  • The vegetation types of the mid-montane subzone are mixed mid-montane forest, Castanopsis forest, Nothofagus forest, coniferous forest, mid-montane swamp forest, mid-montane sedge-grass swamp, mid-montane Phragmites grass swamps, mid-montane Miscanthus grassland and succession on abandoned gardens.

  • This ecoregion is the southernmost latitudinal belt within the subzone of southern taiga in West Siberia.

    West Siberian broadleaf and mixed forests

  • The ecoregion represents a southernmost latitudinal belt within the subzone of southern taiga in West Siberia which include mixed small-leaf-coniferous, small-leaf and coniferous grass forests.

    West Siberian broadleaf and mixed forests

  • This subzone is a corridor along which species move both east to west and west to east, as well as from south to north and north to south.

    West Siberian broadleaf and mixed forests

  • There are three subzones: subglacial, from 2,000 m to 3,000 m which is unglaciated; a glaciated subzone between 3,000 m and 5,300 m, with arĂȘtes, cirques, and U-shaped valleys with meandering rivers, and a volcanic subzone dominated by lava and volcanic ash deposited during more recent times on the cones and flanks of the three volcanoes.
