Yugra State University hosted the VI International Meeting on the Biology of Sphagnum on 1-11 August. This was the first time when it was held in Russia. 35 researchers from different countries studied distribution of numerous Sphagnum species and their ecology in Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Ugra.

On June, 6-9 Yugra State University hosted the International symposium “Multidisciplinary experimental research of mire ecosystems and climate change in Western Siberia”, which attracted scientists from Moscow State University, Siberian Division of RAS and University of Orleans and CNRS, France. All of them are involved into the experiment conducted at Mukhrino field station of Yugra State University since 2012. Continue reading
Summer School “Functioning of boreal raised bogs of West Siberia and their response to climate change” will be organized by Yugra State University, Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia, University of Helsinki, Finland and Lund University, Sweden with support of the Nordic-Russian Cooperation Programme in Education and Research.
The School will take place on August 26 – September 4, 2016. The program will include field trips, taking measurements, laboratory work, data analysis, a workshop in micrometeorological greenhouse gas measurement techniques (eddy-covariance) etc. Participants can get scholarships to cover travel expenses and fee. More information is available here.
Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI) has counted the two-year impact factor of the journal “Environmental Dynamics and Global Climate Change” of Yugra State University. In 2015 it made 0.692 having doubled in comparison with the previous period (two-year impact factor in 2013 was 0.364).
The impact factor (IF) of an academic journal is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in that journal. It is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. In any given year, the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years. Continue reading
West Siberia is a land of endless Sphagnum mires that cover vast areas in between rivers. Bogs cover over 50% of the West Siberian Plain reaching 80-90% in certain areas. However, only few Sphagnum species are dominating on the most part of the area. To see as many species as possible, field trips of the VI International Meeting on the Biology of Sphagnum have been planned in a way to visit diverse minerotrophic mires with the sphagnum mosses.

Participants of the Sphagnum Symposium-2016 in Khanty-Mansiysk are invited to start Sphagnum meeting in the Saint-Petersburg region. Two days of excursions will provide possibilities to see Sphagnum species with sub-oceanic tendency of distribution which are absent or rare in West Siberia – Sphagnum auriculatum, S. subnitens, S. rubellum, S. quinquefarium, S.cuspidatum, S.tenellum and other more widespread species.
