Landscape diversity in the Russian part of the Lesser Khingan

  • D. M. Fetisov
Regional Problems of Environmental Studies and Natural Resources Utilization


Three key types of natural-territorial complexes (NTCs) ensuring geosystem stability are identified on the basis of assessing landscape diversity in the Russian part of the Lesser Khingan. Landscape representativity for special protected natural territories of the Lesser Khingan is outlined. A need to increase the protected area of taiga landscapes is revealed.
