In brown semidesert soil, thermophilic prokaryotic organisms identified as Streptomyces roseolilacinus and Silanimonas lenta were shown to play the main role in chitin transformation at 50°C. The phylogenetic positions of the isolated dominant chitinolytic microorganisms were determined on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequencing. The consumption of chitin as(More)
Imaging plays an important role in experimental fluid dynamics. It is equally important both for scientific research and a range of industrial applications. It is known, however, that estimated velocity fields of fluids often suffer from various types of corruptions like missing data, for instance, that make their physical interpretation questionable. We(More)
The dynamics of carbon dioxide emission from soil was studied during chitinolytic succession induced by humidification and chitin introduction at different temperatures (5, 27, and 50°C) using gas chromatography. The abundance and biomass of the chitinolytic bacterial and actinomycete complex in soil were evaluated by luminescent microscopy. Active(More)
The structural and functional specificity of the chitinolytic microbial complex changes dramatically depending on the incubation temperature of soil microcosms. It was shown that the highest rates of chitin degradation occurred in desert soils at high temperatures (50°C); in the moderate and northern zones, these rates peaked at lower temperatures (5°C).(More)
A computational method for estimating specific activity of chitin decomposition by microorganisms is proposed. Spectrophotometric and gas chromatographic methods have been used to determine the rates of chitinase production, biomass accumulation, and carbon dioxide emission by pure cultures of microorganisms grown on a chitin-containing medium.

High-speed image measurements of fluid flows define an important field of research in experimental fluid mechanics and the related industry. Numerous competing methods have been developed for both 2D and 3D measurements. Estimates of fluid flow velocity fields are often corrupted, however, due to various deficiencies of the imaging process, making the(More)
Data on changes in the weed infestation of spring wheat crops during transition to No-Till technology under conditions of the forest steppe zone of Western Siberia are provided. The features of formation of a weed component are revealed depending on the predecessor and the level of agrochemicalization.
