<em>Taraxacum koksaghyz</em> Rodin definitely is not an example of overcollecting in the past. A reply to S. Volis et al. (2009)
AbstractConclusions presented by VOLIS et al. , J. Appl. Bot. Food. Qual. 83, 60-63 (2009) are shown to be incorrect. VOLIS et al. consider Taraxacum koksaghyz as a rare species as a result of overcollecting in the past. It is shown in the present paper that VOLIS et al. explored the Kazakhstan localities in a wrong part of the season and not at the habitats belonging to the ecological optimum of the species. Taraxacum koksaghyz is documented here as a relatively common species at suitable habitats within its whole known range, a list of populations studied is given and the species is briefly characterized.
