Abstract : The purpose of this book is to describe in concise form the natural zones of the plains of the USSR. A characterization of the mountainous territories, where latitudinal zonality is complicated by the altitude distribution of landscape types by belts, did not enter into the task of work. To complete the picture, however, a special chapter, entitled 'Mountain Landscapes of the USSR,' is provided; this chapter should be regarded as an appendix of sorts to the book.
