Swamped Open Woodland and Mountain Tundra Vegetation in the Zeya State Nature Reserve
The results of the field geobotanical works conducted in the Zeya reserve (north of Amur region) in June 2013 are presented in the article. Geobotanical descriptions of swamped forest, shrub and mountain tundra communities on the upper part of the range Tukuringra on the altitude 1100–1400 m above the sea level have been carried out: larch forests with domination of Dahurian larch (Larix dahurica) and low pine (Pinus pumila), kedar- stlannik-alder open woodland with domination of low pine and shrub alder (Alnus fruticosa), subshrublichnes mountain tundra with domination of Arctous alpina, Rododendron parvifolium, Vaccinium uliginosum, Diapensia obovata etc. All chosen and described loci have the low level of disturbance due to the low anthropogenic load in the reserve. These loci can be a base ground for monitoring of biota in changing climatic conditions. This is especially important for the loci located within the protected areas.
Key words: swamped open woodland, mountain tundra, monitoring, Zeya State Nature Reserve, geobotany
