STABILIZING AND FLOOD CONTROL ROLE OF FOREST COVER OF THE WATERSHEDS OF THE UZH AND LATORICA RIVERS

T.V. Parpan, N.V. Kichyra

Abstract


The stabilizing role of forest ecosystems by the level of preservation of ecological functions of Uzh watershed is better than that of Latorica as forest cover is 71.1 % and 42.8 % respectively. The modern cenotic structure of forests in both watersheds is slightly transformed. The age structure by hydrological criteria is nearing the stabilizing one. To maintain hydrological stability and mitigation of flood waves in the watershed of the Latorica, it is necessary to increase forest cover and productivity of the Agriculture Ministry forests and forest area on reserve lands.
