Description

Information

Kuloy River estuary, Arkhangelsk Region, Russia, near the town of Dolgoschele. There are many natural ecosystems important for biodiversity here, including shallow waters and tidal area (deep blue), marshes and grassland in the river valley (yellow, yellowish green) as well as huge wetland complexes (pink, crimson, magenta, purple, violet, turquoise, and blue) with several small lakes (black). Sparse northern pine forests with lichen (Cladonia) are displaying as large purplish magenta areas between the wetlands and the river, and dark green areas represent denser forests.
