In this section of the site we collect our authoring (our own and from our friends and colleagues) images of natural landscapes of the
world, including different geological formations, relief forms, natural water bodies and
vegetation types, as well as some plants and animals typical to different native zones and
You can choose these regions using the map or the countries/regions list
(below the map). Clicking on the red dot on the map or country in the list
you will be transferred to the page with the whole list of this region images and their
previews. Clicking on the preview you will find the full sized image (usually 1024 x 768
pixels and approximately 150 kilobytes).
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).
Our Field Ecology Center published more than
180 methodical materials for nature studies. Some of them are in English:
