Seroprevalence of hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and GB virus-C infections in Siberia. (1/177)

We studied the seroprevalence of hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and GB virus-C (GBV-C) infections in 348 Siberian natives who lived in the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia. Of 348 samples studied, the seroprevalence of HBsAg and anti-HBs were 11.8% (41 of 348 samples) and 35.9% (125 of 348 samples), respectively. The prevalence of HCV infection was 1.4% (5 of 348 samples), and that of GBV-C RNA, using RT-PCR methods, was 7.5% (26 of 348 samples). In Siberia, the prevalences of HBV and GBV-C infections were about tenfold higher than those in Japan. The prevalence of HBsAg in subjects under 50 years of age was significantly higher than that in those over 50 years old (P < 0.05). Because HBV infection is highly endemic in Siberia, we propose that the community-based mass immunization must be conducted as soon as possible in this area.  (+info)

Thiorhodospira sibirica gen. nov., sp. nov., a new alkaliphilic purple sulfur bacterium from a Siberian soda lake. (2/177)

A new purple sulfur bacterium was isolated from microbial films on decaying plant mass in the near-shore area of the soda lake Malyi Kasytui (pH 9.5, 0.2% salinity) located in the steppe of the Chita region of south-east Siberia. Single cells were vibrioid- or spiral-shaped (3-4 microns wide and 7-20 microns long) and motile by means of a polar tuft of flagella. Internal photosynthetic membranes were of the lamellar type. Lamellae almost filled the whole cell, forming strands and coils. Photosynthetic pigments were bacteriochlorophyll a and carotenoids of the spirilloxanthin group. The new bacterium was strictly anaerobic. Under anoxic conditions, hydrogen sulfide and elemental sulfur were used as photosynthetic electron donors. During growth on sulfide, sulfur globules were formed as intermediate oxidation products. They were deposited outside the cytoplasm of the cells, in the peripheral periplasmic space and extracellularly. Thiosulfate was not used. Carbon dioxide, acetate, pyruvate, propionate, succinate, fumarate and malate were utilized as carbon sources. Optimum growth rates were obtained at pH 9.0 and optimum temperature was 30 degrees C. Good growth was observed in a mineral salts medium containing 5 g sodium bicarbonate l-1 without sodium chloride. The new bacterium tolerated up to 60 g sodium chloride l-1 and up to 80 g sodium carbonates l-1. Growth factors were not required. The DNA G + C composition was 56.0-57.4 mol%. Based on physiological, biochemical and genetic characteristics, the newly isolated bacterium is recognized as a new species of a new genus with the proposed name Thiorhodospira sibirica.  (+info)

Natural experimental models: the global search for biomedical paradigms among traditional, modernizing, and modern populations. (3/177)

During the past four decades, biomedical scientists have slowly begun to recognize the unique opportunities for studying biomedical processes, disease etiology, and mechanisms of pathogenesis in populations with unusual genetic structures, physiological characteristics, focal endemic disease, or special circumstances. Such populations greatly extend our research capabilities and provide a natural laboratory for studying relationships among biobehavioral, genetic, and ecological processes that are involved in the development of disease. The models presented illustrate three different types of natural experiments: those occurring in traditionally living, modernizing, and modern populations. The examples are drawn from current research that involves population mechanisms of adaptation among East African Turkana pastoralists; a search for etiology and mechanisms of pathogenesis of an emerging disease among the Yakut people of Siberia; and psychosocial stress, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease in women working outside the home in New York City and among subpopulations in Hawaii. The models in general, and the examples in specific, represent natural laboratories in which relatively small intrapopulation differences and large interpopulation differences can be used to evaluate health and disease outcomes.  (+info)

Biodosimetry results obtained by various cytogenetic methods and electron spin resonance spectrometry among inhabitants of a radionuclide contaminated area around the siberian chemical plant (Tomsk-7). (4/177)

On April 6, 1993, near the town of Tomsk (Russia) there was an accident at the Siberian Chemical Plant (SCP) which resulted in extensive contamination of an area of 250 km(2) to the north of SCP with long-lived radionuclides such as (239)Pu, (137)Cs and (90)Sr. Cytogenetic methods and electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrometry of tooth enamel were used to estimate the radiation doses received by the population. The ESR signal intensity and the chromosomal aberration frequency in lymphocytes of the tooth donors showed a good correlation. The data showed that 15% of the inhabitants of the Samus settlement received a radiation dose >90 cGy. The exceptions were results of an examination of fishermen, where ESR gave high values (80-210 cGy) but both the chromosome assay and the cytokinesis block micronucleus method gave lower ones (8-52 cGy). A large increase in chromosome damage was observed in people born between 1961 and 1969. It was found that during these years several serious accidents at the Siberian Chemical Plant had occurred causing radiation pollution of the area. The number of cells with chromosome aberrations was significantly less among the people arriving in Samus after 1980. We found good correlations between the level of carotene consumption and a decrease in frequency of both micronuclei in binucleated lymphocytes (r = 0.68, P < 0.01) and chromatid aberrations (r = 0.61, P < 0.01) among the inhabitants. We also examined the inhabitants of Samus for opisthorchis infection, which was present in 30% of the population. The Samus inhabitants affected by Opisthorchis felineus showed significantly increased levels of micronuclei in binucleated lymphocytes and chromatid aberrations as compared with the controls.  (+info)

