Abstract

The problem of the progressive development of Ukrainian flora adventization, the relevance of issues concerning the inventory of adventitious species diversity and monitoring of their populations, as well as the investigation of phytoinvasions in forest phytocoenoses are analyzed in the article. According to the provisions of the Global and European Development Strategies on the need for control of invasion and the introduction of non-native adventitious species in natural and synantropized habitats (the process of neophitization) and the introduction of monitoring of their abundance and distribution, the investigation of contamination of forest phytocoenoses with non-native species of vascular plants (their abundance – coverage and participation in the vegetation composition, distribution within administrative regions and forest-steppe zone) was conducted. The methodological approaches to the identification of adventitious and highly-invasive species, the use of indices for forest flora adventization and modernization were tested for monitoring of invasions of non-native plant species to forest phytocoenoses. The subject of the research were first level monitoring plots (642 plots) located within the forest-steppe zone of Ukraine.
