Abstract:
The peculiarities of the litter in three parkland lime plantations of Moscow oblast with different periods of mowing of the grass cover are studied. The forest litter is characterized as destructive low-power with a comparatively low margin. The most significant indicators of forest conditions are total litter stocks, the proportion of detritus, and the ratio of stocks of grass in the litter and biomass stocks of the grass layer, which indirectly indicates the intensity of the biological cycle. The maximum rate of the biological cycle is revealed for periodically extruded lime plantations.
