Abstract

The article discussed research materials of long-term studies of largescale ecological and geographical experiments in the harsh conditions ofthe Altai Mountains. In these experiments first time has been set with useof simultaneous environmental testing extensive collections of potato genotypes in different conditions of altitudinal zones (highlands, midlands andlow mountains). The high significance these results for the Republic of Altai, where the potato is one of the most important food crops, and there is aneed for the introduction and establishment of highly adaptive varieties forcultivation in various and contrasting environmental conditions. The paperexamined the nature of the variability of varieties of quantitative traits under the influence of various environmental factors, and extent to biologicalresource of potatoes in different ecological zones of the Altai Mountains isestimated through consideration of the resistance to infection and variability of varieties. It was found that the environmental conditions of virus-freeareas of the Altai Mountains with a harsh climate with favorable climaticconditions for growing healthy (free of plant pathogens) potatoes.Key words: adaptability, biological resources, variation, highlands, variability, potatoes, low mountains, midlands, ecological testing of varieties.
