Abstract: Multi-year studies of the forest formation processes in the virgin Abies nordmanniana forests reveal new facts on the origins and recent distribution of the fir forest communities in the Caucasus mountains. Characteristics of the biological background, seed-bearing, natural renewal, and "life strategy" of this species, the structure and dynamics of the Abies forests as well as ways of their rational use and protection are discussed.
