Abstract

This chapter contains descriptions of topography and hydrography of the Russian Plain and surrounding areas including Eastern Karelia, the Kola Peninsula and the Northern, the Central and the Southern Russian provinces together with the western slope of the Ural Mountains. The main climatic parameters distributed over the study area and average changes in climate during the last century are also discussed. Forest vegetation and forest soils are surveyed for the boreal, the hemiboreal and the nemoral forest regions.
