In this paper we briefly summarize literature on naturally regenerating flora and vegetation of mechanically disturbed terrain associated with industrial development. We also propose a general study design to assess not only the rate of regeneration under prevailing — and possibly changing — climate conditions, but in particular the relative role of arctic, boreal species to deduce future trends in the composition of the flora, structure and function of the vegetation and evolution of the tundra biome.
