The patterns of sex and age structure, seasonal activity of Diacheila polita under photoperiod and temperature conditions were studied in the North Europe and West Siberia within three bioclimatic zones: forest-tundra, southern tundra and typical tundra. A total of 7,963 adults and 24 larvae were collected using pitfall traps. All adults were disse...
Article
Background insect herbivory, i.e. the minor but chronic plant damage caused by insects, is usually considered ‘negligible’ for plants when compared with the severe defoliation associated with forest pest outbreaks. We experimentally tested the hypothesis that the impacts of background herbivory on tree growth and mortality accumulate over years, re...

Full-text available
Freshwater mussels (Unionida) are one of the most imperiled animal groups worldwide, revealing the fastest rates of extinction. Habitat degradation, river pollution and climate change are the primary causes of global decline. However, biological threats for freshwater mussels are still poorly known. Here, we describe a diverse ecological group of l...

During the complex study of soil fauna of Khibiny mountains polar massif in 2008-2018, a total of 40 species from 17 genera of Carabidae family were found on different slopes of ten mountains, in altitudinal gradient from 230 to 1100 meters a.s.l. The Amara, Harpalus (seven species in each), and Notiophilus (four species) are most diverse genera. H...

Full-text available
The High Arctic bumble bee fauna is rather poorly known, while a growing body of recent molecular research indicates that several Arctic species may represent endemic lineages with restricted ranges. Such local endemics are in need of special conservation efforts because of the increasing anthropogenic pressure and climate changes. Here, we reexami...

Faunistic data are scarce for the Lepidoptera from the Arctic islands of European Russia. New sampling and revision of the earlier findings have revealed the occurrence of 60 species of moths and butterflies on Kolguev, Vaygach and Dolgij Islands and on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago. The faunas of Kolguev and Dolgij Islands (19 and 18 species, resp...

Origins of the fauna in Iceland is controversial, although the majority of modern research supports the postglacial colonization of this island by terrestrial invertebrates rather than their long-term survival in glacial refugia. In this study, we use three bumblebee species as a model to test the hypothesis regarding possible cryptic refugia in Ic...

Full-text available
The evolutionary biogeography of the Arctic Ocean islands is a relatively little-known topic. The Novaya Zemlya Archipelago, a severe mountain land of glaciers, rocks, Arctic deserts and tundra, is among the most enigmatic places in the world because it was a closed area for more than half a century. Here, we report the results of an integrative st...

The paper presents new data on the bumblebee fauna of Vaygach Island and the Yugorsky Peninsula. The authors use materials collected on these territories as well as data from published sources. 5 species of bumblebee fauna are found on Vaygach Island: Bombus flavidus, B. lapponicus, B. pyrrhopygus, B. balteatus and B. hyperboreus. 11 species are me...
Thesis
Full-text available
The current state of local fauna of carabid beetles of the Khibiny Mountain Massif (KhM, 67°N 33°E) located above the Polar Circle was studied, taking into account the altitude gradient and slopes exposure. Thirty biotopes were investigated in 2008-2014 in the ten mountains at the altitudes from 265 to 1100 meters a.s.l. In result, 31 species of 15...

Arctia flavia (Fuessly, 1779) is recorded from Verkhnetoemsky Raion of Arkhangelskaya Oblast for the first time, and six moth species, Diacrisia sannio (Linnaeus, 1758) (Onezhsky Raion), Cybosia mesomella (Linnaeus, 1758) (Primorsky Raion), Autographa bractea ([Denis et Schiffermüller], 1775) (Primorsky and Kholmogorsky Raions), A. excelsa (Kretsch...

Invertebrate herbivores, insects in particular, play important functional roles in terrestrial ecosystems. At background (non-outbreak) densities, they consume 5-15 % of woody plant foliage in forests across the planet. At the same time, almost nothing is known about the levels of insect herbivory in Arctic tundra. To test the hypothesis that the a...

The polar tiger moth Pararctia subnebulosa (Dyar 1899) (Erebidae: Arctiinae) is one of the few conspicuous and largest Lepidoptera species in the High Arctic. However, the biology and distribution patterns of this remarkable species have not been sufficiently studied. In the present note, we summarize known data for the species localities, provide...

During the summer periods of 2010, 2012 and 2013, the butterfly assemblages in typical arctic tundra habitats of the Yugorsky Peninsula and the Vaygach Island (Arctic European Russia) were studied. In the northern part of the Yugorsky Peninsula, near the Amderma settlement, eight species of butterflies were found, and in the northern part of the Va...

The insect fauna of European arctic tundra is seriously understudied in contrast to the well documented subarctic Fennoscandian fauna. We report the results of a survey made on Kara Sea coast near Amderma (N 69°46', E 61°40') from 18 June to 3 August 2012. This survey yielded 156 specimens of 29 species of Lepidoptera, 16 of which are new for the N...

Проведена оценка изменения еловых древостоев в лесных островах Медвежий (Ошдимыльк) и Пымвашор на востоке Большеземельской тундры (бассейн р. Адзьвы) на основе метода повторных ландшафтных фотографий (снимки 1909 и 2010 г.). За минувшее столетие произошло существенное расширение лесных островов, резкое увеличение густоты и высоты древостоя, формиро...

Seasonal dynamics of activity and demographic structure of Carabus nietens in the forest-tundra and southern tundra of the Kanin Peninsula was studied. In the northernmost range, the species has a one-year life cycle with reproduction in the early season and summer larvae. C. nitens demonstrated elongated period of development from egg to imago com...

The seasonal dynamics of the activity and the demographic structure of Calathus melanocephalus and C. micropterus populations were studied in the northern taiga of Arkhangelsk Province. The period of adult activity lasts from early June to mid-or late September with the maximum surface activity observed in the middle of summer. In C. melanocephalus...

The seasonal dynamics of the activity and the demographic structure of Carabus granulatus and C. glabratus populations was studied in the northern taiga of European Russia. The period of adult activity lasts for 90 days from early June to late August with the maximal activity observed in June. At the northern boundary of the range, the spring speci...

Species composition and ecological structure of ground beetle population was studied in northern taiga meadows of the Arkhangelsk Region. Meadows in the northern forest zone proved to harbor 91 ground beetle species. Carabid complexes formed in the intrazonal biocenoses of the northern forest zone can be as rich as the family topical groups in the...

The development of widespread species of ground beetles (Carabidae) in the northern taiga was studied. The differences of life cycles between these carabid species in the northern taiga and in the zone of mixed forests were found. In the northern taiga, the vernal and atutumn peaks of the animal acitivty shift to summer periods. Adaptations of spec...

During the first stage of this project, we would like to expand our studies concerning the role of the trans-Beringian and trans-North Atlantic faunal exchange in evolution and dispersal of terrestrial and freshwater animals. As for the model groups, we use various taxa of freshwater mussels and terrestrial insects. We collected samples across northeastern Asia (Kamchatka, Kolyma Highlands, and Chukotka) and northwestern North America (Alaska, Yukon and British Columbia) to compare the molecular phylogeny and phylogeography of sister animal taxa from the Nearctic and Palaearctic regions.