Chromosome breakage at sites of oncogenes in a population accidentally exposed to radioactive chemical pollution. (5/177)

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the level of aberrations at fragile sites of chromosomes in peripheral blood lymphocytes of the population of an area polluted with radionuclides, following an accident at the Siberian Chemical Plant. We carried out the micronucleus test to screen people with radiation-related cytogenetic effects. Of the 1246 inhabitants of the settlement of Samus examined, 148 showed a significantly increased frequency of micronucleated erythrocytes and were selected for chromosome analysis as a radiation-exposed group. Additional analysis was carried out on 40 patients with gastric cancer and atrophic gastritis with stage II-III epithelial dysplasia. Eighty six individuals from a non-polluted area were used as a control group. Chromosomal breaks and exchanges occurred preferentially in chromosomes 3 and 6 among radiation-exposed persons and patients. The regions 3p14-25 and 6p23 were damaged most often. There was a tendency to preferential involvement of q21-25 of chromosome 6 in patients with gastric cancer and atrophic gastritis. Specific damage at certain chromosome sites was observed in the radiation-exposed population as well as in patients with gastric cancer. Most often this damage was located near oncogene loci, which could imply that chromosome damage induced by radiation is likely to be a predisposing factor to the expression of oncogenes and malignant transformation of cells in exposed individuals.  (+info)

Y-Chromosome evidence for a northward migration of modern humans into Eastern Asia during the last Ice Age. (6/177)

The timing and nature of the arrival and the subsequent expansion of modern humans into eastern Asia remains controversial. Using Y-chromosome biallelic markers, we investigated the ancient human-migration patterns in eastern Asia. Our data indicate that southern populations in eastern Asia are much more polymorphic than northern populations, which have only a subset of the southern haplotypes. This pattern indicates that the first settlement of modern humans in eastern Asia occurred in mainland Southeast Asia during the last Ice Age, coinciding with the absence of human fossils in eastern Asia, 50,000-100,000 years ago. After the initial peopling, a great northward migration extended into northern China and Siberia.  (+info)

Metabolic activity of permafrost bacteria below the freezing point. (7/177)

Metabolic activity was measured in the laboratory at temperatures between 5 and -20 degrees C on the basis of incorporation of (14)C-labeled acetate into lipids by samples of a natural population of bacteria from Siberian permafrost (permanently frozen soil). Incorporation followed a sigmoidal pattern similar to growth curves. At all temperatures, the log phase was followed, within 200 to 350 days, by a stationary phase, which was monitored until the 550th day of activity. The minimum doubling times ranged from 1 day (5 degrees C) to 20 days (-10 degrees C) to ca. 160 days (-20 degrees C). The curves reached the stationary phase at different levels, depending on the incubation temperature. We suggest that the stationary phase, which is generally considered to be reached when the availability of nutrients becomes limiting, was brought on under our conditions by the formation of diffusion barriers in the thin layers of unfrozen water known to be present in permafrost soils, the thickness of which depends on temperature.  (+info)

Thioalkalicoccus limnaeus gen. nov., sp. nov., a new alkaliphilic purple sulfur bacterium with bacteriochlorophyll b. (8/177)

Four strains of purple sulfur bacteria containing bacteriochlorophyll b were isolated from cyanobacterial mats of soda lakes in the steppe of south-east Siberia, Russia. Cells of all strains were cocci without gas vesicles. Eventually, cells with flagella were seen in the electron microscope, but motile cells were observed very rarely in cultures. Internal photosynthetic membranes were of the tubular type. Photosynthetic pigments were bacteriochlorophyll b and carotenoids with spectral characteristics similar to 3,4,3',4'-tetrahydrospirilloxanthin. The bacteria were obligately phototrophic and strictly anaerobic. Hydrogen sulfide and elemental sulfur were used as photosynthetic electron donors. Thiosulfate was not used. During growth on sulfide, sulfur globules were formed as intermediate oxidation products, deposited inside the cells and centrally located. In the presence of sulfide and sodium bicarbonate, acetate, malate, propionate, pyruvate, succinate, fumarate and yeast extract were photoassimilated. Growth factors were not required. The new bacterium is an obligate alkaliphile growing at pH 8-10 with an optimum at pH 9. It showed good growth up to 6.0% sodium chloride and up to 8.5% sodium carbonates. Phenotypically, it is similar to Thiococcus pfennigii, but different by virtue of its alkaliphily and salt tolerance. The DNA G+C content was 63.6-64.8 mol %, compared to 69.4-69.9 mol % for Thiococcus pfennigii. The 16S rDNA sequence of strain A26T was approximately 92% similar to that of Thiococcus pfennigii DSM 226 and therefore a new genus and species name, Thioalkalicoccus limnaeus gen. nov. and sp. nov., are proposed for the new bacterium.  (+info)

