Other projects:

  • Species list of plants and lichens of Russia for Turboveg for Windows. Anton Korablev, Nadezhda Liksakova, Denis Mirin, Dmitry Oreshkin, Peter Efimov. The species list based upon the database of the Russian website Plantarium, which contains a species atlas and illustrated an online Handbook of plants and lichens. The new species list is currently the most comprehensive in Turboveg format for Russia. There are 84 805 species and subspecies taxa in the list, 37 760 (44.7 %) that are accepted, while the others are synonyms.
  • The Kamchatka Peninsula plant traits database. Custodian: Anton Korablev. It is a renewing database of categorical and continuous traits of vascular plants and some traits of mosses and lichens of essentially volcanic habitats in Kamchatka. By this time, 321 vascular, 176 moss, and 231 lichen species were included in the database. For the most vascular, 21 traits are assessed including Serebryakov’s life form, architecture features of plants, specific leaf area (SLA), leaf area (LA), and dry seed mass, etc. If you are interested in the data please contact Anton Korablev by e-mail.
  • European Russia vegetation plot database. The main custodians: Anton Korablev, Valentina Neshataeva, Nadezhda Liksakova. The database is based on the releves data collected by the staff of the former Laboratory of Forest Zone Vegetation in 1980–2000. Data on forest and meadow vegetation from the Russian North-West and Kirovskaya Oblast count more than 3000 releves. If you are interested in the data please contact Anton Korablev by e-mail.
