Effect of heavy metal pollution on plant communities of the Tanalyk River, the Bashkir Transural region



Effect of heavy metal pollution on plant communities of the Tanalyk River, the Bashkir Transural region



Russian Journal of Ecology 42(5): 378-381



Geobotanical analysis of aquatic and wetland plant communities of the Tanalyk River has been performed in the zone of impact from the abandoned Kul-Yurt-Tau pyrite mine. The results show that pollution of the river with highly mineralized runoff leads to a decrease in the ?-diversity and synthetic characteristics of plant communities (?-diversity, total coverage, and herb layer height) and in the aboveground phytomass of dominant species.
