Spreading like wildfire

Nature Climate Change, Vol. 7, No. 11. (November 2017), pp. 755-755,


The 2017 wildfire season has seen unusually high fire levels in many parts of the world, with extensive and severe fires occurring in Chile, the Mediterranean, Russia, the US, Canada and even Greenland. Is this a sign of things to come? [Excerpt] During January and February, Chile experienced what their president Michelle Bachelet called “The greatest forest disaster in our history”. The nation was not adequately equipped to tackle these fires, leading the government to enact a state of emergency and accept ...

Genetic variability of the grey wolf Canis lupus in the Caucasus in comparison with Europe and the Middle East: distinct or intermediary population?

PLoS ONE, Vol. 9, No. 4. (8 April 2014), e93828,


Despite continuous historical distribution of the grey wolf (Canis lupus) throughout Eurasia, the species displays considerable morphological differentiation that resulted in delimitation of a number of subspecies. However, these morphological discontinuities are not always consistent with patterns of genetic differentiation. Here we assess genetic distinctiveness of grey wolves from the Caucasus (a region at the border between Europe and West Asia) that have been classified as a distinct subspecies C. l. cubanensis. We analysed their genetic variability based on mtDNA control ...

Analysis of Trophic Indices in Gypsy Moth (Lymantria dispar L.) Larvae from Two Geographic Populations

Russian Journal of Ecology, Vol. 33, No. 5. (2002), pp. 342-348,


Specific features of larval feeding in two geographic populations of the gypsy moth are considered. It is shown that in larvae reared on an artificial diet, trophic indices depend on several factors, including the age and sex of larvae and the food plant on which the parental generation developed in nature. It is shown that larval micropopulations belonging to the same geographic population but feeding in nature on different plant species differ from each other to a greater extent than those ...


Willows of Russia and Adjacent Countries: Taxonomical and Geographical Revision (English translation of 1968 Russian edition)



Through this translation, English-speaking readers will gain access to an authoritative reference on willows written by a distinguished Russian botanist whose treatment of the genus Salix has been the standard for decades. The monograph is dedicated to willows growing on the territory of the former Soviet Union and adjacent countries including all of Europe, Northern Africa, Asia Minor, West and Northeast China, Mongolia, and North Korea. The author observed many species in their natural environment, cultivated some of them, and accomplished ...

Interactive Agricultural Ecological Atlas of Russia and Neighboring Countries: Economic Plants and their Diseases, Pests and Weeds [Online]



A nation’s food security depends on access to information on the economic plants, associated pests, and environmental factors that shape the agricultural landscape of a country. Today, geographic information system (GIS) tools allow maps and information to be assembled in a framework that can be used by a broad audience to solve wide ranging problems. For example, the Atlas can be used to determine what crops grow best in specific locations, and the diseases and pests likely to be encountered. The ...


Study of natural hybridization between Alnus incana (L.) Moench. and Alnus glutinosa (L.) Gaertn

Journal of Forest Science, Vol. 53 (2007), pp. 66-73


Variation of metric and qualitative characteristics of A. incana (L.) Moench. and A. glutinosa (L.) Gaertn. has been studied in 10 natural populations in West Siberia, Russia and the Czech Republic in connection with the problem of natural hybridization. Morphological peculiarities of the species and their spontaneous hybrids are shown. Twelve leaf characteristics were used, in addition, qualitative characteristics were assessed, such as: type of bark, degree of pubescence of leaves and stems, and presence of a “tuft” in the angles ...

Occurrence of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis in Russia and its potential impact on European forestry

EPPO Bulletin, Vol. 38, No. 2. (August 2008), pp. 233-238,


The emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis, is a beetle native to East Asia where it is considered a minor pest, preferentially attacking weakened or dying ash trees. It was first discovered in North America in 2002 and has since become one of the most serious invasive insect pests, killing millions of healthy ash trees in urban and forested settings. Similar damage is now occurring in the region of Moscow, Russia, which causes serious concern for Europe. In this paper, we review ...


Distribution, impact and rate of spread of emerald ash borer Agrilus planipennis (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) in the Moscow region of Russia

Forestry, Vol. 86, No. 5. (01 December 2013), pp. 515-522,


Surveys of ash trees along the major motorway routes leading away from the city of Moscow during July 2013 indicated that emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) was well established up to 235 km west of the city and 220 km to the south. Over the last 4 years, the beetle has spread in these directions at an average rate of 30–41 km year−1, which cannot be explained by natural dispersal alone and implies that human-assisted transport is contributing significantly to the ...


Remote sensing estimates of boreal and temperate forest woody biomass: carbon pools, sources, and sinks

Remote Sensing of Environment, Vol. 84, No. 3. (March 2003), pp. 393-410,


The relation between satellite measurements of the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), cumulated over the growing season, and inventory estimates of forest woody biomass carbon is estimated statistically with data from 167 provinces and states in six countries (Canada, Finland, Norway, Russia and the USA for a single time period and Sweden for two periods). Statistical tests indicate that the regression model can be used to represent the relation between forest biomass and NDVI across spatial, temporal and ecological scales for ...


Was there a basis for anticipating the 2010 Russian heat wave?

Geophysical Research Letters, Vol. 38, No. 6. (19 March 2011), L06702,


The 2010 summer heat wave in western Russia was extraordinary, with the region experiencing the warmest July since at least 1880 and numerous locations setting all-time maximum temperature records. This study explores whether early warning could have been provided through knowledge of natural and human-caused climate forcings. Model simulations and observational data are used to determine the impact of observed sea surface temperatures (SSTs), sea ice conditions and greenhouse gas concentrations. Analysis of forced model simulations indicates that neither human influences ...
