• Soil penetration resistance increases as a result of park reconstruction.• Soil compaction explains one-third of the variability in soil macrofauna.• The abundance of the earthworm Aporrectodea rosea increases after reconstruction.• The abundance of the earthworm A. calliginosa decreases after reconstruction.This study is based on a park in an in...

The level of reacreation load on the components of urban green areas is increasing, so identifying the effective management tools in these ecosystems is becoming crucial for ensuring the maintenance of soil biota habitats. The purpose of this study is to reveal a pattern of structuring community of soil macrofauna under a recreational impact based...

The recreational load is an important factor in transforming the living conditions of living organisms in the urban environment. This article examines the role of recreation as a driver of the changing habitat of soil micromolluscs in the park environment in an urban landscape. The hypothesis that recreational exposure changes the hierarchical orga...

The study of potential possibilities of mesofauna as bioindicator of soil contamination by heavy metals is one of the most important areas of urban ecology and soil biology. The work presents the results of ecotoxicological and bioindicative assessment of the environment and the biota of the Melitopol urbosystem of Ukraine. The dynamics of chemical...

... Thus, urban parks influence climatic conditions both in the city itself and are a factor in changing global climatic conditions as a significant tool for the sequestration of greenhouse gases and toxic substances (Yorkina, 2016). Urban park vegetation improves air and water quality (Badach et al., 2020;Zymaroieva et al., 2021). Green spaces greatly reduce the probability of urban flooding (Kim et al., 2016;Miller & Hutchins, 2017). ...
... From the perspective of the general theory of systems, the internal structure of ecosystems is determined by the nature and way of interaction of elements [1]. The forest and herbaceous ecosystems have different abilities to influence the formation of their internal phytocenotic environment and the composition of the organisms that inhabit them [2][3][4][5]. The various studies have shown the specific features of algal communities in forest, steppe, desert, and other ecosystems [6][7][8][9][10][11]. ...
