Laboratory of Ornithology

HEAD OF THE LABORATORY

chief researcher Gennadiy N. Simkin

 

The Laboratory deals with Ecological Monitoring of various bird populations throughout the whole Russia including Taimyr peninsula and the Far East. Especial attention is paid to endangered species. One of the research topics of the Lab is the Ecology of Bird Populations of Large Cities. The members actively communicate with Russian Bird Conservation Union. Another branch of research is the structure and function of bird songs and the development of bird acoustic sensory system.
