Large wetland areas with river valley forests in eastern Komi

Description

Information

Large wetland areas with river valley forests in eastern Komi, west of the town of Neftepechorsk, Velu River, and Lakes Dzer and Dzervad (Republic of Komi, Russia). This large wetland complex contains various types of mires, including oligotrophic sphagnum mires (white and gray), more nutrient-rich mires (turquoise, magenta, crimson, and pink), and several small lakes. Forests still remain in the river valleys where the wetlands have protected them against destruction. The areas surrounding the wetlands are mainly logging areas, secondary forests or fire scars. There is also a large fire area within the wetland area (dark purple-magenta spot).
