Influence of the Tengutinsky Oil-extracting Complex on Soils of the Reserve «Black Earth»

In article influence of the Tengutinsky oil-extracting complex on chemical properties of soils of the reserve Black Earth is investigated. Negative action of an oil complex is studied. Features of accumulation of heavy metals in a soil profile are revealed. It is proved that oil pollution of the studied soils leads to change of physical and chemical properties of soils. Consistent patterns of distribution of heavy metals in brown semidesertic soils are determined.

Current State of the Higher Aquatic Vegetation of the Balakovo NPS Cooling Reservoir under the Influence of Herbivorous Fishes

The article presents data on the assessment of the state of higher aquatic plants cooling reservoir Balakovo NPS under the influence of biomeliorative fishes. It was revealed that the species diversity of higher aquatic vegetation for the period of study has sharply decreased from 34 (2009) to 12 species (2015). The dominant species, which defines the image of plant communities, is common reed (Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. Ex Steud). Reed communities are rated as very highly productive in terms of net primary production.

Dynamics of the Number and Current State of Population Red-footed Falcon (Falco Vespertinus Linnaeus, 1766) in the North of the Lower Volga Region

The abundance dynamics of Falco vespertinus is considered on the basis of our field surveys carried out within the Saratov region and adjacent territories in 2011–2016 and analysis of the literature data. It is shown that F. vespertinus is now presented by stable populations in the spacious territory of the Trans-Volga part of the region. However, some reduction of its abundance was registered here for the last several decades of the 20th century. Currently, the falcon populations in the Volga right-bank region can be characterized as mosaic, and the F.

The Dynamic Ofecological Conditions and Accumulation of Chemical Elements in Genesis of Watershed Mires of Central Russia

The article shows the dynamic of ecological conditions during development of watershed mires of karst origin. The genesis of mires depends on state of surrounding landscapes, types of bedrocks and hydrology. All these features lead to differences in accumulation of chemical elements in peat deposits. For each element the natural background was defined. The exceedances of natural background indicate anthropogenic impact. By this way, ecological situation of the region was defined.
