We examine the directions of changes in the state of yernik (dwarf subshrub) communities under anthropogenic impacts of different kinds. It is pointed out that all kinds of impacts can be categorized as disastrous (gold-mining, and ploughing up of lands); causing destructive changes (impact of track machinery, and intense livestock grazing), and as temporarily disturbing and causing fluctuations (short-lasting fires, and moderate livestock grazing). Yernik communities in need of protection are highlighted.
