Influence of the metallurgical enterprise on the state of mesopopulation in soils of steppe geosystems

E.P. Bessolitsyna and I.V. Balyazin

We report the investigation results which provide a deeper insight into the changes in biotic communities in the contamination zone of the Sayanogorsk aluminum smelter. The study revealed a negative influence of technogenic pollution on the population size and biomass of invertebrates; we demonstrate the possibilities of using the structure and quantitative characteristics of zoocenoses in biodiagnosing the state of steppe geosystems in conditions of geochemical anomalies.

Keywords: technogenic impact, geosystems, soil, population size and biomass of invertebrates, structure of zoocenoses, monitoring.
