Abstract: The article presents the analysis of ground beetle population in forest belts of different types. The ecological structure of ground beetle complexes of forest belts is determined by soil and moisture conditions. Differences in the diversity of ground beetle populations depending on a complex of soil and plant conditions and the nature of anthropogenic impact are found. The increase in steppe formation and xerophytism conditions in forest belts leads to a decrease in species diversity of the genera Carabus, Poecilus, Pterostichus, Calathus, Amara and Harpalus.
