This paper provides an overview of the floristic diversity of the forest-steppe complex of the "Boizhy" tract in the Prikalaus-Buivolinsky landscape. The description of the relief of the territory and its forms is given, the bedrocks, soil types, etc. are noted. Despite its phytodiversity, the territory is not studied botanically. For the first time, a description of the vegetation cover of flat areas, slopes, beams, pots with the corresponding floristic series is given. The main dominants of the tree and shrub layer, as well as species with a broad ecological valence, are indicated. On the territory of the study area, xerophilic and petrophilic groups were identified, which form the basis of the rarity flora of the tract.
