Abstract : The soil cover in the territory of the Taymyr Biogeocoenological Station is differentiated by considerable complexity. Here, just as in other regions of Western Taymyr, three types of the soil cover structures can be clearly traced. The mesocomplexes for a soil cover of an entire ecological series, include the watershed, its slopes, depressions and valleys. (Modified author abstract)
