Net primary production of the grass and swamp ecosystems

Abstract

Paper presents estimates of above-ground, below-ground, and total production in grasslands, meadows and steppe of the forest-steppe and steppe regions, and production of moss peat ecosystems of the northern, middle, and southern taiga forests. Total production varies in grasslands from 520 to 6670 g/(m2 year) and depends on hydrothermal conditions and the regime of the use of herbage, in moss peat it varies from 360 to 1970 g/(m2 year) and is determined by the biology of predominant species, conditions of fluviomineral feeding and heat supply.
