Keywords: steppe ecosystem, the reproduction of soils, human disturbance, archaeological monuments, Late Holocene
Pages: 819-829


Features of the development of the steppe chernozems were established, based on the study of soils of different age groups on archaeological sites. Differences in the formation of phytomass and morphological maturity of the soil profile in different age successions recovery were shown. Regional model of the humus horizon steppe soil over time allowed us to estimate the time interval at which the processes of humus accumulation and morphological maturity of the soil profile are relatively equilibrium - 1700-1900 years.
