Common Problems of Nature Management

Pitfalls of Ecology

B.N. Luzgin, Prof.-Dr.Sc.(Geograph.), Can.Sc.(Geology), the Altai State University

Presentation on the environmental state of the country is largely subjective. Increased objectivity those, due to restrictions on access to the corresponding private databases, associated with the need to develop techniques (methods), depend on the low considerations of conjuncture. Tracking ratios of natural resources and their relative replenishment possible with the use of analysis of consumer-resource systems on algorithms similar demographic transition. The Gini coefficient allow calculation factors with sufficient reliability to determine the nature of the bundle of consumer society, when it is directly dependent on the provision of adequate resources.

Keywords: subjectivity of environmental assessments, accuracy of the data bank, structure and volumes of contaminants, stiffness modes of natural protection territories, resource-consumption shift, Gini coefficient, environmental ethics and morality.

G.Yu. Tolkachev, Can.Sc.(Geograph), N.V. Kolomiytsev, Can.Sc.(Geology), B.I. Korzhenevskiy, Can.Sc.(Geology), the All-Russian Research Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Land Reclamation

According to genesis and pathways, heavy metals enter the watercourse in different forms, often inherited from the soils of the catchment. These forms largely depend on the composition and concentration of pore solutions, the strength of the bond of heavy metals with the solid phase of sediments, the availability of their use by aquatic life, the toxicity level of sediments. Based on these characteristics it is possible to estimate the presence or absence of hazard of secondary pollution. The artical discusses the contents and forms of existence of heavy metals in bottom sediments of the reservoirs of the Upper Volga: Ivan,kovo and Uglich. Ivan,kovo is the main source of water supply of Moscow, Uglich is located below them.

Keywords: heavy metals, sediments, forms of existence, pollution, solid phase, water mass, reservoirs.

An economically and environmentally focused land degradation assessment methodology was developed, with the account of various hierarchical levels of the administrative and economic structure of the country (level of the individual farm, regional level, level of the subject of the Russian Federation, level of the federal district (okrug), and level of the whole country). The creation of such methodology required a search for a compromise between domestic and foreign approaches of assessing land degradation. The economic evaluation of land degradation, based on a comparison of the economic indicators of agricultural production under sustainable land management and with «traditional» land use («action/inaction») and the econometric model of the impact of irrigation on the restoration of land fertility and the economy of agriculture, IMPACT -3, are described circumstantially .

Keywords: land degradation, ecosystem services, the damage from the degradation, activity/inactivity evaluation, econometric models, the levels of administrative and economic structure.

Nature management and environmental protection must follow socio-natural laws and ecological ethics. There is most important role in this development and adoption of national and international codes of ethics of environmental management. A draft of the Ecological Code of Russia, developed by a group of philosophers in 1993, is discussed. It is proposed to give it a legal status, setting the basis for environmental legislation and use it in the development of an international code of ethics for the use of natural resources (environmental management).

Keywords: ecological crisis, anthropogenic factor, moral attitude to nature, ethics of environmental (nature resources) management, ecological code.
