Keywords: agrosphere, landscape, agro-ecological zoning, criteria, principles, classification of natural and anthropogenic processes


Existing approaches agroecological zoning and agricultural landscapes as spatial subdivision agrosphere operation. We consider the priorities of general and targeted environmental zoning areas. Presented differences anthropocentric and biocentric approaches to zoning and environmental analysis of agricultural landscapes. The features of the methodology specific agro-ecological zoning and mapping ofUkraineto address the problems of sustainable development of agricultural land. A unified theory of the criteria applied agroecological zoning measures. The principles of landscape zoning and shows their relevance in the system of general scientific agroecological zoning ofUkraine.The principles of natural and anthropogenic taxonomic classification of agricultural landscapes. The first phase of agroecological zoning requires a coherent typological classification groupings agricultural landscapes based on natural and anthropogenic factors of the topical structure, the main agro-ecological processes and information parameters of quantitative evaluation. The smallest unit of spatial zoning is agrolandscape, which should be considered as an agricultural area with a homogeneous topical structure, functional use and features of natural and anthropogenic processes. Proposed a Red Book Landscapes ofUkraine.Presented the problematic issues of modern land use and the possibility of their science-based solutions in the target agro-ecological mapping and zoning.
