  • Impact of global climate change on ecosystem functions of African
    • Authors: A. I. Kurbatova; A. M. Tarko; E. V. Kozlova
      Pages: 217 - 223
      Abstract: Based on a global spatial mathematical model of the global carbon cycle in the biosphere, the change in environmental parameters caused by carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion, deforestation, and erosion in African countries are calculated. The impact of deforestation and soil erosion due to inappropriate land use on climate change for African countries is calculated up to 2060.

  • Ecological intercomponent relationships in the natural solonetzic soil
           complex of the Northern Sarpinskaya Plain (Kalmykia Republic)
    • Authors: N. M. Novikova; M. V. Konyushkova; S. S. Ulanova
      Pages: 224 - 233
      Abstract: Thorough soil–geobotanical studies have been performed on a key plot located in the deserted steppe subzone of the light-chestnut–soil zone within the physicogeographical region of the Northern Sarpinskaya Lowland, Kalmykia, along a 64-m-long profile with coupled analysis of microrelief, vegetation, soils, and remote data (detailed Quickbird image). Geobotanical plots, soil trenches, and holes 1–2 m deep have been established along the profile at 1-m intervals. Analysis of the data has showed a close correlation of soils with plants communities (r = 0.72) and loose correlations of these parameters with microrelief (r = 0.42 and r = 0.36, respectively). Some species―Falcaria vulgaris, Limonium caspium, Agropyron desertorum, Stipa lessingiana, Artemisia lerchiana, Festuca valesiaca, and Tanacetum achilleifolium―are never seen on crust solonetzes; the first four species are also never found on shallow solonetzes, and the first two species are never encountered on solonetzic soils. Other species―Kochia prostrata, Artemisia pauciflora, Anabasis aphylla, and Bassia sedoides―are mainly confined to shallow and crust solonetzes and are rarely found on other soil types. The mowing data are well correlated with the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) (r = 0.77). The status of vegetation reflected by the NDVI value on the image is clearly determined by edaphic conditions, primarily the soil variety.

  • Changes in terrestrial ecosystems of the Lower Volga region caused by

    • Authors: Zh. V. Kuz’mina; S. E. Treshkin
      Pages: 234 - 242
      Abstract: We continued our complex ecological studies in the Lower Volga region started in 2014–2015 (Kuz’mina et al., 2015a) in order to investigate the current state of floodplain terrestrial ecosystems in changing climate conditions (Kouzmina and Treshkin, 2014a) and during regulation of the river flow. We studied typical ecosystem changes in two of four geological and geomorphological regions: western substeppe ilmens and the central part of the Volga-Akhtuba floodplain, which had not been investigated earlier (Kuz’mina et al., 2015a). We estimated changes in ecosystems and the tendencies of landscape dynamics in current conditions.

    • Authors: G. T. Issanova; J. Abuduwaili; Zh. U. Mamutov; A. A. Kaldybaev; G. A. Saparov; T. A. Bazarbaeva

      Abstract: Saline soils are widespread in the southern and central parts of Kazakhstan. In these arid areas, the annual precipitation is 100–150 mm, while the evaporation exceeds the precipitation. The soils in these areas are medium and highly saline. In the framework of this study, numerous cartographic materials pertaining to the saline soils of Kazakhstan and Central Asia have been reviewed and researched. Four soil–halo–geochemical salt accumulation provinces have been identified in Kazakhstan on the basis of generalization and analysis of the available materials. The provinces differ from each other by their genesis, composition, and salt transportation patterns. ArcMap software was used as the main tool for the analysis of the soil–halo–geochemical provinces and the production of a salt accumulation map of Kazakhstan. The research of the salt accumulation geochemistry in the soils, mineral rocks, and groundwaters, salt accumulation types, and patterns of soil migration in the biosphere are the basis for the assessment of regions with irrigation activities. Therefore, the research of the saline soils and salt accumulation processes is of high practical importance.

