Annotation

Vegetation classification of Far North technogenic habitats (ground quarries, bulldozed areas, railway and road embankments) is done by the Braun-Blanquet approach. Plant communities were studied in 1993–2001 in following 5 regions (vicinity of Vorkuta, Novyi Urengoi, Norilsk and two stations of railway going to Yamal Peninsula) situated in forest-tundra and southern hypoarctic tundra. 7 new associations (Oxytropidetum sordidae, Tanacetetum bipinnati, Arctophilo fulvae-Eriophoretum scheuchzeri, Erysimo hieracifolii—Poetum alpinae, Polygonetum ochreati, Puccinellietum sibiricae, and Chamaenerio—Artemisietum vulgaris ass. prov.) including 4 subassociations, 36 variants and 56 subvariants were described. One community type (Puccinellia hauptiana—Descurainia sophioides) characterising the pioneer vegetation with plant communities of primary succession was described also. The distinguished syntaxa belong to the alliance Chamerio—Matricarion hookeri (Ishbirdin et al., 1996) Ishbirdin 2001. Taking into account the previous publication (Сумина, Копцева, 2004) the Far North technogenic habitat vegetation of this alliance is represented by 10 associations, 8 subassociations, 56 variants and 100 subvariants. Their complete prodromus is cited. The geographical and ecological positions of distinguished sytaxa are discussed.
