This paper discusses the main indicators diversity of vegetation in key areas of the northern macro slope of the Western Tannu-Ola Range. The degree of forest cover and vegetation fragmentation were estimated using Landsat-TM/ ETM+/OLI images for June 25, 1992, June 18, 1998 and June 24, 2015 in QGIS using the plugin Landscape Ecology. The Simpson index shows of increasing biodiversity in different altitudes. The results showed that with increasing climate warming in the region and maintaining this trend, the proportion of dark coniferous forest at all altitude levels (foothill, mid-elevation and high-elevation zones) will increase. And this led to a decrease in the fragmentation of the forest cover of northern macro slope of this range.