  • Intensity of gully erosion in arid zone of Azerbaijan republic (by the
           example of the region of the Mingechaur water reservoir)
    • Authors: E. A. Gurbanov; S. A. Ganieva
      Pages: 251 - 255
      Abstract: The growth and development of gullies in the basin of the Mingechaur water reservoir, which is located in the arid zone, were studied for the first time. Soil resistance to erosion by rain water was revealed. The first experimental works on filling funnel holes and gullies were performed. Quantitative and qualitative parameters of the gully network were received. Gully erosion is spread over the entire basin area. A dissection equal to 2.0–7.0 km/km2 or greater is seen in 68.3% of the area. The gully density is also high and may rise to 15.6 gullies/km2 in places. The mean annual growth of gullies is 0.34–7.48 m in length, 0.20–2.48 m in width and 0.10–1.16 m in depth. The rate of gully development depends on the catchment area.

  • Evaluation of the restoration dynamics of the Artemisia terrae-albae
           communities in the northern part of the Aral Sea region
    • Authors: L. A. Dimeyeva; V. N. Permitina; B. M. Sultanova; K. Ussen; V. V. Lyssenko
      Pages: 256 - 264
      Abstract: This article discusses the reclamation dynamics of vegetation cover and soils after the radical phytomelioration of Artemisia terrae-albae pastures communities on brown desert solonetzic soils of the northern part of Aral Sea region. The experiment was laid in the late 1970s. Agropyron desertorum was used to create the sowing pasture. Plowing led to the destruction of natural plant communities and soils. The low germination of Agropyron seeds promoted the spread of weedy annuals, which slow the demutation of natural vegetation for 10 years. At present, the development of the vegetation cover of the laylands has reached the late-succession stage, for which the spatial and synusial structure of zonal plant communities is typical. The soils are at the stage of reclamation of morphogenetic features and properties according to the type of desert soil formation.

           conditions of Kuldzhuktau ridge (Kyzylkum desert)
    • Authors: Sh. U. Saribaeva; Kh. F. Shomurodov
      Pages: 265 - 270
      Abstract: The paper is devoted to an assessment of the current state of the coenotic populations of Astragalus centralis, the rarest endemic of the Kyzylkum. It is established that the studied coenopopulations of A. centralis are normal and incomplete. The cenopopulation is young in the herbage-carboxylon-wormwood and lactuca-wormwood communities and transitional in the petrophytic plant group. By the sum of the scores of the organism and population characteristics, all of the examined cenopopulations are in a pessimal condition.

  • Effect of environmental conditions on the taxonomic diversity of plant
           species in the arid region of Tabuk
    • Authors: Khalid A. Al-Mutairi
      Pages: 271 - 276
      Abstract: Arid and semiarid regions are characterized by a unique floristic composition and structural diversity of their plant communities. The goal of the present study is to investigate the effect of physical and chemical properties of soil on these characteristics of the arid region of Tabuk in Saudi Arabia. With β diversity, the variability of a plant species composition has been studied at four sites (Alwaz, Alqan, Sharma, and Zetah) of the region. Two taxonomic diversity indices, average taxonomic distinctness (Δ+) and variation in taxonomic distinctness (Λ+), have been calculated, and the effect of the environmental situation and limitations of environmental conditions on these indices have been determined. The study represents the first stage of a study intended to evaluate the taxonomic diversity of plant communities of the arid region of the Arabian Peninsula and its connection with soil properties. According to the results, anthropogenic factors (woodcutting, pasture, and urbanization) significantly influence the floristic diversity. It is proposed that urgent strategies of nature conservation be developed to protect plant habitats and prevent their destructive changes.

  • Changes in the population structure and abundance of mammals and birds in
           pasture ecosystems of the southern Minusinsk basin
    • Authors: V. A. Prelovskii
      Pages: 277 - 284
      Abstract: The data from long-term observations (from 1970 to 2012) on changes in the population structure and abundance of mammals and birds under pasture load and reserve regime conditions in the steppe zone of the southern Minusinsk basin are presented. It has been revealed that insufficient grazing or its full absence cause no less serious structural changes in animal communities than its excess. Although a decrease in pasture load leads to the recovery of the mammal and bird population in steppe ecosystems, this recovery is significantly different from native recoveries, which are based on the fallout of some stenoecic species and the introduction of eurybionts at early succession stages. An increase in the effect of pasture load on the steppe ecosystems of the basin is currently being observed again.

