    Expériences de Recherche / Research experience:

    When Moscow post - graduate course having been finished in 1980. I received the candidate’s degree. I wo--rked on the theme: “Anthropogenic landscapes of the North East”. The landscapes ha-ving been classified and practical proposals on their restoration and recultivation worked out I was awarded All Union Exhibition of National Economic Achievement Silver Medal in 1998. Then I worked on the theme: “Biological grounds of wildlife reconstruction and pro-tec-tion” which resulted in the foundamental monograf “Wild ungulates of the USSR North East", 1990, 490 pages. The following themes I worked on were “Structure, organization and functionning of the Far East ecosystems”, and “Protection strategy for the North Pa-ci-fic, as for a nature complex part of the Earth planet indivisible ecosystem”. And I reported the latter theme at the congresses in Mexico and Australia. In 1994 I defended the thesis on “Wild ungulates of the North Asia and their population spatial structure”. Ecology of five species - musk-deer, moose, reindeer, snow sheep and musk-ox-nas considered as well as their Beringian links between North Asia and North America. Based on 26 - year - long collected materials the fundamental monograf “Beringia: History and Evolution” was writ-ten in commot with Biology Sciences Doctor Kozhevnikov Y.P. and in 1996 it was issued by the Nauka Publishing House.
    Up to 1970 I worked as a leading constructor in a specific office. Since 1972 I had been working as a ranger of the Regional Hunting Management Department in Ana-dyr, and lafer in 1974 I began to work in the North Biological problems Institute, then in the Landscape Management and Nature Protection Laboratory of the Sciences Academy (Ma-gadan), first as head engeneer, then as juniour research worker, later as a seniour research worker.

In 1993 I began the work to form and establish the Russian part of the Beringia International park (Russia - Chukotka + the USA - Alaska). The park is supposed to be uni-ted in future in order to be managed by both sides and its nature resouries of the North Pacific are planned to be rationallu used.
