Abstract. Deltaic ecosystems of the Tersko-Kumskaya lowland are characterized by the greatest variability of soil formation conditions and soil variability in salinity and alkalinity. The differences connected with dynamics of salinity and level of Caspian sea, ground and surface soil moisture are manifested in the processes of salt accumulation, desalinization, migration in spatiotemporal aspect. Migration dynamics of salts is affected by modern and paleofeatures of soil and soil forming rocks. A complicated character of the processes of salinization and desalinization and irreversible dynamics contribute to increase of the variety of salt-affected soils and soil forming processes with three demensions: time, space and direction.
Key words: salinization, desalinization, neutral salts, alkalinity, reversibility, migration, processes, profile, hysteresis, variability.

Abstract. Dynamics of modern anthropogenic impact on water resources is studied and features of their reaction to the occurred changes are revealed. It is stated that the quality of water according to a number of hydrochemical indicators has been improved, but remains in general unsatisfactory, especially by hydrobiological features. A level of the pollution with biogenic chemical is very high in many small rivers and in ground waters. The vegetation is the main and annually renewed source of biogenic chemical substances to ground and surface waters.
Key words: water resources, anthropogenic impact, rivers, ground waters, vegetation.

Abstract. Anomalies of the Soil Water Index (SWI) of the remote sensing data in the North-Western Pricaspian Lowland from May to August of the period 1992 to 2008 were studied in the paper. Periods of low and high moistening were identified on base of Thornthwaite Moisture Index (TMI).
It is shown that the spatial and temporal distribution of anomalies of the SWI is consistent in sign with the anomalies of TMI, obtained using 17 meteorological stations on the territory.
The deviation from the average annual values of SWI and TMI for the period 1992-2008, exceeding the positive standard deviation, characterizes the anomaly of increased air or soil moistening. A similar negative deviation characterizes the anomaly of low moistening (deficit).
There are the periods of low moistening of the North-Western Pricaspian Lowland: in June 1992, July 1994, from May to August 1995, at 1996 (excluding June) and 1998, in June 1999 and 2004, from May to August 2005, in the summer of 2006 and 2007, and in July and August 2008. The high air moistening was observed from May to August 1993, in May and July 1997, in May and August 1999, in the observation period in 2000, in July 2004, in May 2006 and May 2008.
Predominantly positive anomalies were observed in May 1993, trends in local anomalies indices differ in the north and south (Figure a)). The anomalies sign and trend of changes in SWI and TMI in June 1993 and May 1997 are the same (Figures b and c). Anomalies of one sign for both indicators was observed in the south of the North-Western Pricaspian Lowland in May 2000, the sign of anomaly of SWI and the anomaly of TMI do not coincide in the north (Figure d)). The positive anomaly of TMI prevailed in the region in May 2008. Trends in local anomalies of SWI varies in the north and south of Astrakhan region (Figure e)).
The quantity of negative and positive anomalies of SWI does not differ in the north and south of the region (Table). Positive anomalies of SWI are found more frequently in May and June in the period 1992-2008 in territory of the Astrakhan region and negative anomalies prevailed in July and August. Positive anomalies of an index were found more often in May, June and August in the south region, and negative - in the north.
Comparison of satellite and ground data of soil moisture in the Dzhanybek area region was conducted. It was found that the satellite data adequately reflect seasonal trend in soil moisture based on ground measurements.
Key words: Soil Water Index, anomaly, Thornthwaite Moisture Index, satellite data.

