A highly inbred, long-term selected for low fitness strain LA of Drosophila melanogaster possesses a significant mutational load and unusually high rates of spontaneous mutability as revealed by CyL/Pm method. Our results indicate that during cross of CyL/Pm to LA strains, destabilization of copia-like and mobile elements and induction of H-E hybrid(More)
The ecological “compensation principle” enunciated by Yu.I. Chernov, who suggested a higher level of compensatory diversity in communities depleted in composition, proved to be also applicable to a single population, as demonstrated in a model rodent species, mole vole with mono- and polymorphic coat color, using the methods of geometric morphometrics. The(More)
It has been accepted for inclusion in Erforschung biologischer Ressourcen der Mongolei / Exploration into the Biological Resources of Mongolia by an authorized administrator of DigitalCommons@University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Abstract The Central Asian high-mountain or rock voles of the genus Alticola Blanford, 1881 are one of the least studied groups of(More)
Bone remains of birds from a location of the middle Subboreal period and from three locations of the early Subatlantic period were studied on the Ustyurt plateau (Kazakhstan). Three out of 17 avian species that have been identified (Phalacrocorax pygmaeus, Falco peregrinus, and Nyctea scandiaca) proved to be absent in the modern fauna of the region. Our(More)
The genetic diversity of the Uralian moose population and the role of the Ural region in the phylogeographic structure of the European moose were evaluated based on sequence polymorphisms of the mtDNA control region. The nucleotide diversity of the Ural moose was low, whereas haplotype diversity was rather high. It was found that the haplotype pool of the(More)
The functional properties of the invasive Heracleum sosnowskyi were compared with those of the native Heracleum sibiricum. The leaf and root traits, as well as those of a whole plant and of the mycorrhiza formation, were studied. H. sosnowskyi can fulfill the high-productivity potential only under the optimum availability of resources (especially water),(More)
