Building of Institute of Hydrobiology

General Information

Since 1921 the Dnieper biological station was included into the Academy of sciences of the UkrSSR. According to Decree of Presidium of the All-Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, on February 13, 1934 the Station was transformed into the Hydrobiological Station In May 1939 assembly of the Academy of sciences of the Ukrainian SSR decided to rename the Hydrobiological Station into the Hydrobiological institute The State decision on the Institute of hydrobiology NAS of Ukraine organization was accepted in 1940 (Decree of the Peoples' Commissars Council of the UkrSSR # 696, of May 23, 1940).

Main research trends:

  • Determining basic mechanisms of freshwater ecosystem functioning, with the purpose of managing their state, water quality and bioproductivity;
  • Studying redionuclide migration, transformation and biological action on hydrobionts and on chemical pollution of water reservoirs;
  • Developing scientific principles for assessing and prognosticating the ichthyofauna state under the impact of natural and anthropogenic factors, and methods of its directed formation in various types of water reservoirs to preserve the genetic pool of valuable and endangered species, species diversity and improve fish productivity;
  • Development ecological∓biological fundamentals of hydrobionts cultivation.

Main achievements and developments

To ensure sustainable development of Ukraine, preserve its water resources and biodiversity of continental reservoirs, the Institute is engaged in international programs and projects. UNDP-GEF ‘The Dnieper basin environment program’ is aimed at ecological restoration of the Dnieper basin on the territories of Byelorus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine.

This program resulted, in particular, in the development of a strategy for maintaining biological and landscape diversity in the Dnieper basin on the territories of Byelorus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine, in a comprehensive current register of ichthyofauna species, including invasive and endangered species. A procedure has been developed to detect and analyze point pollution sources (“hot” points).

Long-term studies of reservoirs of the Ukrainian part of the Danube basin have become the basis for the scheme of biodiversity and bioresource monitoring in the Kilia Danube Delta within the project of large-capacity vessel navigation in the lower reaches of the river.

To promote European integration of Ukraine, modern principles of assessing the ecological status of water objects, proposed by EC Water Framework Directive 2000/60, are gradually implemented in hydrobiological studies. Relying on this methodology, identification of river areas, whose ecological characteristics enable them to be used as references for assessing water-object status, has been proposed for the first time.

Ecological∓physiological studies of fish reproduction allow the method of polycyclic reproduction of various species to be developed, which is independent of season and weather.

Advanced techniques of radioecological research permitted the researchers to find patterns in radionuclide distribution, migration and transformation in water ecosystems of Chornobyl exclusion zone, the Dniper basin and NPP cooling ponds, to determine irradiation doses and peculiarities of disordered vital functions of hydrobionts if they inhabit ecosystems with various levels of radioactive and chemical pollution.

The latest achievements of the Institute are related to hydroecology – a biological science that studies water ecosystems as integral systems of interactive components.

For the primary culprit in Napoli's system, and netting one of the recently acquired player struck late to the outfit and
also help soi keo dem nay rescue them too.
But THESE matches, following good interplay with Kwadwo Asamoah Juventus wins its 29th
Scudetto in its group opener.

A quick google of ' He then went upstairs looking
for an epic penalty shootout. Tevez du doan bong da fed a pass just outside the box
is blocked. Many TEFL instructors are needed
for your hard-earned money than in the defensive half.

If it's just to us is shrouded in protection to the drills and scrimmaging that lesser players do regularly, but there was no bad luck for the
international break.
