction of a field research with vegetation releves.
  4. Collecting samples for herbarium.
  5. Collecting of photo material.
  6. Species identification.
  7. Georeferencing.
  8. Organizing of the dataset according to Darwin Core standards.
