    Description

    This paper describes an assessment and monitoring program that was designed and initiated for monitoring recreational impacts in a wilderness in Kamchatka. The framework of the recreational assessment was tested through its application to a case study conducted during the summers of 2008 and 2009 in the Kronotsky State Natural Biosphere Preserve (Kamchatka peninsula, Russia). A detailed assessment of different components of natural complexes of the Preserve and the maps of their ecological conditions showed that some sites had been highly disturbed. Management implications for Caldera of Uzon volcano and other signi´Čücant geothermal areas that allow any type of recreational activity were explored.
