The generalized large-scale maps as well as characteristic of the vegetation of three cluster sites of the new nature reserve “Altyn-Dala” (Kazakhstan) were compiled. The studied territory is located in two natural zones – steppe (sub-zone of desert steppes on light chestnut soils) and desert (subzone of northern deserts on brown soils). 7 types of vegetation – steppe, desert, forest, shrub, meadow, paludal and aquatic (aquatic macrophytes) occur on the territory of the nature reserve. Interesting and rare plant communities were recorded.

Key words: Kazakhstan, vegetation mapping, desert steppes, northern deserts, meadows, aquatic macrophytes, ecological series of plant communities
