Ecology, nature conservation, bird monitoring, 
annual cycles of birds, moult and migration of birds.

I am most interested in studying the photoperiodic control of annual cycle, interspecific and intraspecific variation of moult. Main objects are different species of passerine birds.



(1977): PhD in Biology, St.Petersburg State University 
Thesis title: "Comparative investigation of annual cycles in some species of Emberiza
(1972): MS in Zoology, St.Petersburg State University.



2003 - present date: Senior research officer at Biological research Institute of St. Petersburg State University; 
since1977 : scientific worker at Biological research Institute of St. Petersburg State University.
