Yemelyanova L.G. EVALUATION OF DISTRIBUTION OF THE RARE BIRD SPECIES IN THE REGIONAL ARID BIOMES OF RUSSIA AS THE BASIS FOR THEIR PROTECTION // Arid ecosystems. 2019. V. 25. № 1 (78). P. 69-78. | PDF
The biodiversity of the rare, endangered and restoring bird species (of the Red List of Russian Federation and International Union for Conservation of Nature, 2018) was evaluated for the arid and semiarid regional biomes of Russia. It has shown that those biomes are inhabited with 104 protected species out of total 118 species, living in Russia. A group of rare species was determined, which is poorly provided or not provided at all with proper protection in the nature reserves in arid and semiarid regional biomes of Russia. The results of this work can be used for evaluation of the regional biodiversity of the rare and endangered bird species and development of proper measures to improve their protection.
