Abstract

The AA. study the influence of 9 local, non-local and combined quantitative topographic characteristics on vegetation cover, altitude and density in 4 areas of the Rudny Altai. Differentiation of plant properties is shown to depend on relief parameters which control migration and accumulation of water in landscape by gravity. In some cases the phytocoenosis characteristics can have higher correlation with non-local and combined topographic variables than with local ones. The AA. demonstrate the advisability of the use of digital models and maps of indicated topographic characteristics in plant investigations
