Informational and Technical Support of Needing Protection Saratov Region Plant Communities Inventory

Inventory needing protection plant communities is one of the directions of modern phytocenosical and ecologocal research. The Экология 365 information-technology support play the important role. This article provides information about the structure of electronic database “Needing protection plant communities of the Saratov region”.

Particular Qualities of Flora and Vegetation Study of the Nature Monument «Blue Mountain» (Saratov Region, Ozinsky District)

The characteristics of the flora and steppe communities of the nature monument of regional importance of the Saratov region «Blue Mountain » is given. The flora of the territory has preserved features of the forest, which is manifested in the head of the family spectrum of the corresponding floristic sample. At the same time as a result of the fires that occurred, the type of forest changed: the oak tree was replaced by aspen. A high position in the family spectrum of Rosaceae is noted, which is not typical for the subzone of turf-grass steppes.

Mosquitos (Diptera; Culicidae) of the Saratov Region

Described is the fauna of bloodsucking mosquitoes found in the Saratov Region. The article is based on the data collected dur- ing the field surveys in the flooded biotopes along the Volga and Don river basins and Kamysh-Samara enclosed lake basin, as well as on the literature data available. By 1970s, 31 species of mosquitoes have been spotted in the Region. The paper presents qualitative and quantitative changes over the 45-year period in the populations of bloodsucking mosquito, habitant in the flooded areas of different rivers.

Gamaside Mites of the Small Mammals Habitant in the Krasnoarmeisky Locality of the Saratov Region

Gamaside mites have ancient, strong links to a number of pathogens of natural-focal diseases. They constitute a considerable part of ectoparasites living on small mammals. Ac- cording to literature data and own research results, the fauna of Gamaside mites in the Saratov Region includes 44 species. Objec- tive of the study was to investigate the current state of Gamaside mite fauna ecologically associated with rodents in the territory of the Krasnoarmeisk District of the Saratov Region. The research was conducted in September-October, 2010 and in August, 2012.

Ecological Problems of the Saratov Region in Year Environment and the Year of Specially Protected of Natural Territories

The ecological problems of the Saratov region in the Year of Ecology and Protected Areas are discussed: the degradation and destruction of natural complexes, the reduction of species biological diversity and its causes, the need to expand the network of regional SPNA, reduce atmospheric pollution, hydrosphere and lithosphere (limiting emissions of harmful substances and reagents, non-waste technologies, introduction of alternative energy, modern technologies for waste processing and wastewater treatment), soil fertility conditions, growth new technogenic pollutants (electromagnetic, noise)

Anatomical Structure of Seed which Belong to Iris L. Species of Saratov Flora

In the Saratov region all species of Iris are listed in the regional Red Book, with this connection, to preserve these plants, it is necessary to introduce them in an extensive researches, protection and establishing them in the literature. special interest is the study of seeds due to the direct relation with the potential possibility of generative propagation of Iris species, the article presents the results of an anatomical study of the seeds of seven species which belong to Iris L. in Saratov region flora.

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.

Morphologigal Characteristics of Seeds of Some Iris L. Species in Saratov Region

The research presents the results of morphological study of seeds belong to five species of Iris L.: I. aphylla L., I. halophila Pall., I. pseudacorus L. I. pumila L., I. sibirica L. which existed in Saratov region and cultivated in the botanical gardens of national research of Saratov state university, previously named «N. G. Chernyshevsky».

Glaukonit’s Influence on Viability and Development Seeds of Some Grain Crops

It is defined macro- and microelement composition of glaukonite ore of the Beloozersky field of the Saratov region. It is established that it contains a set macro- and the minerals necessary for a mineral delivery of plants. The possibility of application of the studied glaukonite as tools for processing of seeds of grain seeding before crops, on the example of seeds of wheat and rye is considered. Effectiveness of processing of seeds of Marusenka rye and spring-sown Favourite weak field is studied by aqueous extracts of a glaukonite of various concentration (0,01; 0,1 and 1%).

The Rare and Endangered Species of Mammals Recommended for Entering into the Third Edition of the Red Book of the Saratov Region

The list of species of the mammals recommended for entering into the third edition of the Red List of the Saratov region is provided. The necessity to correct and extend the protected taxon list in comparison with the second edition is substantiated.
