The great mountain ranges guarding the southern borders, home to the rare and elusive Snow Leopard, the huge Karakum sand desert of Central Asia, where wild asses roam across savannahs of pistachio trees, and the windswept steppes with their wandering herds of Saiga Antelopes are dramatically described from season to season. The author then turns to the cold icy coasts and islands and the huge expanses of tundra in the Russian Arctic, before visiting Siberia with its freezing coniferous forests and Lake Baikal, the world's deepest lake, where long isolation has produced a multitude of unique creatures. Illustrated throughout with superb colour photographs, Realms of the Russian Bear, which accompanies the six-part television series, is an unforgettable wildlife exploration of one of the world's most remarkable and least known regions

Realms of the Russian bear ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fifth in a series of six programs on the natural history of Russia and the central Asian republics. This segment explores Siberia, stretching across the northern reaches of Russia, a land of extremes and superlatives. It has the greatest forest on earth, an immense expanse of spruce, pine and fir spanning 6,000 miles. From the wolves and the elks to the musk deer, all its inhabitants have one thing in common: the ability to survive temperatures which can plummet to 90 degrees below zero. Lake Baikal, in the southeast, is the oldest and deepest on earth and is home to a host of unusual creatures. Descending to depths of more than 2,500 feet, cameras catch glimpses of the lake's hidden denizens--forests of sponges, transparent fish, and bizarre crustaceans found nowhere else. Baikal, too, falls under the reign of the bears, who emerge in vast numbers from the forest to hunt along the edge of the lake
