Abstract


This article contains information on ecology and phytocoenology of Transbaikalia border line populations of the Central Asian xero-halophytic species, Artemisia schrenkiana and Limonion gmelini. These species were noted in the composition of halophytic Achnatherum steppeficated meadow in the Ivolginskaya Valley of the Selenga Middle Mountain Range. The authors believe that the species are extinct of Pliocene desertified-steppe landscapes of Transbaikalia. The identified species add data on habitats and phytocoenotic association of these valuable medicinal and ether-bearing fodders. Detailed composition of essential oils in Artemisia schrenkiana Ledeb in Western Transbaikalia is identified
