Ogureeva G.N., Zhargalsaikhan L., Karimova T.Yu., Miklyaeva I.M. CHANGES OF BOTANICAL DIVERSITY OF MIXED AND SOD GRASS STEPPES OF EASTERN MONGOLIA IN 11 YEARS (2008-2018) // Arid ecosystems. 2019. V. 25. № 4 (81). P. 52-60. | PDF
We analyzed the dynamics of botanical diversity of mixed and sod grass plain steppes over 11 years from 2008 to 2018, using the materials of the bio-monitoring of vegetation cover on the Tumentsogt station, Eastern Mongolia. We analyzed the relations between the main parameters of plant communities (their species composition, richness and saturation, height and abundance, grass canopy density) and meteorological conditions (heat and water availability, quantity and distribution of precipitation during vegetation period).
Keywords: bio-monitoring, steppe fluctuations, botanical diversity, bioclimatic indices.
