Abstract

Phytodiversity of urban specially protected natural areas (SPNA) was studied using the city of Sevastopol (Crimean Peninsula) as a case study with specific focus on the Maximov’s Dacha Natural Park (83.9 hectares) (SPNA) situated in the Khomutova ravine on the site of the former estate. The levels of floristic and phytocenotic diversity were assessed using standard methods of floristic and geobotanical descriptions. It appears that the Maximov’s Dacha Natural Park has a high level of floristic diversity — 520 species and subspecies from 78 families. The coenotic diversity of the park is formed by associations of forest, steppe, meadow, forest-steppe, shrub, aquatic, and anthropogenically altered communities. The human impact resulted in the formation of habitat diversity promoting floristic diversity of this SPNA.
