  • T. V. Famelis


A technique for the evaluation of anthropogenic transformation of vegetative cover at the local, subregional, and regional levels is considered. It includes compilation of phytoecological maps based on the revealed spatial and temporal nonuniformity of vegetative cover and analysis of its relationship with the environment.

Key words

transformation of vegetation local and regional levels phytoecological map transformation indices
