Pagination or Media Count:
The highly variegated environmental conditions of North Central Siberia make for vegetative cover that is not uniform. This complicates the task of defining basic units of vegetation for the purpose of mapping. But the distribution of vegetation is closely related to certain factors in the physical geographic environment, including lithology, geostructure, relief dissection, and neotectonics. Materials documenting these factors can be an important aid in interpreting and mapping vegetation on various scales.
