Five habitat types have been studied in the valley forests of the Ussuri Nature Reserve. The cluster analysis was used to distinguish two types of clusters. The first one combines the anthropogenically modified forest plot, the margin, and the plot of a typical valley broad-leaved tree, while the second one combines the oak forest and the coniferous and broad-leaved valley forest. The greatest number of volant Coleoptera species were observed at the margin of the broad-leaved forest.
