Brown bear population structure in core and periphery : analysis of hunting statistics from Russian Karelia and Finland
Russian Karelia is inhabited by a dense, stable brown bear (Ursus arctos) population. To the west of this core area, in Finland, bear numbers have increased roughly 5-fold since the late 1960s, butExpand
Challenges and science-based implications for modern management and conservation of European ungulate populations
Wildlife management systems face growing challenges to cope with increasingly complex interactions between wildlife populations, the environment and human activities. In this position statement, weExpand
Biochemical adaptations to dive-derived hypoxia/reoxygenation in semiaquatic rodents.
TLDR
The results suggest that beaver, nutria and muskrat have distinct mechanisms of adaptation to diving hypoxia/reoxygenation and support the hypothesis that semiaquatic mammals are the intermediate animals that help to define which potential selection factors and mechanical constraints may have directed the evolution of the aquatic forms.

The Mercury Content and Antioxidant System in Insectivorous Animals (Insectivora, Mammalia) and Rodents (Rodentia, Mammalia) of Various Ecogenesis Conditions
TLDR
The results indicate that mercury accumulation in the tissue depends on the age, tissue type, and diet of the species, and a correlation between mercury accumulation and catalase activity in the kidneys of the animals studied was found. Expand
Ecological status of bats (Chiroptera) in winter roosts in eastern Fennoscandia
TLDR
Data of field observations on bats hibernating in the Republic of Karelia is presented to reveal the species composition of the animals, the pattern of their spatial arrangement, mortality, and specific regional features and general trends of their hibernation. Expand
Antioxidant defense system in tissues of semiaquatic mammals
Activity of antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase and catalase) and low molecular weight antioxidants (tocopherol and retinol) was studied in tissues of 8 semiaquatic mammalian species. InExpand
Tocopherol content in tissues of mammals of different ecogenesis
Concentration of vitamin E (α-tocopherol) was studied in liver, kidney, heart, and skeletal muscle of 12 mammalian species, of which nine inhabited under natural conditions, while three wereExpand
[SPECIFICITY OF CONTENT AND MORPHOLOGY OF PERIPHERAL BLOOD CELLS IN THREE BAT SPECIES OF KARELIA DURING HIBERNATION].
TLDR
A higher content of lymphocytes, eosinophils and basophils was revealed in the northern bat featuring an increased resistance to cold as compared to the Brandt's bat and the brown long-eared bat. Expand
Morphology and Composition of Peripheral Blood Cells during Hibernation in Bats (Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae) of Northwestern Russia
TLDR
Interspecific differences in the morphology of neutrophils, the total number, the absolute and relative content of certain types of leukocytes, and the size of the erythrocyte surface area have been established. Expand
Hematological Parameters in Hibernating Eptesicus nilssonii (Mammalia: Chiroptera) Collected in Northern European Russia
TLDR
Hibernating E. nilssonii were found to have a low total WBC count similar to other hibernators; no significant variation was noted during hibernation, and differential leukocyte count showed a significant reduction in total monocytes in winter. Expand