For most Americans, Siberia is a place for the exiled or the condemned, not the holidaymaker. Its land mass encompasses 1/12th of the planets surface area and is chock full of natural resources, but remains mysterious and misunderstood.. The prolific American writer Ian Frazier, author of ten books and a regular contributor to the New Yorker, made five trips to Siberia between 1993-2009 and chronicled his adventures in Travels in Siberia. His work was recognized as a notable book of the year in the New York Times and made it onto the best books of the year list in the Washington Post, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Christian Science Monitor, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and Kansas City Star.. You wrote that in your early 40s you were infected with Russia. Can you describe your motivation for taking these trips to Siberia?. It was a general fascination with the country. After the fall of the Soviet Union, all of these parts of Russia that were previously inaccessible were suddenly open. ...
In southern West Siberia, as many as four Leptidea Billberg, 1820 species are present sympatrically: L. amurensis (Ménétriés, 1859), L. morsei (Ménétriés, 1859), L. sinapis (Linnaeus, 1758) and L. juvernica Williams, 1946. The two latter were recently recognised as nearly sibling species on morphological and molecular characters. Specimens intermediate as to their subtle diagnostic characters occurring in West Siberia and elsewhere were interpreted as resulted from limited introgression. This supposition was tested via populational morphological and molecular analysis of spring brood specimens of all the four species taken from a limited (4.5 × 0.2 km) area in the suburbs of Novosibirsk. The samples were analysed with respect to the genitalic morphology, external characters, three nuclear (CAD, H1 gene and ITS2) and one mitochondrial (COI) molecular markers, infection of the intracellular maternally inherited bacterial symbiont Wolbachia Hertig, 1836 and its wsp gene coding for a hypervariable

As a medicine hunter, I travel the world in search of cures, plant-based therapeutics for a variety of health needs. About six times per year, I plan a research trip, usually to some far-flung land. My investigations in the field have led to heightened awareness of a variety of beneficial plants such as kava and maca and noni and tamanu, which are now popular herbal supplements, and to some candidates for new drug development.. Believing that Siberia, with its immense wealth of botanical riches, is the new medicinal frontier, I have conducted research there on a couple of occasions. Siberia is 80% the size of the United States, with regional diversity ranging from scenic mountains to tundra. The area I was headed to, central Siberia, is home to the Altay, a 100,000 square mile region of mountains, rushing rivers, and over 3,000 lakes. The Altay is also a primary collection area for rhodiola rosea, also known as golden root. A very well studied adaptogen, rhodiola enhances immune function, ...

This dataset represents a literature compilation of carbon isotope data of four terrestrial organic carbon pools, (1) litter and organic layers in northern Russia, Scandinavia, Canada and Alaska (¹³C and ¹⁴C); (2) mineral active layers and non-permafrost soils in Siberia (¹³C and ¹⁴C); (3) exposures of Holocene peat and thermokarst deposits in Siberia (¹⁴C); (4) exposures of Ice Complex deposits in Siberia (¹⁴C). The dataset has been used to quantify the contribution of carbon from different sources to dissolved and particulate organic carbon in large Siberian rivers using statistical source apportionment.
I mentioned recently that one of our siberians has had to come back to us for rehoming. I have managed to get some pictures now he is settled and would like to share them here. Gus is a wonderful big black smoke male and a gentle giant. He weighs around 7kg. He was the first druzhina baby born here five years ago and holds a special place in my heart. His owner has had to rehome home him due to her ill health and so it is a sad situation all round. He is a very friendly boy who loves to be with people and follow you around. He has had no health issues or bad habits and really just wants a loving indoor home with lots of cuddles and a warm cosy bed. Siberians are semi longhaired and so will need a good brush once or twice a week which he enjoys. Kittens can be a handful and very energetic. If you want a fully trained calm natured loving companion then an adult would be an ideal choice. Siberians are very hardy, believed to be one of the healthiest pedigree cat breeds and can live just as long as ...
To study the genetic forms and pathophysiology of arterial hypertension by evaluating plasma renin activity in the Shors, minor indigenous peoples inhabiting the south of Western Siberia. A single-stage study of indigenous (the Shors) and non-indigenous peoples living in the villages of Gornaya Shoria of the Kemerovo region in the south of Western Siberia was conducted in the period from 2013 to 2017. One thousand four hundred nine adults (901 Shors and 508 non-indigenous inhabitants) were recruited in the study using a continuous sampling plan. Arterial blood pressure was measured according to 2018 ESC/ESH guidelines for the management of arterial hypertension. All the respondents underwent clinical and instrumental examination. Plasma renin activity was determined by enzyme-linked immunoassay with the BRG kits (Germany). Polymorphisms of ACE (I/D, rs 4340), АGT (c.803 T | C, rs699), AGTR1 (А1166С, rs5186), ADRB1 (с.145A | G, Ser49Gly, rs1801252) and ADRA2B (I/D, rs 28,365,031) genes were tested

The phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) composition of microorganisms in podzolic soils of pine forests was studied in Central Siberia. The live microbial biomass in the 1-m mineral soil layer was found to gradually decrease with depth. Although the biomass decreased by half in the lower horizons, its content remained sufficiently high (12-14 nmol FAs/g soil). The coefficient of similarity in the fatty acid composition between the soils of forest and open (unforested) sites was 0.85. The coefficient of fatty acid richness in the mineral soil layer decreased with depth, while differences in fatty acid profiles increased.. ...

The ancestors of Native Americans came to the Americas from Asia. Some of them may have come to America 15,000 years ago when Alaska was connected to Siberia by the Bering land bridge. The earliest people in the Americas came from Siberia when there was an ice bridge across the Bering Strait. The cold but mainly grassy plain which connected Siberia with Canada is called Beringia. It is reckoned that a few thousand people arrived in Beringia from eastern Siberia during the Last Glacial Maximum before moving into the Americas sometime after 16,500 years before the present (BP).[1] This would have occurred as the American glaciers blocking the way southward melted,[2][3][4][5][6] but before the bridge was covered by the sea about 11,000 years BP. Before European colonization, Beringia was inhabited by the Yupik peoples on both sides of the straits. This culture remains in the region today, with others. In 2012, the governments of Russia and the United States announced a plan to formally establish ...

Synopsis During the late Pliocene and early Pleistocene Series of the Cenozoic Era, 3.6 to 2.2 Ma (million years ago), the Arctic was much warmer than it is at the present day (with summer temperatures from 3.6-3.4 Ma some 8oC warmer than today). That is a key finding of research into a lake-sediment core obtained in Eastern Siberia, which is of exceptional importance because it has provided the longest continuous late Cenozoic land-based sedimentary record thus far. The sedimentary sequence dates from recent times back to 3.6 Ma when the lake was formed by a large extraterrestrial impact. During the warm period, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations were close to those of today, at around 400 parts per million, indicative of a strong climate sensitivity signal in the Arctic, which has again warmed very rapidly in recent decades. The lake sediment record has thus provided us with a snapshot of how the Arctic may look in the near future.

Archeological and paleontological evidence suggests that South Siberia is an area where the most ancient contacts occurred between the members of Caucasoid and Mongoloid peoples. These contacts have substantially affected the racial type of most populations of Eurasia. Analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) inherited without recombination in the maternal line has shown that Southern Siberian populations have developed on a heterogeneous genetic basis. This is a result of not only the diversity of Mongoloid components that were either indigenous to the gene pools of Siberian populations since the Paleolithic Age or introduced in different periods of time from Central Europe and East Asia, but also the presence of the Caucasoid component expressed in different degrees in most populations that have contributed into this heterogeneity [1, 2]. The nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome inherited in the paternal line is another genetic system widely used for studying the population genetic history. ...

Neocomian reservoirs in the Mesozoic sedimentary cover of West Siberia have a complex geological structure. Their wedge-like (clinoform) geometry, with abrupt thickness changes and facies diversity (continental, shoreface, and pelagic deposits), causes difficulty in correlation between drilling- and seismics-based sand formations and clay caps. East-wedging (west-dipping) clinoforms consisting of interbedded clay and sand have the greatest reservoir potential in the West Siberian basin. Prediction of new oil and gas plays and their reservoir potential assessment require regional reconstructions in addition to local contour maps of individual zones and fields. However, the simulation technology which has been applied for years to Jurassic regional reservoirs is not fully applicable to the Neocomian clinoform sequences. Therefore we have adapted it correspondingly and suggest new tools to make due regard for the clinoform reservoir structure. The new approach has been tested through computing ...

