Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): Institute of Plant and Animal Ecology, Ural Branch of RAS (before 1964 - Institute of Biology, Ural Branch of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR) was established in June 18, 1944. Today the Institute is the largest research institute of biological profile in the Urals region, one of the leaders of the fundamental works in the field of ecology and environmental protection in the Russian Federation. The general direction of scientific research is to study of patterns of organization, functioning, dynamics, evolution and sustainability of living systems at the level of populations, communities and ecosystems. Joint Research Laboratory of GIS-technologies in the field of forest sciences and ecology was established in 2002, the Ural State Forestry University (Order № 1A on January 8, 2002) and the Institute of Plant and Animal Ecology, Ural Branch of RAS (Order № 12 dated February 12, 2002) to research and resolve practical problems in forest sciences and ecology using GIS-technologies and improvement training of foresters.
Expertise offered The influence of industrial air pollution and global climate change on forest ecosystems; processing and analyzing of spatial data, including remote sensing data; spatial analysis and raster modeling in geographic information systems; mathematical and statistical modeling; development of algorithms of image analysis; automated analysis of images on macro and micro levels; database development; development of Internet-aware information systems
Scientific keywords dendroecology; climate and air pollution; GIS-technologies and modeling; automated image analysis; Internet-aware applications

Description of previous and present experience in International Cooperation Project participants took part in two international projects funded by the INTAS Foundation (projects: No. 93-1645 and No.01-0052). During the first project it was studied the effect of industrial air pollutions of copper smelting plant on forest ecosystems in the Middle Urals (Russia). The second project was carried out extensive studies of the effect of climate change on mountain-tundra communities in the Polar, Northern and Southern Urals (Russia). As a result of this research, the regularity of spatial-temporal dynamics of forest vegetation in three Ural regions in the second half of XX century was studied. During these projects huge sets of forest plant parameters, climate data and environmental pollution characteristics were collected, processed and analyzed.
