Karazin University Scientists Won a Tender for Conducting Biogeographic Research in the Antarctic


V. N. Karazin Kharkiv National University has won a tender for conducting biogeographic research at Ukrainian Antarctic Research Base “Akademik Vernadskyi” situated near the Stella Creek (the Argentine Islands, the Antarctic). The project supervisor is Associate Professor of the Department of Zoology and Ecology A. Yu. Utievskyi.

The Antarctic research program is financed by the State Agency for Science, Innovations and Informatization of Ukraine.

Karazin University zoologists will be working on creation of a model profile and description of the Stella Creek underwater biogeographic range for the purposes of further development of the sea protection region project realized under the supervision of Ukraine. This is the first project related to Antarctic biology carried out by the University. Last year was marked by successful accomplishment of Ukraine-supervised two-year project on creation of a sea protection region in Skua Creek. This year is also marked by the launch of the project on Antarctic primary soil investigation engaging University chemists, zoologists and botanists (project manager: O. D. Roshal, Research Institute of Chemistry).

The program of Antarctic biological research consists in investigating terrestrial ecosystems of the Argentine Islands Archipelago on the example of invertebrate animals and Tracheophytes; analyzing correlations between indicators of Antarctic plants adaptability in the natural environment and simulated conditions as part of evaluation of the climatic changes impact on the structure and functions of Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems.

Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University, National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” and the Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics of the National Academy f Sciences of Ukraine will be participating in Antarctic landscape investigation besides Karazin University.

For reference. Ukrainian Antarctic Research Base “Akademik Vernadskyi” was founded in February, 1996. The scope of research investigations carried out at the research base covers physics of polar geospace and solar-terrestrial relations, biological (system research of the structure and functions of Antarctic biocoenoses), oceanographic and bioresource, geologic-geophysical, hydrometeorological, medico-physiological as well as nuclear and physical studies of the Earth and atmosphere.
