Ignition and fires have a negative impact on the environment and its natural components. The most difficult and long-term recovery occurs in the soil cover, as burns out surface fertile layer, which was formed over time. According to the quantity of the contents of enzymes in the soil samples selected in the study areas, we estimated the intensity of vital activity of soil microorganisms, and, consequently, the intensity and nature of the recovery process of the soil. The results obtained on the enzymatic activity of the soil of different natural zones after their ignition were compared with each other.
Keywords: enzymatic activity of soil, soil cover, fires, ignition, negative impact.
