ID-310 :   Vegetation distribution and dynamics in the Arctic and Subarctic regions of the Russian Far East

Type

FIELDWORK

Research/Observation Title

Vegetation distribution and dynamics in the Arctic and Subarctic regions of the Russian Far East

Science Summary (common)

To study the pattern and mechanisms of secondary successin after eruption. Under the highly oceanic climate of the subarctic zone, vegetation becomes to shrubs and dwarf shrubs, which are physiognomically similar to Arctic tundra vegetation, but floristically quite different from Arctic tundra. The development process of dwarf shrubs and shrubs, and the differentiation mechanism from the Arctic tundra expect to be clalified to study the pattern and mechanisms of secondary succession after eruption.