He explores many aspects of this storied, often grim region, which takes up one-seventh of the land on earth. He writes about the geography, the resources, the native peoples, the history, the forty-below midwinter afternoons, the bugs. The book brims with Mongols, half-crazed Orthodox archpriests, fur seekers, ambassadors of the czar bound for Peking, tea caravans, German scientists, American prospectors, intrepid English nurses, and prisoners and exiles of every kind - from Natalie Lopukhin, banished by the czarina for copying her dresses; to the noble Decembrist revolutionaries of the 1820s; to the young men and women of the Peoples Will movement whose fondest hope was to blow up the czar; to those who met still-ungraspable suffering and death in the Siberian camps during Soviet times. More than just a historical travelog, this is also an account of Russia since the end of ...
No one in their right mind travels across Siberia in the middle of winter in a modified Russian jeep, with only a CD player (which breaks on the first day) for company. But Jacek Hugo-Bader is no ordinary traveler. As a fiftieth birthday present to himself, he sets out to drive from Moscow to Vladivostok, traversing a continent that is two and a half times bigger than America, awash with bandits, and not always fully equipped with roads. But if his mission sounds deranged it is in keeping with the land he is visiting. For Siberia is slowly dying - or, more accurately, killing itself. This is a traumatized post-Communist landscape peopled by the homeless and the hopeless: alcoholism is endemic, as are suicides, murders, and deaths from AIDS . As he gets to know these communities and speaks to the people, Hugo-Bader discovers a great deal of tragedy, but there is also dark humor to be found amongst the reindeer shepherds, the former hippies, the modern-day rappers, the homeless and the sick, the ...
Air from Siberia - yes, Siberia - is heading toward a huge chunk of the United States and it could set record-low temperatures from Texas to New England. Parts of the Northeast were already hit with snow, with Erie, Pennsylvania seeing its first measurable snow of the season.. National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Donofrio said Saturday that the weather services National Digital Forecast Database indicates that some 200 records might fall between Monday and Wednesday. For example, Tuesdays expected high of 23 degrees at Chicagos OHare International Airport would be a full 5 degrees lower than the record-low set in 1995, he said. ...

Northwest Siberia is geographically remote territory, which has been settled by indigenous human populations probably since the Upper Paleolithic. To investigate the genetic landscape of Northwest Siberians, we have analyzed mitochondrial and Y chromosome DNA polymorphisms of 169 unrelated individuals from Khanty and Mansi ethnic groups in Northwest Siberia. In addition, HVS-I sequences (N=3522) and Y chromosome SNP data (N=2175), obtained from the literature, were used to elucidate the genetic relationships among the North Eurasian populations. The results show clinal distributions of mtDNA and Y chromosome haplogroups along East-West axis of Northern Eurasia. In this context, the Ugric-speaking Khanty and Mansi appear as unique intermediate populations carrying Upper Paleolithic and more recent haplotypes typical for both West and East Eurasian gene pools. This admixture indicates that the Khanty and Mansi populations have resided in the contact zone of genetically distinguishable eastern and ...
Well we took Karlisa out again to a show but this time for only one day as we were too busy to do both and it was a way to travel. We had a great day out and met up with some nice people. I would just like to say that there was a great turn out of siberians in all categories at this show and everyone of a very high standard and so it was a difficult show and I think every siberian got atleast one final over the weekend which was nice. The judges were very good and some did comment on how high the overall standard of cats were in this breed at the show, making their decisions very difficult indeed. This is great news for siberians when it comes to promoting the U.K siberian cats overseas and gives U.K breeders a very good reputation of producing quality cats with consistently good type ...
Omsk (Russian: Омск ohmsk) is the capital of Omsk Oblast, Siberia, and is a regional hub for Western Siberia and the Altai mountains in Russia, as well as northern Kazakhstan.
The aim of this research was to study the rare earth (REE) minerals in ooidal ironstone deposits of the West Siberian basin and the Turgai depression. Authigenic minerals (monazite and cerite) were described, and their main mineral form was identified as light rare earth element phosphate (LREE-phosphate) in this study. LREE-phosphate is included in ferruginous ooids, peloids, and oncoids and forms a consistent mineral association with Fe-hydroxides (goethite and its hydrated amorphous derivatives) and Fe-rich layered silicates (Fe-illite-smectite, chamosite, berthierine). The constancy of the mineral association in two deposits of different ages indicates a general mechanism behind the formation of these minerals. LREE-phosphates (authigenic monazite) are characterized by microscopic sizes (up to 24 μm), diverse morphology (mainly spherical or xenomorphic), and occupy spaces between the micro-cortex in ferruginous spheroids. This mineral can be found in other deposits of ooidal ironstone. According
NOVOSIBIRSK, RUSSIA-Excavations at a 4,000-year-old site in Siberia have revealed a thin bronze plate that could have been used as a shaving implement, reports the Siberian Times. Expedition leader Vyacheslav Molodin of the Siberian Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography says that while his team has provisionally identified the artifact as a razor, it was probably also used as a knife. The practice of shaving likely dates far back in prehistory, but appears to have become particularly popular in the Bronze Age, as evidenced by the fact that many graves of the period contain what are believed to be razor knives.

