Dikareva T.V., Rumiantsev V.Yu., Soldatov M.S., Malkhazova S.M. PATTERNS OF DISTRIBUTION OF ALLERGENIC PLANTS IN THE PLAIN BIOMES OF RUSSIA // Arid Ecosystems. 2023. Vol. 29. № 3 (96). P. 57-67. | PDF
In this paper we consider the list of species of allergenic plants as well as the species diversity of those plants as a whole in plain regional biomes of Russia. Statistical analysis of correlation between number of allergenic plants in the regional biomes and climatic indices was carried out made. The schematic maps were compiled and analyzed. It can be assumed that allergenic plants flowering during spring dominate the biomes of broadleaved forests and forest steppe, whereas the number of allergenic species flowering during summer is higher in forest-steppe and steppe biomes. The closest connection was detected between the number of species flowering during summer and average annual temperatures. Comparatively close connection was detected between the total number of allergenic species and average annual temperatures. Nevertheless, connection between the total numbers of allergenic plants in the studied biomes and the biomes aridity appeared to be weak.
Keywords: allergenic plants, regional biomes, climatic factors, aridity, correlation analysis, cartographic analysis.
