ABSTRACT:

The article presents the materials of geobotanical survey of the steppe ecosystems of Stavropol. The purpose of the work is to show the current state of grassy natural communities and suggest ways to preserve them. Fragments of zonal vegetation represented by the feather-fescue-herb, the feather-black-cholophyte grasses and grass fescue and fescue-costera-grass steppes are considered. The real ways of preserving and restoring the grass stand of steppe ecosystems are proposed in the following areas: first, in the steppe communities located near rural settlements it is necessary to align the food intake of natural grass stands with the available livestock of animals in the individual sector. Secondly, we need a scientifically based mode of economic use of natural communities, including a rest mode for them. Third, the restoration of natural grass stands, similar to the primary steppe with an abundance of grass, legumes and other species, must be carried out in the place of degraded natural communities. Their implementation will ensure the preservation of biological diversity and productivity of the steppe ecosystems of Stavropol.
