PhD Nikolay KorablevEducational and scientific degrees:
PhD, 2005 A.N. Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution RAS, Moscow.
Higher education, 1999, Tver State University biological faculty, zoology department.
I pay special attention to Introduced and Reintroduced mammal species: European Beaver Castor fiber, Racoon Dog Nyctereures procyonoides, American Mink Neovison vison. The research focuses on morphological adaptations as well as on different aspects of viability populations beginning from limited numbers of founders.
1999–2007 Central-Forest State Nature Biosphere Reserve, scientific and ecoeducational departments.
2007 – Present time State Agricultural Academy of Velikie Luki in a post of Assistant Professor.
Current research projects:
Ecologo-morpho-genetic analysis of native and introduced the raccoon dog populations.
Morpho-ecological adaptation of beavers’ Castor fiber reintroduced population: Central-Forest reserve as a case study.
Completed research projects:
Molecular-genetics investigation of raccoon dog populations introduced on the territory of Upper Volga Basin.
Assessment of a condition of carnivores’ populations of Kalinin Nuclear Power Plant area.
Habitat relations of large mammals in the protected area located in the southern boreal zone (Central Forest state nature biosphere reserve).
Microevolution processes in populations of beaver (Castor fiber) reintroduced in European part of Russia.
Scientific support of hunting activities for landowners in Pskov region.
