The analysis of bacterial complexes, including the number, taxonomic composition, physiological state, and proportion of ecological trophic groups was performed in a high moorland related to different elements of the microrelief. The abundance of bacteria, their ability for hydrolysis of polymers and the share of r-strategists were found to be higher in the sphagnum hillocks than on the flat surfaces. The total prokaryote biomass was 4 times greater in the sphagnum samples from microhighs (hillocks). On these elements of the microrelief, the density of actinomycetal mycelium was higher. Bacteria of the hydrolytic complex (Cytophaga and Chitinophaga genera) were found only in microhigh samples.
