Abstract

New alien species and alien species of rare occurrence in the flora of Khabarovsky Krai.

Abstract

The paper provides data on the distribution of 18 alien plant species in Khabarovsky Krai; out of which 4 species (Calceolaria pinnata, Lablab purpureus, Physostegia virginiana, Euphorbia marginata) are new to the Russian Far East and 9 species (Aegopodium podagraria, Barbarea arcuata, Caucalis platycarpos, Carduus nutans, Duchesnea indica, Euphorbia cyparissias, Ocimum basilicum, Phytolacca acinosa, Physocarpus opulifolius) are new to the Khabarovsky Krai. The author has found new locations of three species of rare occurrence (Chloris virgata, Perilla frutescens, Jacobaea ambracea), and two quickly distributing alien species, brought in the early 2000s (Parthenocissus inserta, Pilosella floribunda).
