During the research, we have identified three types of succession systems formed under conditions of territorial complexes studied: a succession system of lime-oak nemoral forests in the NTC (natural territorial complex) of high interfluvial plains, succession system of spruce-oak-linden nemoral forests in the NTC of high interfluvial plains and succession system of Raifa spruce moos forests in the NTC of indigenous valley slopes.
Communities of these sites, originating from the Raifa spruce-pine moss forests in the NTC of primary valley slopes composed of fluvioglacial sands and sandy loams belong to successional system of spruce-oak-linden nemoral forests.
Successional ratio of these areas makes a demutational series of spruce-oak-linden nemoral forests.
Appendix 1): Arctic = tundra zone (ar); Boreal = taiga or coniferous forest belt (bo); Hypoarctic = arctic 1 northern taiga + mountain tundra in boreal zone (hy); Nemoral = zone south of boreal: mixed or deciduous forest, steppe, desert (ne); Polyzonal = wide range within above types (po); Montane = mountains in nemoral zone (mo); Cosmopolitan (cos), see also Fig.
The main reasons for this expectation were the smaller area and post-glacial history of the boreal, and especially the arctic zones, compared to the nemoral zone.
The distribution types used are: arctic (ar), boreal (bo), hypoarctic (hy), nemoral (ne), polyzonal (po), montane (mo) and cosmopolitan (cos), see also Methods.
Despite the evidence of past wood removal, the densities of canopy trees are in the range of those reported for old-growth forests in the nemoral and borenemoral zones (Nilsson et al.
