The dendrogram based on values of the ral ecosystems and loss of their biospheric function. Sørensen–Czekanowski coefficient shows two clusters Ants are a good model for studies on these processes, of cities with 70% dissimilarity: Warsaw–Cheboksary because their high abundance, considerable biomass, and Yekaterinburg–Salair–Irkutsk. and long periods of activity make their role in terres General analysis of the results shows that ant trial ecosystems extremely significant. The most com assemblages in cities of the forest and forest–steppe prehensive studies on specific features of composition zones are usually dominated by Lasius niger
