Abstract

AbstractThe article outlines the main causes and effects of the destabilization of ecosystems in the Lake Baikal basin. They were identified via long-term monitoring based on large-scale mapping and landscape and soil-geobotanical studies on a network of model polygons and key sites established in areas with increased ecological tension. The degree of disturbance of the natural environment of the region is assessed, the main factors of degradation are revealed, and the pattern of degradation processes is determined in different types of terrestrial ecosystems in the Baikal basin.
