Japanese scientists conducted research in the Kuril Islands
Experts from Japan studied the ecosystems of Kunashir with the support of the Kurilskiy reserve staff from June 27 to July 7, 2014, the press service of the reserve reported.
The group of researchers who arrived in Kunashir within the framework of visa-free exchanges included three ornithologists, a botanist and a representative of the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Japan.
Maxim Antipin, deputy director of the Kurilskiy nature reserve for research work, told why ornithologists came to study ecosystems this time: “Birds are at the top of the food pyramid and are a kind of indicator of the state of ecosystems: the higher the species diversity of birds and the density of their population , the better the state of ecosystems. "
Through such studies, it is possible to identify the relationship between the species diversity of birds, their numbers and the state of plant communities. Similar work has already been done in the north-eastern part of Hokkaido in the Nemuro area.
According to the preliminary conclusion of the Japanese ornithologists, the seaside terraces in the north-east of Hokkaido are in a more depressed state compared to similar areas of Kunashir.
