This page contains the list of images of Kamchatka's flora (vegetation associations and plants),
made by the participants of the Moscow city school #57 youth ecological expeditions (2002, 2006 и 2007).

Except in this section there are other images of Kamchatka's nature, sorted over the following subjects:
volcanoes, mountains, water bodies (streams, rivers, lakes, ocean) and wildlife.

Clicking on the preview in the list below you will be transferred to the page with full sized image
(usually 1024 x 768 pixels and approximately 150 kilobytes)(open in a new window).

From Photo Nature section of our site you can also download thousands images of fungi, lichens, plants and animals, made by professional Russian field biologists and geographers during their expeditions all over the Russia and former USSR republics. All objects from our collection are determined by scientist and have exact scientific name, date and place of taking picture, as well as size of the original image.
You are able to find necessary pictures using four different approach: 1) with a help of Geographic Index (all objects are separated by countries and nature geographical zones), 2) with a help of Systematic Index (all objects are separated by their systematic position), 3) with a help of Alphabetical Index (all objects are separated by their scientific Latin names according to the alphabet), and 4) with a help of Search Form (you can search scientific (Latin) names of species, genus, family, or order).
