New plant records in Amur region.

Abstract

New data on the distribution of 12 vascular plant species are given. Nine species are reported as new records for Amur Region (Arctium minus (Hill) Bernh., Carduus acanthoides L., Sinapis arvensis L., Callitriche hermaphroditica L., Atriplex patens (Litv.) Iljin, Chenopodium virgatum Thunb., Thladiantha dubia Bunge, Cyperus difformis L., Leonurus cardiaca L.); 8 of them are new for Lower Zeya floristic province and 1 species is new for Daurian floristic province. New findings of Bolboschoenus planiculmis, Centaurea pseudomaculosa and Leucanthemum vulgare are cited. The increasing number of alien species and their naturalization may be related to a large-scale development of both industrial sites and tourism.
