multifractal analysis

anthropogenic habitats
small mammals
Summary: The multifractal analysis of the community structure of small mammals which inhabit the areas with a long history of forest management was carried out on the basis of the investigations of 1996-2015. Scaling showed deterioration of the self-similarity of theriocenozis, while scaling down ( reducing the volume of the sample). In our opinion, this is due to the asymmetric reaction of different types of animals in the secondary anthropogenic mosaic of habitats. To obtain meaningful results it is necessary to possess unattainably great amount of data. The time elapsed to learn technology and calculations of multifractal analysis was not justified by the modesty of conclusions received in this study.
