Annotation

The complex cartography of the Khmelnitskaya APS 30-kilometer zone (the total area of 282.6 thousand ha) was carried out during the elaboration of project according to the MAGATE demands. The present geobotanical map of zone was created in the scale 1 : 100 000.

The ecological-phytocoenotical (dominant) vegetation classification was taken as a basis of the map's legend. The legend includes 27 numbers and 6 variants, represented by the boreal forest (11.6 % of area), nemoral forests (8.4 %), meadows (2.4 %), hydrophyte communities (3.2 %), agro- and urbo-communities (61.9 %) and young forest plantations (4.4 %). The characteristic of prevailing community types is given. Influence of the economic activity on the vegetation cover is shown. The geobotanical map can be used for both further monitoring and management of the forest economy with the aim of increasing the ecosystems stability against the external influences.
