To identify the main factors that affected a catastrophic decrease in the population of the saiga antelope in the Northwest Pre-Caspian region from 800 000 heads in the middle of the past century to about 5000 heads in Spring 2012, long-term data about the saiga antelope biology and the condition of its habitat were analyzed. The results obtained by modern procedures can be used to plan measures for preserving and restoring the population of the saiga antelope in Russia.

High Allelic Diversity of the DRB3 Gene (MHC Class II) in Saiga (Saiga tatarica) L., 1766), Obtained by Next Generation Sequencing Method
TLDR
The nucleotide sequences of the alleles of the DRB3 gene of the major histocompatibility complex (class II) of saiga antelope are described and a high degree of heterozygosity is found, consistent with the hypothesis of overdominance ofheterozygotes. Expand
Transformation of Food Lignocellulose Compounds in the Digestive Tract of Saigatatarica: Functional and Comparative Aspects
TLDR
It was shown that in S. tatarica successful fiber reduction depended not only on the dental apparatus, but also on the enzyme system of the species, and the most effective cellulose fiber reduction in the digestive tract was observed in the East Caucasian tur, while in the Siberian ibex it was the least effective.

What do wild saiga antelopes tell us about the relative roles of the two brain hemispheres in social interactions?
TLDR
It is clear that both brain hemispheres play significant roles in social responses, while their relative contribution is likely determined by a complex set of motivational and emotional factors rather than a simple dichotomous distinction such as approach versus withdrawal motivation. Expand
