The list of species of allergenic and poisonous plants in arid and semiarid biomes of Russia is under consideration in the paper. The species diversity of allergenic and poisonous plants as a whole is considered. Statistical analysis of correlation between number of allergenic and poisonous plants species in the regional biomes and climatic indices has been made. The sketch maps have been done and their analysis has been made. It can be assumed that number of allergenic and poisonous plants in certain biome is correlated with the total number of species in that biome, meanwhile it is conditioned by geographical position that is linked with annual temperature and precipitation in the region. The closest connection is detected between the number of allergenic and poisonous plants species and average annual temperatures. Comparatively close connection is detected between number of species and average annual precipitation. Nevertheless, connection of total number of allergenic and poisonous plants in biomes with their aridity appeared to be weak.
Keywords: allergenic and poisonous plants, arid and semiarid biomes, climatic indices, correlation analysis.
