Abstract

The article deals with the spatial structure of a blueberry spruce forest in northern taiga subzone. Three measures (projective cover of blueberry and sphagnum moss, and relief) allowing its division into homogeneous groups (clusters) have been singled out. Using distribution models, we have singled out and analyzed 6 groups and presented a logical cluster scheme.

Keywords

biogeocenosis, ground cover, geostatistical analysis, spatial structure.
