• On the Problem of Anthropogenic Influence on Mammals of the Prepolar Ural Mountains

    0 View

    The eastern macroslope of the Prepolar Urals is inhabited by 40 mammalian species. Unique species diversity associated with a great variety of mountain landscapes is preserved in this relatively small area because of a low degree of anthropogenic impact. This study is an attempt to estimate the consequences of considerable intensification of human activity planned in connection with the exploitation of placer deposits. Previously, such work caused slight damage to terres- trial ecosystems because it affected the area of only

  • Geographic Trends in the Accumulation of Heavy Metals in Mosses and Forest Litters in Karelia

    0 View

    Heavy metals (HMs) are considered to be among priority technogenic pollutants. To solve ecological problems related to the environmental effects of HMs in the Russian North, it is necessary to make a detailed inventory of their contents in natural objects in different areas with regard to the diversity of climatic and soil-geochemical conditions and the degree of industrial development in these areas. It is known that mosses are informative indicators of aerotechnogenic environmen-tal pollution. Forest litters are important as the struc-tures retaining and accumulating various pollutants. The
