The article describes the development history, differentiation features, anthropogenic transformation and ecological features of modern landscapes of the Lower Kura depression. On the basis of large-scale mapping of landscape components in the research area, the role of a number of natural and anthropogenic factors in the formation and development of the modern landscapes of the area was analyzed, and the modern ecological results created by them were determined. For this purpose, the role of a number of landscape-forming azonal and anthropogenic factors in landscape differentiation was systematically analyzed and the modern ecological condition of geocomplexes was evaluated.
