Structural and functional organization of a larch phytocenosis in a postfire progressive succession in the north of Central Siberia



The author considers specific features of the postfire formation of a larch (Larix gmelinii) phytocenosis in Central Evenkia, the north of Central Siberia. Morphological parameters of trees, structure, height, growth, and biological productivity of the tree stand, shrub layer, live ground cover, and accumulation of detritus after progressive pyrogene succession are analyzed and discussed.