The Role of Plant Fatty Acids in Regulation of the Adaptation of Organisms to the Cold Climate in Cryolithic Zone of Yakutia - Adaptation;cryoresistance;fatty acids;grass plant;Yakut horse;
Turbic Cryosols (permafrost soils characterized by cryoturbation, i.e., by mixing of soil layers due to freezing and thawing) are widespread across the Arctic, and contain large amounts of poorly decomposed organic material buried in the subsoil. This cryoturbated organic matter exhibits retarded decomposition compared to organic material in the topsoil. Since soil organic matter (SOM) decomposition is known to be tightly linked to N availability, we investigated N transformation rates in different soil horizons of three tundra sites in north-eastern Siberia and Greenland. We measured gross rates of protein depolymerization, N mineralization (ammonification) and nitrification, as well as microbial uptake of amino acids and NH4+ using an array of 15N pool dilution approaches. We found that all sites and horizons were characterized by low N availability, as indicated by low N mineralization compared to protein depolymerization rates (with gross N mineralization accounting on average for 14% of ...
Ogneva Olga and M. Tarkhov Faculty of Soil Science, Moscow State University, Vorobjevy Gory, Moscow 119991, Russia The considerable part of mire ecosystems of the Western Siberian plain develops in permafrost conditions. Such mire complexes as frozen peatlands are widespread in these locations. The purpose of this paper is to study a unique development path of frozen peatlands soils. The area of the research is located in the north of Western Siberia (65°18 .55N, 72°52.90E) in a zone of discontinuous permafrost. There is a special formation- peat spots - that are diagnosed by extensive spots of bare peat surface, the vegetation on which is completely absent for decades. Usually peat spots are located at the tops of peatlands, have an oval form, their diameter ranges from 0,5 to 5m, and their surface is covered with the overdried peat crust with a peculiar structure. During field works experimental sites were put on peat spots and on the background areas with a vegetative cover. The ...
Since the last Ice Age, the reindeers extraordinary adaptation to cold has sustained human life over vast tracts of the earths surface, providing meat, fur, and transport. Images carved into rocks and tattooed on the skin of mummies hint at ancient ideas about the reindeers magical ability to carry the human soul on flights to the sun. These images pose one of the great mysteries of prehistory: the reindeer revolution, in which Siberian native peoples tamed and saddled a species they had previously hunted. Drawing on nearly twenty years of field work among the Eveny in northeast Siberia, Piers Vitebsky shows how Eveny social relations are formed through an intense partnership with these extraordinary animals as they migrate over the swamps, ice sheets, and mountain peaks of what in winter is the coldest inhabited region in the world. He reveals how indigenous ways of knowing involve a symbiotic ecology of mood between humans and reindeer, and he opens up an unprecedented understanding of nomadic

Asparagus is a familiar vegetable for many, with its distinct green stalks that end in a scaly bunch at the tip. Also known as sparrow grass, Asparagus officinalis is a perennial flowering plant that grows in smooth shoots from a short, woody root stock. It can reach a height of 59 inches, and is fleshy and about as thick as a finger. Asparagus is native to central and southern Europe, the Middle East, western Siberia, and northern Africa.. Used for food and folk wellness traditions since 3000 B.C.E., asparagus has quite the rich history. It was used as a sacred offering in ancient Egypt, and an asparagus recipe is featured in one of the oldest surviving cookbooks-Apicius-compiled in the late 3rd century A.D. In traditional wellness, the rhizome was boiled into a tea, and the roots and vegetable used for supporting healthy fluid balance, cleansing, and urinary health.**. ...
The modern human remains from layer III were associated with the remains of other fauna. In general, the faunal assemblage indicates a significantly colder climate than the one that now prevails around Beijing. On the one hand, layer III had remains of the Siberian musk deer (Moschus moschiferus), which now lives farther north in the taiga of southern Siberia and northern Manchuria. On the other hand, layer III had no remains of warm climate species, i.e., the rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) and the masked palm civet (Paguma larvata), even though these species were present in the uppermost Holocene layer (Shang et al., 2007). The faunal evidence is thus consistent with the colder climate that existed when the last ice age began 25,000 years ago. It is not consistent with the warmer climate that prevailed 40,000 years ago in southern Siberia and northern China during the Malokheta Interstade of the Karga Interglacial (33,000 - 43,000 BP). At that time, average annual temperatures were as much as ...

During Quaternary glaciations, the ranges of Northern Eurasia forest species periodically experienced contraction followed by subsequent re-colonizations in the interglacial intervals. However, unlike the broadleaf trees of temperate forests, taiga species seem not to have retreated fully to southern regions in unfavorable periods and possibly survived at mid-latitudes in multiple refugia. Here, we report a study of genetic variation of three mitochondrial DNA markers in 90 populations of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) located from Eastern Europe to Eastern Siberia. The geographic distribution of seven mitotypes demonstrated the split between western and eastern populations approximately along the 38th meridian. Genetic diversity in the western part was significantly higher than in the eastern one. Five mitotypes were western- and one eastern-specific. One mitotype was common in both regions, but in the eastern part it occurred only in the South Urals and adjacent areas. The geographic structure ...

