Abstract

A review of the studies carried out by the Institute of Forestry in Norilsk industrial region was presented. The impact of mining and metallurgical industry on forest-tundra vegetation was discussed. Several methodological approaches concerning research organization and monitoring of the environment in the regions under extreme technogenic impact, as well as estimation of damage from industrial objects, were suggested. Zoning of the territory by the level of technogenic impact was done according to degradation of vegetation cover and other biogeocenoses components. The territory was divided into several areas: technogenic wasteland, zones with technogenic biogeocenoses, moderate and mildly disturbed ecosystems.
