With an area that is 77% of the total area of Russia, it is possible to study the nature naprotjazhenii not one century. Enjoy the changing climatic conditions. In the west, the region is bordered by the Ural mountains, in the eastern part with ridges vodorazdelyayuschimi Pacific and north Siberia washed by the Arctic Ocean. All these "neighbors" in direct relation to the nature of doing Siberia, its climate, topography, water world, richness and diversity of the representatives of the nature. In regard to physical and geografichesskom Siberia Siberia are divided into West, East, mountains called Yuzhnoyu and allocate the Central, North-Eastern Siberia.
Western Siberia - this part of Siberia, which occupies the area between the Ural Mountains in the western part and the bed of the river Yenisei in the eastern part. The location of this part of Siberia between such significant physical, natural objects and determines the nature of this part. The ridges of the Ural mountains take important part in the formation of air masses that determine the climatic characteristics of the West Siberia, as well as the border with the bed of the river Yenisei. The relief of this part of Siberia represented by the West Siberian Plain, which occupies a totally western Siberia. With respect to area, the plain has about 3 million square kilometers. The main waterways are such rivers as the Yenisei, Ob, Irtysh with numerous tributaries. On the plain there are many lakes and swamps.
Eastern Siberia is a unique for its natural parameters, it includes in its possession the territory west of the Yenisei to the water-ridges to the east along the Pacific Ocean. The main area is occupied by the Central Siberian Plateau, which is represented by tundra lowlands in the north, south and east is represented by the mountain ranges of the Eastern and Western Sayan, Yano-Kolyma Region and the Trans-Baikal. Water bodies are represented by rivers: Viluy, Hangar, Olekma, Lena, Yenisey, Selenga. Rich eastern part of Siberia to the forestlands.
Southern Siberia is a mountainous part of Siberia, which stretches more than 3 thousand of the West Siberian to the Zeya-Bureya Plain. The boundaries of the region in the South of Russia is carried out on the border with Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and China. The embossed against a mountainous country where the alternating ridges and intermountain basins, and begins the Altai Mountains in the west, from the Altai to the north stretch the two ridge - Kuznetsky Alatau and Salairsky logs, from the Altai and the east separated by ridges Tannu-Ola and Western Sayan between Kuznetsky Alatau and they located the Khakass-Minusinsk Basin, then proceeds to the East Sayan ridges Hammar-Daban, and Barguzin - Baikal area, and then begins a mountainous country Trans-Baikal, which consists of Olekminsky, Yablonovy, Borschovochnogo ridges and valleys that are raised - Vitim plateau. In geology tectonics - mountains of Southern Siberia are revived mountains, they are having on the ground rolling plains and ridges in the new block processes.
North-Eastern Siberia occupies the extreme north-east of Eurasia at the interface of three lithospheric plates - the Pacific, Eurasian, North American, and this led to extremely difficult terrain in this part. The duration of the geological history of multiple instances of dramatic displacement morphology and orogeny. Borders are presented: the valley of the Lena - in the west, Aldana - lower reaches, then, when the cross Dzhugdzhur limits extend to the Sea of Okhotsk; border in the southeast extends from the mouth of the Anadyr lowlands to the mouth Penzhina; in the north - the sea of cold Arctic Ocean - to the north; to the east and south - the waters of the Pacific Ocean. some geographers do not include the Pacific coast of the North-Eastern Siberia, and to draw the line on the border of the river basin of the Pacific and Arctic Oceans.

Nature of Siberia - a unique combination of mountain peaks and ridges in the south of Siberia, incredibly beautiful numerous waterways, do not leave indifferent any inhabitant of our planet.
