Monitoring

  • Environmental monitoring in the Kerzhensky Reserve is being developed as part of the topic “Study of the natural course of the processes taking place in the nature and revealing the interrelationships between separate parts of the natural complex”, the results of which are annually summarized in the next edition of the “Chronicle of Nature”.

    At present, both the biota of the reserve and abiotic indicators of the environment are monitored. A separate unit is the study of the rhythmics of natural processes.

    At present, both the biota of the reserve and abiotic indicators of the environment are monitored. A separate unit is the study of the rhythmics of natural processes.

    Environmental indicators:

    Weather

    • · Atmospheric temperature
    • · Atmospheric humidity
    • · Atmospheric pressure
    • · Insolation
    • · Temperature near the ground
    • · Soil freezing (up to 1 m depth)
    • · Wind velocity
    • · Wind direction

    Water

    • · Monitoring of high security water bodies
    • · Water level
    • · Water temperature
    • · Electrical conductivity of water
    • · pH index of water
    • · Сolour of water
    • · Oxygen content
    • · Biological oxygen demand in 5 days (BOD5)

    Landscape

    • · Monitoring of alluviation in the floodplain of the Kerzhenets River
    • · Changes in the shoreline of the Kerzhenets River

    Determination of the thickness and composition of alluvial deposits in the floodplain of the Kerzhenets River

    • · Changes in the shoreline of the Chernaya River

    Biota

    Flora

    • · Identification of new plant species
    • · Estimation of the population of rare red-listed plant species
    • · Estimation of the population of weed species

    Vegetation

    • · Yielding capacity of berries
    • · Fruiting of fungi

    Fauna

    • · Estimation of the number of game species of mammals through winter route census
    • · Monitoring of mammals and birds within the reserve using trail cameras
    • · Monitoring the behavior of wild reindeer in aviaries using trail cameras

    The number of grouse and other semiaquatic mammals in the floodplain of the Kerzhenets River

    • · Accounting for beaver settlements
    • · The number of fowl-like birds
    • · Accounting for the population of passerine birds
    • · Accounting for birds of prey and owls
    • · Accounting for semiaquatic birds on the Kerzhenets River
    • · The number of terrestrial invertebrates (the number of xylophages in the coniferous forests of the reserve)
    • · The number of aquatic invertebrates (structural characteristics of aquatic organisms communities of water bodies, zooplankton of the reserve monitoring lakes)

    The rhythmics of natural processes

    • · Calendar of nature
    • · Meteorological periodization of the year
    • · Phenological periodization of the year
    • · Hydrological periodization of the year
