Questions related to Caucasus
We are looking for entomological reports, articles or a list of species with Chironomidae species from Georgia and Azerbaijan. We are particularly interested in the area of the Small Caucasus. Does anyone have a job on this topic, especially in Georgian and Azerbaijani? We'll be grateful for help
An interesting order of orthoptera for me, I want to study better. I am just starting out in Orthoptera identification but I need help with good identification keys at the genus and species level. So if you know some of them, please recommend to me.
My material (Orthoptera) is from Georgia (Caucasus).
Thank you in advance.
The territory of the Northern Caucasus is characterized by a great variety of natural conditions and, as a result, natural landscapes. A distinctive feature of this territory is the peculiar structure of altitudinal zonality, caused by the existence of local systems of the intermontane hollows and ridges bordering its mountain structure. The insignificant height of ridges in combination with a peculiar climate lead to the formation of a spatial structure of landscapes which differs both from the adjacent plains and from higher parts of the mountain structure. Such transitional areas are called ecotones and are highlighted as a separate category of natural territorial complex. Most authors of the landscape maps of the Northern Caucasus territory, distinguish only two higher classifying landscapes units (classes) here — plains and mountains, which correspond to relief megaforms. However, there is a transitional zone from the plain to the mountains within the Northern Caucasus, which was called "foothill landscapes". A complex of the quantitative and qualitative parameters in combination with significant spatial mosaic of locations and temporal variability of climatic conditions form peculiar features of the low-mountain foothill landscapes of the Northern Caucasus, which should be assigned into a peculiar classification unit.
What is usually customary in social sciences, especially in international relations, is to events in different parts of the world (Middle East, Central Asia, the Caucasus, Europe, etc.) of theories (realism, idealism, constructivism, post-colonialism, etc.)its application to global issues.
Can not the other way around? In other words, cannot a theory be created from events and facts such as war, conflict and alliance of regional and global nature?
Economic policy in the European Union's Eastern and Southern neighborhood is embedded in the frameworks offered by EU's enlargement and neighborhood policies. Under these frameworks, regional development and policy play a significant role, as is evident in the current introduction of the smart specialization approach to regional innovation policy in the Western Balkans, Turkey, Ukraine, Moldova, and Tunisia. Further approaches of regional development relevant to EU enlargement and neighborhood countries include the LEADER/CLLD approach, and building capacities in organizations such as regional development agencies according to experiences made in EU member states represents an important complement for the introduction of policy approaches. In this context, the special issue seeks contributions that deal with aspects of regional analysis, policy approaches, and institutional or organizational questions in EU enlargement or neighborhood countries and their regions.

I study contact and regional metamorphism of Dizi series, Great Caucasus, Georgia. I have a problem only with analytical part of my work. And It would be great to share knowledge and experience with someone who works in metamorphism.

Dear Laia and Anna,
I find your project very interesting. Please let me know if diasporic processes are relevant to your approach.
