Atlas of Russias Intact Forest Landscapes (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)

This atlas presents an inventory of intact forest landscapes (i.e. the remaining large, unbroken areas of pristine nature within the forest zone of Russia). This endeavor was carried out by a group of Russian non-governmental conservation and scientific organizations between 1999 and 2002 as part of the Global Forest Watch initiative. The purpose of the atlas is to provide an accurate picture of the boundaries of federally protected areas, and to allow decisions about these landscapes to become better informed and more balanced. The Atlas has two map sections: the Main Section shows the location of intact forest landscapes; the Thematic Section shows their tree species composition in two different ways.
