Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): IPAE UB RAS was founded in 1944 and makes multidisciplinary biological studies on the regularities of functioning, evolution and stability of biological systems at population, community and ecosystem levels in natural and anthropogenically changed environments of the Urals and adjacent territories of the Northern Eurasia. The staff tackles problems of applied ecology: rational nature management; ecological regulation; bio-indication; ecotoxicology; radioecology; environmental impact assessment and ecological prediction. Scientific structural department of the IPAE UB RAS consists of 13 laboratories and includes 294 collaborators with 193 scientific researchers. “The Russian Journal of Ecology” is produced there.
Expertise offered To detect shifts in the ecosystem caused by its radioactive contamination, is conducted a study of the metabolic homeostasis in natural populations of small mammals inhabiting the East-Ural radioactive trace. The fotokolorimetric, spectrometric and titrimetric methods of biochemical analysis are used. Results of research are aimed at identifying ways and strategies of physiological adaptation to anthropogenous habitat, which allows to predicting the remote effects of long technogenic influences on the organism and populations of mammals. Offers from partner(s) - other methods of assessment of physiological adaptation to the level technogenic influence, specific markers, theoretical approaches to the interpretation of adaptive responses of the individual and population, extrapolation of results to the human and in general on the population.
Scientific keywords Mechanisms of physiological adaptation Metabolic homeostasis Territories contaminated with radionuclides Populations of small mammals Metabolic effects of environmental stressors
