Structure, Dynamics and Efficient Use of Terrestrial Invertebrates Communities

Basic Division: Department of Zoology of Invertebrates and Water Ecology.
 
Brief Description of Research Activities
The range of scientific problems studied within the programme: structure of invertebrates’ population; geographic variation and long-term dynamics of the structure of invertebrates’ population depending on environmental and historical factors; peculiarities of communities’ population modified by anthropogenic influence; cadastre and monitoring investigation of the Perm Region invertebrates.
