In this series, grouped landscape complexes exist in conditions of excess surface moisture or soil, and periodic flooding.
Wetland landscape division into subtypes conditionally and held on the basis of the analysis of area-replacement complex.
Of northern bogs are located in the zone of fragmented occurrence of permafrost. In the western part of the county is dominated by flat sedge-cotton grass bogs, often with frozen soils and cryogenic landforms. Often there are complexes of eutrophic-mesotrophic grass-moss-shrub wetlands, forested sparse pine oppressed (Severososvinskaya hill), larch (Nadymskaya Read more [...]

It must be remembered that the energy cost of the organism in the Arctic winter are essential for human life support in autonomous existence. Low temperatures in themselves violate the balance between spending energy and education. Even for short periods of cold, oxygen consumption increases by 2.5 times, which indicates the activation of metabolic processes in the body. The level of daily energy expenditure in the Arctic increased by about 20% compared with the performance of the same work in a temperate climate. It is therefore necessary not only to have shelter from the cold, but also to Read more [...]
