Lecture "Pressure cooker of evolution: animals in the metropolis" by Natalia Feoktistova

If Charles Darwin found himself on the streets of a modern metropolis, he would be shocked by the speed at which animals and plants adapt to their new urban conditions. It is not for nothing that cities are sometimes called the "pressure cookers of evolution." What unusual biocenoses can be found in the metropolis? What problems do animals and plants face in the city and how are they solved? Who is better off in the city than in the wild? The lecture will answer these and many other questions.

Lecture "Microcosm under an electron beam" by Neretina Anna Nikolaevna

A few years ago the microworld, the world of extremely small objects, indistinguishable to the human eye, was of little interest to the public.

However, during the COVID-19 pandemic caused by the rapid and uncontrolled spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, we all began to follow the research of the microcosm with interest and excitement. What creatures are inhabited by the microcosm? What do they look like? How are they born, live and die?

Microscopes of various designs allow scientists to study the secrets of the microworld. This lecture will focus on the use of scanning electron microscopes to study a variety of living organisms. The beauty of the microcosm opens up to the observer under an electron beam.

Lecture "Scientific expeditions to the Arctic: how scientists study rare species of animals" Artemyeva Svetlana Mikhailovna

Why study polar bears and walrus? What are bioindicator species? How and where are these animals observed? Why do scientists need satellites, as well as the ability to fly a drone? What are the current approaches to the study of marine mammals, what is the progress of current Arctic expeditions? This and more about the expeditions to the Arctic organized by the Arctic Scientific Center "Rosneft" and IEE RAS.

Lecture "Noah, Linnaeus and hamsters" by Rurikov Georgy Borisovich

"There are as many species as there were different forms originally created" - wrote Karl Linnaeus, who is called the founder of modern systematics of the living. This aphoristic formula is a summary of the essence of creationism: there is no evolution because species are immutable. But if “there are so many kinds ...”, then they can be counted, which Noah had to have done to select “those who wanted” to get into the ark.

Lecture "On a light plane following wild geese: from the Onega Peninsula to Alaska" Rosenfeld Sofia Borisovna

The lecture is devoted to the results of studying anseriformes and other animals using an ultralight aircraft. The results of ten seasons of expeditions will be presented, during which more than 100 thousand kilometers were covered in the Arctic and on the way to it, many beautiful and interesting places that for a long time remained inaccessible to zoologists. The unique capabilities of ultralight aviation and remote telemetry for studying and preserving migratory birds and nature will be demonstrated.
