Zoological research of EZ and ZU(O)R for value estimation of the separate parts under the contract of system development of reserved objects

Period: 2009

Objective: territory identification of the rare (“red book” animals) species in the territory of EZ and ZU(O)R.

This is initiative course of the IRL research activity, started in prior years. Development of the reserve management and reserved objects system in region is impossible without the knowledge what species and in which regions live. Rare species existence (especially “red book” animals) is the most important criterion of the reserved lands. That’s why liquidation of the information lacunae in that direction has unexaggerated meaning for the substantiation of natural value of one or the other territory. Research results of the year 2009 as also of previous years take on new importance in view of publication of the Ukrainian Red Book new edition.
