The paper focuses on investigating the densities of different ecological trophic groups of soil microorganisms, cellulose decomposition rates, and respiration of cryogenic forest soils in the north of Central Siberia and those of the southern taiga subzone, including those affected by surface wildfires. Psychrotolerant bacteria and micromycetes were found to dominate these soil complexes. The biological activity of the upper soil horizon in the north appeared to be close to that in the south, although the growing season in the former area is shorter compared to the latter.
