Abstract

The formation of phytocenoses at the junction of taiga and extrazonal steppes has been studied in the center of the western Baikal lakeshore. Geobotanical profiling, including soil profiling, has been carried out in one of the key areas. The structure and dynamics of community formation in the conditions of interrelated development of light coniferous taiga and extrazonal steppes have been revealed. Edaphic conditions and location of phytocenoses are the main initiating environmental factors which determine the trend of floral cover development in this part of the western Baikal lakeshore.
