dc.description.abstractThis compilation of literature published in Russian since 1970 comprises 1225 bibliographic citations relating to disturbance and restoration of soils and vegetation. Sixty-five percent of these were found by a manual search of CRREL Bibliography vols. 25-32; the others were obtained through off-line searches from the relevant computerized data bases and personal files. Only one of these data bases, that of the National Agricultural Library, is shown to be of significance in providing a valuable checking source. The literature is discussed in chronological fashion, with general statements followed by highlights of each year's contributions (with two tables and two appendices for amplification). The years 1972 and 1973 produced the most publications, and by 1976 there was a noticeable lag in pickup of publications by the indexing services. A trend is apparent from a reconnaissance and description approach in earlier papers toward an integrated ecosystem approach in more recent publications. Certainly, increased consciousness of the effects of disturbance on the permafrost environment, and the importance of restoration and preservation of these environments, are reflected in the recent literature, particularly in symposium proceedings.en_US
