The article reflects the results of studies on the impact of railway traffic on plant communities. The anthropogenic impact on the environment is complex. Many factors affect the species diversity of the flora near railways in different ways. The accumulation of Cd, Zn, Pb, Cr in plants of Pimpinella saxifraga L., Hypericum perforatum L., Trifolium medium L was revealed. The anthropogenic stress leads to disruption of naturally formed ecosystems, which manifests in a decrease in species diversity, density and biological productivity. As a result of the anthropogenic impact adventitious plants appear, the share of which is 11% of the flora. Research in this area contributes to a deeper understanding of the processes of anthropogenic transformation of floristic complexes and should become the basis for environmental monitoring of disturbed habitats.
