Abstract

Environmental conditions developing at the boundary of windfall- and fire-damaged forest biocenoses at different stages of progressive succession have a positive effect on the total abundance of rodents, but the role of ecotone in forming the structure of their microhabitats is ambiguous. The complex of biotic and abiotic conditions in the ecotone has a positive influence on the size of shrub coverage area and the abundance of saplings, whereas the influence of the edge effect on other microhabitat parameters (namely, herbaceous and moss coverage) is negative or neutral.
