Abstract

Succession-driven transformation of plant and soil cover on solifluction sites in the permafrost zone of Central Evenkia.

Abstract

The impact of solifluction (soil-sliding) on soil and vegetation cover as well as their restoration during the period after the disturbance was analyzed in the continuous permafrost region of Central Siberia (Central Evenkia). The role of vegetation invading after a disturbance is demonstrated for accumulation of biogenic elements and soil development.