  • Desertification paradigm: 40 years of development and global efforts
    • Authors: I. S. Zonn; G. S. Kust; O. V. Andreeva
      Pages: 131 - 141
      Abstract: In light of the 40th anniversary of the United Nations Conference on Desertification and the 20th anniversary of the empowerment of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), the periodization is given and the main stages in the development of international efforts to combat desertification and changes in the desertification paradigm are examined. The UNCCD initiatives, which require serious scientific study at the present stage, are reviewed, including the actively developed concept of land-degradation neutrality. A conclusion is drawn about the need to expand the mandate of the UNCCD beyond the narrow geographic scope of arid and dry regions.

      Abstract: This article presents study data on the status of plant and soil cover in the Barguzin Depression related to soil desiccation as the result of a 3-year drought, which caused the death of natural pine forests and shelterbelts composed of pine and balsam poplar. The main factors of tree death, as well as the soil conditions that favor survival under long-term air drought, have been revealed. A negative trend in the development of forest steppes under climate aridization in the North Baikal region was determined.

  • Background medical–geographical assessment of regions with high
           environmental tourism potential in the Republic of Kazakhstan
    • Authors: T. V. Dikareva; E. G. Koroleva
      Pages: 155 - 160
      Abstract: This paper is dedicated to the medical–geographical assessment of seven regions in the Republic of Kazakhstan where national parks have been designated that have potential for ecotourism development. The authors have grouped the regions by the level of population morbidity in order to identify their regional medical–geographical parameters and background (reference) characteristics. A medical–geographical map chart of the Republic of Kazakhstan showing the complex of natural focal diseases has been produced. Administrative regions with different medical–geographical risk levels have been identified. This makes it possible to develop detailed medical–environmental monitoring programs, combined with organizational and management actions in areas visited by tourists.

  • The nature of the patchiness of irrigated soils in the dry steppe zone (on
           example of the Svetloyarskaya irrigation system)
    • Authors: I. N. Gorokhova; E. I. Pankova
      Pages: 161 - 170
      Abstract: Various variants of the patchiness of irrigated soils, which are reflected on remote sensing materials and associated with the results of field research, have been analyzed on the example of the Svetloyarskaya irrigation system. The system is located on the right-bank part of the Caspian lowland within the solonetz complexes of the dry steppe. It is revealed that the reasons for the formation of the patchiness of irrigated fields fixed on remote materials are not unambiguous. During studies at the Svetloyarskaya irrigation system, it was found that the patchiness depends on the depth of the groundwater table (GWT) and the state of the field (bare soil, cropland, and layland) and can be caused by soil properties, such as primary and secondary salinization, alkalization, the carbonate content, and others.

  • Searching for benchmark soils in the steppe zone of the Trans-Ural Plateau
           to compile the Red Book of Soils
    • Authors: L. N. Plekhanova
      Pages: 171 - 177
      Abstract: A large amount of soil works on the steppe zone of the Trans-Ural Plateau has been analyzed for the purpose of finding benchmark soils to compile the Red Book of Soils. In light of the theory of basic, local, rare, and complex benchmark soils (Kliment’ev et al., 1996), the upland site on virgin soil in the center of the Stepnoe site of the Il’men State Reserve in the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (UB RAS), should be referred to the basic benchmark soils as the most valuable soil object in the area. The upland site is a representative example of the steppe zone of the Trans-Ural Plateau. Brown earth soils and paleourbanozems soils marked by anthropogenic impact should be considered rare soils in the region. Other rare soils include natural fossil soils—the vertical chronological series of buried soils of terraces above the flood plain and soils buried under mounds and under the ramparts of the ancient settlement of Arkaim. The entire Stepnoe site, where different soils of the region are found, is considered a complex benchmark soil site.

