Recent expansion of capacities of the Tobolsk petrochemical factory has raised the question of extending the factory’s influence on the biota of the territories next to with South taiga ecosystems. Monitoring such influence has required the creation of an ecological track, covering various types of the South taiga woods, near the territory of an industrial site.
This article aims to describe the main forest communities on the track’s territory, distinguishing their correlation to the indigenous types of southern taiga forests, and the features of their aging and restorative shifts. Referencing the coordinates of the described wood types will allow further comparison of their states with our descriptions.
The authors have revealed fourteen associations different in forest stratification, developed growth rate of forest forming breeds, and rich in structure undergrowth. The analysis of specific structure of the higher vascular plants has shown that the grass layer on the territory of an ecological track contains 169 types relating to 50 families and 115 genera.
