Theme I. Inventory, stratigraphy and conservation of mires and peatlands
The article deals with the time-spatial classification of Western Siberia mires based on the two-row concept classification by V. B. Sochava. It allows determining the stability of the wetland landscapes to human impacts. The classification reflects the dynamics of landscapes and includes their native and serial states. Objects of the classifications are the basic natural systems subordinated to larger complexes. The classification is based on a landscape mapping and field data collected on the territory of Tomsk region. Time-spatial landscape classification reveals combinations of spatial components of SE West Siberian natural systems for environmental management and forecast the development of mires.