Plant Description: Native to Europe and Asia, including Scotland, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, France, Sweden, Norway, Finland, east to eastern Siberia, north to well inside the Arctic Circle and south to the Caucasus Mountains. Cultivated in eastern USA, Europe, Russia, the Baltic States and Scandinavia. Pinus sylvestris is an evergreen coniferous tree that grows to a height of 145 feet; mature trees have long, straight trunks topped with a rounded or flat-topped mass of foliage and can live to the age of over 700 years. It is the only pine native to northern Europe and is the national tree of Scotland. Pine needle essential oil originating in north and central Europe is preferred by the perfume industry. The finest Scotch Pine essential oil is steam distilled from the new shoots and needles only ...
Spending identically-faced July days in an out-of-the-way small town in Eastern Siberia where the concrete of apartment blocks has gone to sleep before finishing screwing a forty-five-year-old peasant crone sated on macaroni; conducting daily life and love among the meager monotonously moving torture instruments of summer; in this small town close to the imaginary center of the world, in the wind that moves the dust but not the air, in the dusk and rot - for where else its as dark as in the circle at the candles center; in this arrangement of sewage, middlebrow taste, flies, useless chores and petty hooliganism; in the town of non-splendor and unfinished sounds, the lowest kind of materialism, the spiritual homeland of the blazer-clad fans of Nekrasov and cheep candy without wrappers, in the Babylon of non-poetry that reaches the limits of nonexistence; in the point not marked in the guidebooks either to Heaven or to Hell (let alone the middle spheres), in the town forgotten by war and ...
I was inspired to take the BAM across Siberia by Dervla Murphys book, Through Siberia by Accident, even though Murphy, an intrepid Irish grandmother, broke a leg slipping in the train cars primitive toilet. I was further motivated by the fact that my great-grandfather had built the far-eastern section of the Trans-Siberian Railway in the 1890s, yet I had never been to its terminus, Vladivostok, where my father was born. So three friends joined me on an improbable two-week railway adventure across Siberia ...
The Arctic is affected by climate change much stronger than other regions of the globe. Permafrost thawing can lead to additional methane release, which enhances the greenhouse effect and warming, as well as changes of Arctic tundra ecosystems. A great part of Siberian Arctic is still unexplored. Ground-based investigations are difficult to be carried out in this area due to it is an out-of-the-way place. So, in spite of the high cost, aircraft-based in-situ measurements can provide a good opportunity to fill up the gap in data on the atmospheric composition over this region.
The Denisonvans were an ancient people who are known from only a single archaeological site, a cave in the Altai Mountains of southern Siberia. The group were identified as being genetically distinct after scientists studied genetic data from the fingerbone of a child found in 2008 and thought to have lived at least 50 000 years ago. Mitochondrial DNA from this individual suggests that the most recent female direct ancestor that this individual shared with Neanderthals and Modern Humans that lived about a million years ago. This was possible because mitochondrial DNA is found in the mitochondria, organelles outside the cell nucleus, it is passed directly from mother to child without being sexually recombined each generation, enabling precise estimations of when individuals shared common ancestors, at least through the female line (it is also possible to trace direct ancestry through the male line, using DNA from the Y chromosome, which is passed directly from father to son without sexual ...
The Pääbo group last year produced a high-quality Denisovan genome based on DNA from a pinky finger bone discovered in 2008 in Denisova Cave in the Altai Mountains of Southern Siberia. That bone is from a young woman who lived about 40,000 years ago. The Neanderthal toe bone was found in the same cave in 2010, though in a deeper layer of sediment that is thought to be about 10,000-20,000 years older. The cave also contains modern human artifacts, meaning that at least three groups of early humans occupied the cave at different times. The Pääbo group developed new techniques to extract DNA from these old bones ...
Scopula immutata, the lesser cream wave, is a moth of the family Geometridae. It was described by Linnaeus in 1758. It is found throughout Europe. A typical temperate to boreal Palearctic species. In Europe it ranges from the West coast of France and the British Isles to the Urals. In the North it extends from Central Scandinavia, South to Central Italy and South Bulgaria. This latter occurrence is isolated from the main populations and is limited to higher regions. There are also isolated, very much small occurrences in Northern Portugal and North-eastern Spain, as well as evidence in Corsica and Sardinia. However, these findings must still be confirmed. Outside Europe the species spreads East across the Caucasus, Kazakhstan, Southern Siberia, Mongolia and the Russian Far East and Sakhalin. The species is moisture-loving and is therefore found in humid forests, swamps, bogs, wet meadows and along rivers. In the Alps and southern Europe it rises up to 1,200 metres (3,900 ft), rarely even higher ...
The genetic history of indigenous peoples of the Americas primarily focuses on Human Y-chromosome DNA haplogroups and Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroups. Autosomal atDNA markers are also used, but differ from mtDNA or Y-DNA in that they overlap significantly. The genetic pattern indicates Indigenous Amerindians experienced two very distinctive genetic episodes; first with the initial peopling of the Americas, and secondly with European colonization of the Americas. The former is the determinant factor for the number of gene lineages, zygosity mutations and founding haplotypes present in todays Indigenous Amerindian populations. Analyses of genetics among Amerindian and Siberian populations have been used to argue for early isolation of founding populations on Beringia and for later, more rapid migration from Siberia through Beringia into the New World. The microsatellite diversity and distributions of the Y lineage specific to South America indicates that certain Amerindian populations have ...

