Of the 27 species of orchids growing in the Kemerovoregion, 20 are included in the Red books of The Russian Federation and the Kemerovoregion. An objective assessment and development of effective protection measures involves consideration of the location, population assessment and evaluation of the conditions. The article features characteristics of species composition, biomorphs, ecological features of the protected Orchidaceae species in the Kemerovodistrict. The research focused on the population status of Dactylorhiza fuchsii (Druce) Soo and Orchis militaris L. at the time of their fl The process involved setting transects consisting of 25 adjacent square pads with an area of 1 m2 each. The number of specimen was calculated on each site; their age and status were determined; the height of fl plants, the length of the infl and leaf were measured. Juvenile, immature, virginile and generative specimen were defi in each population of orchids. The authors determined the vital status of specimens, characterized the age and vitality spectrum, as well as the spatial structure of the populations. The population status Orchis militaris L. is defi as satisfactory, whereas the population of Dactylorhiza fuchsii (Druce) Soo was assessed as bad.