Abstract. In this paper authors describe some particularities of phytocenosis formation dynamics on Uzhnouralsk power station ash-dumps, 15, 25 and 35 years after recultivation activities, description of direction and rates of cultural phytocenosis and self grown territories species composition transformation according to their ecotopes.
The investigation of phytocenosis transformation on recultivated Uzhnouralsk power station ash-dumps have shown that after biological recultivation activities there can be seen productive and valuable systems with dominating of transplanted species: Onobrychis arenaria (Kit.) DC., Medicago media Pers., Bromopsis inermis (Leyss.) Holub. Lack of care and pasture load have increased disintegration and degradation of phytocenosis. Further in 10-15 years cultural species (especially legumins) were forced out by wild growing ones. Transplanted later in 10 years, after the first sowing, Agropyron cristatum (L.) Beauv. successfully settled, partial taking root into systems on empty ash.
Investigations, which took place 35 years after biological recultivation, have shown that different-crop-cereals phytocenosis with dominating of Agropyron cristatum (L.) Beauv., Elytrigia repens (L.) Nevski, Euphorbia virgata Waldst. et Kit., Artemisia dracunculus L. was formed on recultivated ash-dump. The transformation of cultural phytocenosis goes with their xerophytisation along the way of crop systems forming, which approach to meadow steppe with dominating of Agropyron cristatum (L.) Beauv. and Poa pratensis L.
On the land parts of empty ash self grown plant cover forming goes slowly with detention of 10-15 years – from simple non closed different-crop-wormwood plant groups, with the most stable for ash growing species of local flora (Artemisia dracunculus L., A. campestris L., Achillea nobilis L., Potentilla bifurca L. etc.) including a lot of ruderal species (Artemisia absinthium L., Berteroa incana (L.) DC, Erysimum cheirantoides L.) to more complex of species amount different-crop-wormwood phytocenosis.
After 35 years on empty ash one can see forming of less species amount different-crop-cereals phytocenosis with prevailing of Festuca pseudovina Hack. Ex Wiesb., Poa pratensis L., Calamagrostis epigeios (L.) Roth, Artemisia dracunculus L.

Kosolapov V.M., Trofimov I.A., Trofimova L.S. FORAGE PRODUCTION – A STRATEGIC DIRECTION IN ENSURING FOOD SAFETY IN RUSSIA. THEORY AND PRACTICE. M.: Rosinformagrotech, 2009. 200 p.
The book shows the scientific and practical basis for improving productivity and sustainability of Russian agriculture, agricultural land and agro landscapes on the basis of environmental management. The prospects of managing and designing agro-ecosystems and agricultural land by strengthening the role of fodder production, perennial grasses in the infrastructure of agricultural landscapes, crop pattern and crop rotation.
Attention is drawn to the fact that herbal ecosystems not only provide forage for livestock, they preserve agricultural land, agricultural landscapes, create soil fertility. Too small a proportion of grassland and perennial grasses in the structure of agricultural land and acreage destroying agro landscapes of Russia – the very basis, a production base of agriculture. At the same time forage ecosystems contribute to the preservation and accumulation of organic matter in the biosphere, perform essential productional, environment stabilizing and environmental functions in agricultural landscapes and have a significant impact on the ecological condition of the country.
For biologists, ecologists, geographers, agricultural practices, teachers and students.
AGROLANDSCAPE-ECOLOGICAL ZONING AND ADAPTIVE INTENSIFICATION OF FORAGE PRODUCTION OF THE VOLGA REGION. THEORY AND PRACTICE, Editors: Doctor of Agricultural Sciences V.M. Kosolapov, Doctor of Geographical Sciences I.A. Trofimov. Moscow-Kirov: "Printing House VYATKA", 2009. 751 p.
In the monograph prepared by a team of authors, given the scientific basis, materials and methods of research results agrolandscape-ecological zoning of the Volga natural-economic region of the Russian Federation. To account for regional differences in natural and economic conditions, biological and environmental laws are assessing the current state of agrolandscapes, agricultural lands, development of negative processes. We consider the problem of adaptive intensification of forage production, improving productivity and sustainability of agrolandscapes based on optimization of feed and environmental management. The prospects of managing and designing agroecosystems and agricultural land. Defined organizational and agro-technical measures to improve the productivity and sustainability of agricultural land. The book contains three main sections: 1. Agrolandscape-ecological zoning of agricultural ecosystems, 2. Management of agricultural landscapes and their design. Adaptive intensification of forage production 3. Management of agricultural landscapes and adaptive intensification of forage production in the Volga region.
The authors justify the leading role in optimizing forage production agrolandscape systems, sustainable management of production, environment forming and environmental functions of agricultural land. A concrete example of the Volga natural and economic region of Russia clearly demonstrated the possibility of practical application of highly scientific research. Criteria and practical optimization options of species composition and structure of the acreage of fodder crops, their rational distribution in space (on the land) and time (in the structure of crop rotations).
