The aim of this study was to characterize the spatial structure, density and distribution of shoots within the individual clumps of Myrica gale, and the sexual structure in the populations of this species. The area of most clumps varied from 0.02 to 20 m2. The density of shoots in the clumps was negatively correlated with the size of the clump, the mean value being 23.31 shoots per m2. The density of shoots in different parts of the clumps was higher in the peripheral parts of the clumps than in their centers. There were more male than female shoots in the clumps (75.87% and 24.13%, respectively). In the 57% of the clumps both male and female shoots were recorded. The occurrence of monoecism and synoecism was common.
