ABSTRACT
The response of local forest ecosystems to changes in summer soil moisture content in the context of possible climate changes. A procedure for local hydrological forecasting is presented. Calculations based on prediction climate models GISS and HadCM3 for forest ecosystems on zonal ecotones between forest and steppe showed a progressive development in the XXI century of a thermoarid trend with pronounced soil drying during the vegetation period, which should result in decay of broad-leaved and mixed forests and their replacement by small-leaved-pine and oak-grove forest-steppe.
