Short-term isolation of the bunchgrass steppes of the Southern Kulunda


Elesova N.V.

The article considers the results of the experiment to improve the condition of the degraded bunchgrass steppes of the Southern Kulunda at different stages of pasture degradation by the conservation method (2013-2018). The change in the species composition, structure of the grass stand, supply of aboveground phytomass and its components as a result of decreasing pasture load is presented.
Key words: Short-term isolation; Conservation; Bunchgrass steppe; Southern Kulunda.
