Abstract

Alases are unique grassland landscapes in Central Yacutia, their development influenced by extra-continental arid climate. Twenty three associations have been distinguished and described. These associations form an ecological series from steppe withFestuca lenensis andStipa krylovii through salt and swamp meadow (Hordeum brevisubulatum, Puccinellia tenuiflora, Alopecurus arundinaceus, Calamagrostis langsdorffii, Carex juncella) to swamp communities ofScolochloa festucacea, Glyceria triflora, Scirpus lacustris andTypha latifolia. The community complexes of specific elements of alas landscapes—baidjerakhs and bulgunnyakhs—are analysed.