  • Carbon reserves in postagrogenic dry steppe soils of Western Transbaikalia
    • Authors: E. O. Chimitdorzhieva
      Pages: 178 - 183
      Abstract: New data on carbon reserves in the postagrogenic chestnut soils of Western Transbaikalia are given. Quantitative and qualitative characteristics of the formation of element reserves in these soils have been revealed. It has been shown that the ratio between organic and inorganic carbon compounds in the total carbon reserves in dry steppe ecosystems varies significantly. The element reserves are gradually restored in postagrogenic successions and become close to those in similar virgin soils.

      Pages: 184 - 190
      Abstract: The properties of alas soils were studied in short-term isolation (4–5 years). According to the speed of the response to the isolation of degraded pastures, components of the cryoarid–alas ecosystem form the following decreasing series: above-ground vegetation—functional range of cultivated soil microbial community—colony-forming units—underground phytomass, total mobile soil carbon, and nitrification activity. The response rates, respectively, are equal to 1, 4, 5, and over 5 years. The biodynamic features of degraded grasslands in the early years of isolation indicate that these ecosystems have a high regenerative potential. The high activity of autotrophic nitrification indicates a continuing imbalance in the circulation of substances in the isolated area.

  • Characteristics of ecological and faunistic complex of soil nematodes in
           dry-steppe landscapes in Manych valley
    • Authors: V. Y. Shmatko; L. P. Il’ina
      Pages: 191 - 202
      Abstract: The ecological and faunal similarity between different communities of soil nematodes have been established in samples of dry-steppe soils with close genetic positions and soil-forming processes. Seventyeight species of soil nematodes from 41 genera, 24 families, and seven orders have been identified in seven model plots with different habitats. It has been shown that specific features of soil nematodes communities are manifested in the species diversity and dominance of certain trophic groups and genera. On the whole, nematode fauna can be evaluated as diverse (Shannon diversity index was 1.53‒2.35) and sufficiently mature (Bongers maturity index of communities was 2.83‒4.9); our data indicates the stability and weak disturbance of the living conditions of nematodes.

  • Diversity and taxonomic composition of weeds in olive orchards in Tabuk
           Region, Saudi Arabia
    • Authors: N. A. Al Harbi
      Pages: 203 - 208
      Abstract: The introduction of weeds into the agricultural landscape is considered a major problem that threatened the cultivated plants as weeds compete with them for water, nutrients, space and light. The information about taxonomic diversity of weeds in olive orchards in Saudi Arabia is still incomplete. The present study aims to investigate the diversity patterns and taxonomic composition of the weeds in olive orchards in four sites located in Tabuk Region in the northern part of Saudi Arabia: Juraydah, Tayma, Qulaybah, and Tabuk. A total of 46 weeds species were identified from olive orchards in the four districts. The weeds communities in the Tabuk region is dominated by Pulicaria undulata, Anisosciadium lanatum, Cynodon dactylon, Emex spinosa, and Euphorbia granulata. The highest species richness of weeds was reporte in Juraydah, followed by Qulaybah, with values of 30 and 24 taxa, respectively. However, the lowest number of weed species was reported in Tayma. The highest values of Shannon-Weiner (H') and Simpson’s (1-D) indices were reported in Juraydah and Qulaybah. The diversity of species within the locations, expressed as beta diversity (β), was also measured. The olive orchards in Qulaybah and Tayma are characterized with high diversity within sites as indicated by the high values of beta diversity of 3.231 and 3.226, respectively. The diversity measures did not show significant differences among the sites (ANOVA, P > 0.05). Based on cluster analysis, olive orchards in Qualybah showed a strong relationship in the taxonomic composition of weeds with other orchards in Juraydah and Tabuk. Further studies concerning other biological and ecological aspects of weeds in the olive orchards of Saudi Arabia are urgently needed. This will facilitate the development of effective control strategies to manage the weed communities and increase the crop yield in olive orchards of Saudi Arabia.

      Pages: 108 - 111
      Abstract: The concentrations of radionuclides responsible for radioactive contamination have been determined in an oilfield area based on the example of the Duzlak oilfield, where a gamma survey was previously conducted. The collector and drainage channel bordering the area is shown to lack effectiveness. An evaluation was given for travertines as a construction material. Measures for isolating the salts of radioactive and other elements that accumulated in the considered area are proposed.
