The methodic of overall calculation of the resources of medicinal plants demands great expenses of time and money. For the express-evaluation of the resources of some medicinal plants of the Odesa region a method of key plots by Krylova I. A. (1989) was applied. It allows to evaluate the row material productivity of certain medicinal herb in it’s typical phytocenoses by the plant’s phytocenotic range.

During the summer of 2005 and 2006 the specific structure of the steppe weed vegetation in sev­eral communities on watershed plateaus and ravine slopes along the estuary shores in the three districts on the south of the Odesa region was analyzed. Productive cenopopulations of the following medicinal plants were found: Echinops ruthenicus M. Bieb. (phytocenotic range — 3 points), Helichrisum arenarium (L.) Moench. (1 — 3 points), Thymus dimorphus Klok. et Shost. (2 — 3 points), Artemisia absintium L. (3 points), Melilotus officinalis (L.) Pall. (3 points) and others. These species can be considered a potential source of plant row materials in areas of the steppe weed vegetation. Such data are obligatory to be reflected in corresponding materials for the organization of land exploitation.
