Leader – Morozova R.M. (Forest Research Institute of the Karelian Science Centre, Russian Academy of Sciences).
The project is aimed at investigating the interrelations between biodiversity and diversity of soils in the Eastern Fennoscandia.
Partners: Forest Research Institute of the Karelian Science Centre, Russian Academy of Sciences.
INTAS project “Polluting metals in Russian terrestrial
ecosystems: chemistry, dynamics,
The project is aimed at characterizing the concentrations of heavy
metals and forms of their migration in soils and soil waters along the
gradients of airborne industrial pollution by emissions from the “Severonickel”
and “Pechenganickel” smelters, investigating the features
of microorganisms’ metabolism, assessing their structural and
functional diversity and biomass, tolerance, studying the interrelations
between soil parameters and state of microbial communities using the
methods of mathematical modeling.
Leader – Vladychensky A.S. (Moscow State University)
The project is aimed at investigating the impact of copper-nickel and apatite-nepheline production on characteristics of soils on the Kola peninsula with participation of students and post-graduate students from the Moscow State University and Apatity Branch of Petrozavodsk State University.
Partners: Faculty of Soil Science, Moscow State University,