Its long been something of a holy grail for those bent on the idea of recreating species lost to the Earth through extinction, and now the Russians and Japanese are actually planning to do it--were going to clone a woolly mammoth, you guys. Thats right. Using intact bone marrow recovered from the thigh bone of a woolly mammoth found in the thawing permafrost of Siberia, researchers think they will likely clone a living, breathing mammoth in just five years.
The results of our study provided an additional support for the existence of limited maternal gene flow between eastern Asia/southern Siberia and eastern Europe revealed by analysis of modern and ancient mtDNAs previously [12], [37], [39], [48], [42], [58], [59]. Two more mtDNA subclusters which may be indicative of eastern Asian influx into gene pool of eastern Europeans have been revealed within haplogroups M10 and N9a. The presence of N9a3a subcluster only in eastern European populations may indicate that it could arose there after the arrival of founder mtDNA from eastern Asia about 8-13 kya. It is noteworthy that another eastern Asian specific lineage, C5c1, revealed exclusively in some European populations (Poles, Belorussians, Romanians), shows evolutionary ages within frames of 6.6-11.8 kya depending on the mutation rates values [12]. In addition, recent molecular-genetic study of the Neolithic skeletons from archaeological sites in the Alföld (Hungary) has demonstrated high frequency ...
For example, North America is often referred to as proto-North America to indicate the continental landmass that existed any time before the modern one, obviously a very broad sense of time. More specifically, Laurentia refers to proto-North America during the early Paleozoic. During that time frame, as we shall see, the smaller terrane of Avalonia and Baltica (a micro-continent that eventually formed parts of Europe, Scandinavia and Siberia) collided with Laurentia. That formed Laurussia (or proto-North America) during the Middle Paleozoic. Laurussia, in older, pre-tectonic terminology, is also referred to as the Old Red Sandstone continent during the Devonian. Laurasia is often used interchangeably in the literature for Laurussia (technically includes the additional accretion to Laurussia of the landmasses of Siberia, Kazakhstania, and the North China and East China cratons). During the late Paleozoic, the continent of Gondwana collided with Laurussia, and that formed the massive ...

The Spring Adonis (Adonis vernalis) lives on steppe grasslands in Austrias Pannonian climate regions. Primarily its distribution area was in the Altai Mountains and in Siberia. It reached Europe at the end of the last ice age by the influence of men like forest clearing and grazing, and therefore creating new habitats for the plants. The flower opens its calyx only in bright sunlight. It has a medical history because of its cardio-effective glycosides, which are high toxic when overdosed. Nowadays it is an endangered species and strictly protected.. ...

The shamans7 of Siberia use Amanita muscaria for recreational or ritualistic purposes. They use a dried preparation called mukhomor to speak to their gods. These people, the Kamchadales and the Koryaks, eat between one and three dried mushrooms. They believe that smaller mushrooms and those with a large quantity of small warts are more active than pale red ones and ones with fewer spots. The Koryak women chew the sun-dried agaric and roll the product into small sausages, which the men swallow. The Koryaks also eat the flesh of slaughtered reindeer which have recently eaten fly agaric, but whose psychotropic condition has subsided. In a similar fashion to the Sami, the Siberians discovered that their urine contained the active principle of the fungi and they could consume this recycled product with less of the undesirable poisonous effects of the raw toadstool. ...

Internationally there is a long and close historical relationship between anarchism and what in English is often referred to as syndicalism or revolutionary unionism. Such unions have no bureaucracy, all decisions being made by their membership and include among their aims the abolition of capitalism and its replacement with libertarian communism. Recently we received details of one of the newer syndicalist unions, the Siberian Confederation of Labour (SKT).. Anarchism and anarcho-syndicalism were reborn in the USSR in the opening created by Gorbachevs glasnost in the late 1980s. Lenin and the Bolsheviks physically destroyed the previous movements of the 1917 to 21 period. Not only were the anarchist organisations and papers suppressed but also tens of thousands of activists were jailed or even executed..
