Clay minerals in the loose substrate of quarries affected by vegetation in cold environment (Siberia, Russia)

Research output

Abstract

Pioneer plant communities play an important role in the process of parent substrate colonization by biota and a successful restoration of ecosystem as well, especially on the first stages of recovery successions. The aim of present research is to study the influence of plant communities of the initial stages of primary succession on mineral composition of substrates from sandy quarries situated in the forest-tundra zone to understand the specificity of substrate transformation initiated by vegetation. The studied quarries are located in the forest–tundra zone of Western Siberia close to the town of Labytnangi. Sandy substrate was quarried here in former open woodlands, in communities with spruce, larch, and birch in the overstory and dwarf shrubs, mosses, and lichens in the ground layer. Time of vegetation development in quarries varies from 15 to 40 years. In substrates, pH values decrease simultaneously with the rise of moistening as well as plant canopy closure, which also influences the moistening. Clay
