Medium-scale mapping of ecosystems in the Eastern Baikal region

Yu.N. Krasnoshchekov, Yu.S. Cherednikova, and V.L. Kolomiets

We examine the contemporaneous ecosystems and their spatial and functional structure in the Eastern Baikal region in relation to altitudinal zonality in the mountains, and to the non-uniformity of manifestation of hydromorphism in negative morphostructures. Within the region we identified 174 kinds of ecosystems; 77 and 36 of them correspond, respectively, to middle-mountain ad low-mountain ecosystems, and 61 kinds of ecosystems are evolving on Baikal’s terraces, in the hollows, along the river valleys, and in the near-estuarine areas. We provide some portions of the 1:200 000 map for the ecosystems within the Kikinsky forestry district of the Republic of Buryatia.
