The climate conditions and the spatial structure of vegetation in Western Siberia have been comprehensive analyzed. The changes in the climate in this region and in the geobotanical landscape during the past half century have been studied based on meteorological data taking into account the landscape zoning. It is shown that an increase in the annual average temperature results in the reduction of dark coniferous forest and expansion of small-leaved forests and swamps.
