The coastal part of Kronotsky Reserve belongs to the Eastern-Kamchatka forest-shrub, tundra-marsh ecological region of Primorye, while the remainder of the territory is part of the Eastern alpine-tundra-shrub, mountain-volcanic ecological region, close to the forest-tundra of Beringia. Generally, the landscape of the reserve can be called mountain-forest. The diversity of its landscapes gives a nearly full representation of Kamchatka’s nature. Within the reserve, one can find most types of ecosystems distinctive for Kamchatka.
