Influence of Gmelin larch trees on postfire restoration of forest communities in the permafrost zone of Central Siberia



This article shows the phytocoenotic role of individual postfire trees of the Gmelin larch under conditions of the permafrost zone of Central Siberia. On the basis of the vital state of the trees, the limits of their influence on the recovery of the species of the lower layers of phytocenosis are defined and the formation of the new stand generation is shown.
