Description Natural and semi-natural plant communities of the Svjatoj Nos Peninsula on the East coast of Lake Baikal, Eastern Siberia, Russia, are classified and described using the methods of Braun-Blanquet phytosociology. A total of 48 associations and communities were recognized, comprising alpine tundra, subalpine forb vegetation, aquatic macrophyte vegetation, tall-herb and poor fens, mires, bogs, meadows, sand-dune and steppe vegetation. Twenty six syntaxa of ranks ranging from subassociation to class are described or validated for the first time. All communities are documented by phytosociological relevés.
