V.V. Snakin, Dr.Sc. (Biology), the Moscow State University, the Institute of Basic Biological Problems, the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), A.A. Prisyazhnaya, Can.Sc. (Biology), the Institute of Basic Biological Problems, RAS

The problem of valuation of national wealth, natural resources and, in particular, land is considered. There is a huge difference in the estimates of the value of natural resources in Russia and in the world, due to the lack of development of common approaches. Different estimates of the value of land and soil in the structure of natural resources are given. There are analyzed the possible reasons for the weak connection between the market value of the land and its fertility and the ambiguity in the valuation of soils (soil cover).

Keywords: national wealth, natural capital, value of natural resources, soil cover, market value of land.

O.A. Manuylova, I.V. Bazilskaya, the Federal Centre for Animal Health (c. Vladimir)

Monitoring of the wild boar in the territory of the Voronezhsky reserve is carried out through winter track count, registration at feeding stations, registration of animal meetings and camera traps. Using of camera traps makes it possible to carry out monitoring during the snowless period, supplementing data on the number of animals with information on their behavior and physical state. Dynamics of wild boar in the reserve is a subject of the influence of snow regime and the harvest of acorns. The epizootic of the African swine fever, which arose in 2016 on the territory of the reserve, completely destroyed the local population of the wild boar. Recovery of the population began in a few months later. The first were passable animals, and the fixation of the first wild boars occurred 7 months after the end of the fall. In some areas with low quality for wild boar, they are absent for two years (to the present day).

Keywords: wild boar, dynamic of the number of the wild boar, monitoring, population density, camera traps, influence by natural factors on the wild boar’s population, African swine fever (ASF).

The results (for the period of 2013-2017) of observations of the condition of rare species of vertebrate animals on the territory of the «Basegi» reserve (Perm region) and its environs are presented. Rare species include those listed in the Red Book of the Russian Federation with Annex III and the Red Data Book of the Perm region (mainly birds), and also rare for the strictly protected area (mainly mammals). The state of the latter is assessed on the basis of all available data for the entire lifetime of the reserve. For the first time, the results of an inventory of beaver settlements are presented, on the basis of which the beaver can now be considered an ordinary species of fauna. The main conclusion is that for most of the species described in the article the area of the reserve is insufficient in area, and the state of their populations is determined by factors acting outside its borders.

To assess the environmental performance of the region, the European model DPSIR (Driving Forces, Pressure, State, Impact, Reaction) was used. Based on the model applied to water use, a set of indicators has been generated that reflects the effectiveness of the implementation of the main directions of development of the water management complex in the region in the context of «green» growth. The decoupling method was tested to identify the nature of the relationship between economic activity factors and the «pressure» on the environment in the period 2007-2016, which increases the objectivity of assessing the level of well-being of the ecological situation. The analysis of the indicators of the «reaction» block outlined the factors that reduce the ecological performance of the region.
