Abstract

The paleogeographic analog method has been applied to estimate future changes in the state of the main components of the environment on the East European Plain at 3 time intervals within the 21st century (the 2030s, 2050s, and 2080s). Two warm epochs of the past, the Holocene optimum and the Mikulino (Eemian) interglacial optimum have been chosen as the paleoanalogs. In the first decades of the 21st century the most probable changes involve herbaceous plants and tree regrowth. It will only be by the end of the century that tree-species penetration of new areas and shifts of zonal boundaries may be expected. The predicted increase in potential evaporation may result in a reduction of wetland areas
