Ecology of Siberian Taimen Hucho taimen in the Lake Baikal Basin
Taimen conservation in the Baikal region is impossible without adoption and implementation of a dedicated rehabilitation program that includes the protection of remaining populations and habitat, and possibly introduction of hatchery-reared fish in selected areas where habitat remains, but parental stocks are low.

Characteristics of melanomacrophage centers in the liver and spleen of the roach Rutilus rutilus (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) in Lake Kotokel during the Haff disease outbreak
Characteristics of morphology and number of melanomacrophage centers (MMCs) in the liver and spleen of the roach Rutilus rutilus and the amount of pigments in MMCs during the Haff disease outbreakExpand
Fatty acid composition of blubber of the Baikal seal Phoca sibirica and its marine relative, the ringed seal P. hispida
The selection of FA during deposition in the inner blubber was similar for the Baikal and ringed seal species, even though there was a large difference between the general FA composition of the freshwater and marine lipids. Expand
Fatty acid profiles in different fish species in Lake Baikal
According to this study, dietary FAs are modified significantly through the metabolism of the fish to produce the species-specific FA composition necessary for the structural lipids of heart tissue and white muscle. Expand
Mercury content in muscles of fish of the Selenga River and lakes of its basin (Russia)
Differences between the muscle mercury contents in fish from lakes Gusinoye and Karasinoye and the Selenga River may indicate an inconsiderable income of mercury in aquatic ecosystems withExpand
Stock structure of Lake Baikal omul as determined by whole-body morphology
In Lake Baikal, three morphotypes of omul Coregonus autumnalis migratorius are recognized; the littoral, pelagic, and deep-water forms. Morphotype assignment is difficult, and similar to thatExpand
Composition of leucocytes of the head kidney of the crucian carp (Carassius auratus gibelio, Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) as affected by invasion of cestode Digramma interrupta (Cestoda;
The composition of leucocytes of the head kidney is studied in the crucian carps (Carassius auratus) either contaminated or uncontaminated with Digramma interrupta and the immune suppression of proliferation of blasts and young forms of eosinophils was revealed. Expand
Hematological and immunological properties of herring gull (Larus argentatus) nestlings experimentally infected with Diphyllobothrium dendriticum (Cestoda: Pseudophyllidae)
It is shown, that the changes in hematologic and immune responses of the obligate definitive host provide for the mutual host-parasite adaptation. Expand
