Abstract

Floristic diversity has been investigated in different latitudinal zones of Central Siberia. The area of focus in the present analysis stretches about 2,900 km from Karskoe Sea, at 77°41′N latitude, to the southern Russian state border, at 49°45′N. In terms of longitude, the area stretches approximately 2,075 km from the Yenisey River, at 82°E, to the Lena River, at 130°E. Total area makes up about 4.24 million km2.
