17 The decrease in biota diversity caused by human activity is able to affect ecosystem functions on both local and global scales [1]. The main reasons for a presenttday increase in the species extinction rate are the loss, fragmentation, and decreased quality of habb itats [2]. Pollution is one of the factors resulting in the appearance of areas that are(More)
The state of tree and ground vegetation layers in spruce-fir forests around the Middle Ural Copper Smelter (Revda, Sverdlovsk oblast) has been repeatedly evaluated in 25 permanent sampling plots at 5- to 10-year intervals (1989–2013). The results have been used to characterize the dynamics of plant communities in the period of reduction of emissions from(More)
302 The recent reduction of emissions from industrial enterprises to the atmosphere occurring in many countries motivates studies of natural ecosystem recovery. They are important both theoretically, with regard to resilience mechanisms, and practically, with regard to proper management of natural resources. However, the investigation of processes involved(More)
Climate warming is shifting the elevational boundary between forests and tundra upwards, but the related belowground responses are poorly understood. In the pristine South and Polar Urals with shifts of the treeline ecotone documented by historical photographs, we investigated fine root dynamics and production of extramatrical mycorrhizal mycelia (EMM)(More)
The effect of temperature and soil contamination by fluorides on the early stages of the growth and development of narrowleaf hawksbeard plants from polluted and nonpolluted habitats has been studied. The character and degree of manifestation of the combined effects of pollution and temperature, as well as the variations in the direction of response(More)
