Chromatographic auxanometry and GC-MS-auxanometry in forest plant species vegetation phenological monitoring based on flavor and gas chemistry principles with automatic pattern recognition (climatic, meteorological, taxonomic and phenospectral)
In this paper we propose a novel auxanometric system which is fundamentally different from all the previously knownanalogues, as it allows a simultaneous monitoring of forest plant species growth together with plant development stages.
I) Unlike the quantitative approach in standard auxanometric measurement techniques with the shoot elongation being the onlycriterion of the plant growth, our system implements a comprehensive qualitative growth dynamics criterion including one-to-onecorrespondence between the chemical analysis of plant molecular emission and the environmental conditions variations, whichallows the feedback analysis between the plant growth / development and the environmental parameter variation. II) This isprovided by the fact that the automatic system during operation in different modes after pattern recognition learning (with thesubsequent completion of the database) allows us to investigate and simulate not only a single plant development patterncharacteristic of a certain standard feature space, but also to study experimentally the response of the ecological feature structureupon the changing of external factors. The above strategy leads to the emergence of phenological, simulating-biogeographical,biometeorological, bioclimatological and ecology-physiological approaches in auxanometry. The system proposed allowsparameter variation in the course of the germination / elongation process monitoring as needed (if this is possible within thebiotron, climatic chamber or the greenhouse used for germination / elongation of forest plant species), with the followingaddition of the spectral and chromatographic data in the form of correlation patterns into the database for subsequent comparison.
III) In the case of experimental phelonological spectral plant germination / elongation with the system described it is possible toprogram and control the temperature using a feedback and thus to predict vegetation initiation accurately. This can byimplemented by summing the effective temperatures or their trend detection, which allows to reconstruct the sequence ofgermination or vegetation of individual plant forms in correlation with the characteristic parameters of the artificial climate (forexample, if known that for maple (g. Acer) the sum of effective temperatures is 156,2 °С, and for linden (g. Tilia) – 739 °С, it isobvious that in the thermal ranking database the linden will be behind the maple). IV) Due to this fact the auxanometric systemdescribed allows automatic classification of forest plants in the model plant communities on a set of characteristics according tothe phenorhythm types or phenological groups using a more scaled classification than in outdated systems. The same fact allowsmonitoring in a climate chamber parameter regulation mode by the plant feedback registration using their molecular emissionsensors in a controlled physical environment, i.e. the registered parameters from the detector can be considered as a signalchanging the chamber operation mode. The system approach described operates in a wide range of conditions and possess anumber of different application fields, so it is worth being recommended for implementation in both field and laboratory practiceof forest engineering.

The ecomorphic aspect of the spatial organization of the urbanozem mesopedobionts
The results of studying of the spatial organization of soil mesofauna of the urbanozem of the grassland within artificialforest planting have been processed by OMI- and RLQ-analysis methods. Researches are spent to June, 5st, 2012 in OlesGonchar University botanic garden (earlier – territory of park of J. Gagarin, Dnepropetrovsk). The studied plot is situated on theKrasnopostachekaya balka valley slope (48°25'58.29"С, 35°2'17.89"В). The plot consists of 15 transects directed in aperpendicular manner in relation to the talveg. Each transect is made of seven sample points. The distance between points is 2 m.The coordinates of lower left point have been taken as (0; 0). The plot represents artificial grassland with single tree. Thevegetation has typically partum-forest mega-mesotrophic xeromesophilic character (45,76 % – silvants, 38,99 % – pratants;59,32 % – mesotrophes, 38,98 % – megatrophes; 50,85 % – xeromesophiles). In each point the soil mesofauna was studied (datapresented as L-table); temperature, electrical conductivity and soil penetration resistance, and herbage height were measured(data presented as R-table). Soil-zoological test area had a size of 25×25 cm. The soil mesofauna gave been found as beingpresented by 26 species and with total abundance 93,89 ind./m2. In ecological structure of the soil animal community have beenfound such groups dominant as saprohages, pratants and stepants, gygrophiles, mesotrophocoenomorphes, endogeictopomorphes. The measured edafic characteristics have been shown to play an important role in structurization of an ecologicalniche of mesopedobionts community. The usage of morphological or physiological features of animals for an estimation ofdegree of specific distinctions is applicable for homogeneous taxonomic or ecological groups possessing comparablecharacteristics which also can be interpreted ecologically. The soil mesofauna is characterized by high taxonomic and ecologicaldiversity of forms and comparing which by morphological or physiological criteria it is rather inconvenient. Ecological sense ofcharacteristics in different groups will be not identical, and the basis for their comparison will be inadequate. Therefore we applyto the description of ecological features ecomorphic analysis of soil animals. The organization of communities of soil animalsmay be considered at levels of an investigated point, a biogeocenosis, a landscape and regional level. Actually, on the basis oflandscape-ecological distribution of species in ecological space their accessory to ecological groups – an ecomorphes isestablished. The regular ratio an ecomorphes in these functional groups will be reflexion of their organizational structure and anecological diversity. The obtained data testifies to justice of the come out assumption. It is important to notice that fact that thefunctional groups allocated in ecological space by means of the RLQ-analysis, show regular patterns of spatial variability. Thefirst two axes of the OMI-analysis describe 91,11 % of inertia that is quite enough to describe of differentiation of ecologicalniches of mesofauna on studied area in space of first two axes. For average marginality value (OMI=3,68) the significance levelр=0,001 that testifies to the important role of the chosen variables of environment for structurization of community of soilmesofauna. As a result of the RLQ-analysis and the subsequent cluster procedures are revealed three key functionalmesopedobionts groups and role of the edafic factors in their spatial variation. Local functional groups are characterized byecological characteristics which reflect in terms one ecomorphes of property of others, occupying higher hierarchical position.Ascertaining of spatial heterogeneity of the animal community and determinancy of properties of an ecological niche by soilfactors is important result however for understanding of the nature of heterogeneity the spatial variant of ecomorphic the analysiswith RLQ-analysis application has been processed. Within comparatively uniform field the spatial differentiation of the animalcommunity on functional groups has been found. The reality of their existence proves to be true not only statistically, but that isespecially important, substantial interpretation of ecomorphic markers of groups interrelation and indicators of ecologicalproperties of soil as inhabitancies. The variation of environmental properties within microsites leads to rearrangement ofecological frame of the soil animal community. Heterogeneity of a soil body and vegetation mosaic form patterns of the spatialorganization of the soil animal.
