Compartmental analysis of the functioning quality of consorting ecotones of protective type




consortium ecotones, ecotones, compartment, mathematical modeling, indicator, energy, environmental impact


It is found that consortium ecotones of protective type – natural discrete structural units of vegetation cover, which have specific properties. It is proposed to investigate consortium ecotones of protective type with the help of compartmental analysis. It is proved that the flow of energy can be both the form of the system under study and also serve as resources (inflows into flows) into another system. At all stages of the functioning of consortium ecotones of protective type, certain pollution takes place, energy and materials are used. Eco-indicator of consortium ecotones of protective type is defined as a closed system of material flows reflected in the process tree
