Kamchatka-Kurile taiga

WWF Abstract

Often called "Conifer Island," this ancient taiga forest is located along the Kamchatka River in the central valley of the Kamchatka Peninsula. Conifers are not the only kinds of trees in these relict taiga forests, but they are symbols of this unique northern land. This ecoregion also holds the Kamchatka Peninsula’s most significant expanses of forest and is the easternmost example of Siberian taiga forest.
