Moiseev PA & Shiyatov SG

, 2003

This pair was taken in 1929 (L.N. Tyulina) and 1999 (P.A. Moiseev and S.G. Shiyatov) from the north-facing slope of Bolshoi Iremel. Over the 70 years, the area of meadow communities was considerably reduced, density and average height of stands increased, and upright stem forms came to predominate over bushy tree forms.
