Abstract

Landscape ecological studies supply valuable data for advanced nature management in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation. The recently adopted State program for advanced economic development of this zone outlined eight regions for such activities. Our study area Indiga belongs to Nenets advanced economic development region. Its landscapes are presented by rolling and hilly plains at the coast of the Barents Sea. Different tundra types are the most typical vegetation cover, but forest-tundra and even northern taiga are also met. Nowadays Indiga is a small settlement in the mouth of the Indiga river which according to the State program will give rise to a new sea port belonging to the Northern Sea Route infrastructure, railway terminal construction. Dominating nowadays traditional nature management will be completed by transport and residential promoting nature management conflicts emerging from joint exploitation of several ecosystem services by different stakeholders. Such conflicts need elaboration of regulation system. Such regulation is of primary importance for ecosystems with low resilience to technogenic impact which may destroy natural processes of ecosystem services pools reproduction. We present a case study demonstrating the procedure of revealing and mapping of ecosystem services using a landscape map. This is the first step for quoting of ecosystem services exploitation.

Keywords
