In summer 2016, we observed premature feather malformation among goslings of greater white-fronted goose (Anser alb. albifrons), between 7 and 10 weeks of age on family gathering areas on Kolguev Island, Russia, the most important breeding island in the Western Palearctic. Rarely reported in wild birds, to our knowledge, this phenomenon has not bee...

Illegal killing of wildlife is a major conservation issue that, to be addressed effectively, requires insight into the drivers of human behaviour. Here we adapt an established socio-psychological model, the theory of planned behaviour, to explore reasons for hunting the Endangered Bewick's swan Cygnus columbianus bewickii in the European Russian Ar...

Arctic birds migrating southwards face a multitude of challenges such as habitat loss, pollution, overexploitation of food resources and climate change impacts. Long-tailed Duck winter populations in the Baltic Sea have declined in recent decades. However, precise spatial data are lacking, especially from males. Thus, we aimed to identify the winte...

Kolguev Island (69˚05′ N 49˚15′ E) is located in the Pechora Sea, the southeastern part of the Barents Sea. The island’s ecosystem is unusual due to the total absence of rodents and specialized predators such as weasels, while non-specialized predators such as Arctic (Vulpes lagopus) and red (V. vulpes) foxes and Rough-legged Hawk (Buteo lagopus) a...

The taxonomic structure, typology, species richness, and total abundance of bentic and littoral macroinvertebrate communities from small lakes of the Arctic and Subarctic zones are considered on the basis of original data from three northern Palearctic regions (the foot of the Putorana Plateau, Kolguev Island, and Western Svalbard Island). A compar...

1. Seasonal geophysical cycles strongly influence the activity of life on Earth because they affect environmental conditions like temperature, precipitation, and daylength. An increase in daylight availability during summer is especially enhanced when animals migrate along a latitudinal gradient. Yet, the question of how daylength (i.e. daylight av...

The Arctic is entering a new ecological state, with alarming consequences for humanity. Animal-borne sensors offer a window into these changes. Although substantial animal tracking data from the Arctic and subarctic exist, most are difficult to discover and access. Here, we present the new Arctic Animal Movement Archive (AAMA), a growing collection...

Here, we present an updated list of bird species of the Novaya Zemlya Archipelago and integrated data on birds' recordings on the archipelago in 2015 and 2017. Our results reveal that Novaya Zemlya is inhabited by 111 bird species, i.e. 46 nesting species, 25 common species that do not breed there or nesting is unconfirmed, 39 vagrant species, and...

In the last decade, the interest to the long-term study of the specific fauna of Arctic mammals has significantly increased. The reason for that is the fact that, due to global climatic changes, the configuration of species ranges is changing significantly. Small terrestrial mammals have turned out to be a good model group for such studies since th...

Background: The long-tailed duck (Clangula hyemalis) was categorized as ́Vulnerable` by the IUCN after a study revealed a rapid wintering population decline of 65% between 1992–1993 and 2007–2009 in the Baltic Sea. As knowl-edge about the European long-tailed duck’s life cycle and movement ecology is limited, we investigate its year-round spatiotem...

Data on new vagrant and breeding species of Kolguev Island are presented. The complete bird list of Kolguev Island currently, in 2019, consists of 111 species, among which 58 species are known to be breeding on the island. Mute Swan (Cygnus olor), Bar-headed Goose (Anser indicus), Ross’s Goose (Anser rossii), Garganey (Anas querquedula), Smew (Merg...

Many migratory animals travel in large social groups. Large, avian migrants that fly in V‐formations were proposed do so for energy saving by the use of up‐wash by following individuals and regularly change leadership. As groups have been rather homogeneous in previous work, we aimed to explore leadership and its flight mechanics consequences in an...

The article presents the results of the first two stages of the project on the assessment and mapping changes in the state of the Great Eurasian Natural Tract (GEANT) as a factor of global environmental stability and a source of ecosystem services carried out in the Laboratory for Biogeography of the Institute of Geography, Russian Academy of Scien...
Article
Full-text available
Long-tailed Ducks (Clangula hyemalis) breed around lakes in tundra vegetation and spend their winter at sea. Their most important wintering site in Europe is the Baltic Sea, and most of the birds wintering there breed in northern Russia. In light of recent population declines, particularly of the Baltic Sea wintering population, it is important to...

For the national, regional, and local analysis levels, assessments of actual anthropogenic transformation of ecosystems in Arctic zone of the Russian Federation are presented. Data were obtained using terrestrial, remote and statistical information technologies. The Island of Kolguev is chosen as a local level object, where the biogeography laborat...

In the seven nests of the Lapland Bunting (Calcarius lapponicus) collected from the Arctic island of Vaygach, 1348 oribatid mite specimens representing 25 species, 24 genera of 21 families were found. Nine species were found for the first time on this island: Atropacarus striculus (Koch, 1835), Phthiracarus ligneus Willmann, 1931, Eueremaeus oblong...

Killing protected species mistaken for morphologically similar quarry species, or species with weaker protection, can hinder their conservation. Despite policy aims to reduce threats from illegal killing, information is lacking on susceptible species, conservation impacts and the identification accuracy of hunters. We examined the ability of hunter...
Article
Full-text available
Background For the conservation and management of migratory species that strongly decrease or increase due to anthropological impacts, a clear delineation of populations and quantification of possible mixing (migratory connectivity) is crucial. Usually, population exchange in migratory species is only studied in breeding or wintering sites, but we...

Authors studied the Great Eurasian Natural Tract (Backbone) (GEANT) between Fenno-Scandia and Pacific Ocean using remote sensing, field verification, and cartographic analysis, as well as applying on the data from scientific literature. They have updated southern borders of GEANT and showed the presence of steppe patches within the GEANT. During th...

Data on barnacle goose nest density and distribution collected on Vaygach Island (in the vicinities of Varnek, Lyamchina and Dolgaya bays (southern, southwestern, and northwestern Vaygach, respectively) in 1986–1988, 1995–1997, and 2013 are presented and compared. The numbers of geese nesting there have clearly increased over the past 15 years. At...

Low pathogenic avian influenza virus can mutate to a highly pathogenic strain that causes severe clinical signs in birds and humans. Migratory waterfowl, especially ducks, are considered the main hosts of low pathogenic avian influenza virus, but the role of geese in dispersing the virus over long-distances is still unclear. We collected throat and...

Article
According to migration theory and several empirical studies, long-distance migrants are more time-limited during spring migration and should therefore migrate faster in spring than in autumn. Competition for the best breeding sites is supposed to be the main driver, but timing of migration is often also influenced by environmental factors such as f...

An overview assessments of landscape changes in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation (AZRF) and their influence on the productivity of vegetation cover were conducted in 2014–2015 with the use of remote methods (remote sensing) and field studies. Multi-scale, multi-temporal and multi-directional transformations of vegetation cover in terms of...

Project
The BfN funded MEERESENTEN project aims to determine thresholds for long-tailed ducks wintering and molting in the German part of the Baltic Sea by: - Determining breeding success of seaducks breeding in the Russian Arctic. - Using data loggers to improve understanding of habitat parameters during migration and resting stages. - Studying nutritional ecology using stable isotope analysis and genetic methods. At the same time, the age structure of ducks will be determined in stopover areas. From these figures, population thresholds will be derived.
