V. N. Sukachev Institute of Forest (Siberian branch of
Russian Academy of Sciences)
Address: 660036, Krasnoyarsk, Academgorogok
main scientific studies are focused on:
Biospheric role, ecological functions and biodiversity of forest ecosystems;
Monitoring of state, efficient use and regeneration of forest resources of Siberia.
the Institute the ecological approach to forest productivity assessment is developed; the paleoecological and dendroclimatic
reconstruction of Siberian forest cover dynamics as well as of climate in Holocene is
realized; the forecast maps of shift of forest site zones, of forest ecosystem productivity dynamics for different scenarios of global
climate change which corresponds to doubling of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are obtained. Methodical bases and technological
schemes for use of aerocosmic information are established to analyse spatial forest distribution, their state, structure, thematic
drowing maps of taiga landscapes, as well as to obtain strategical data on seats of dendrophilous insect mass reproduction and forest
fires. Multilevel geoinformational system (GIS) assigned for transition to ecosystem methods of
forest management as well as for monitoring of their state, use and regeneration is
The Institute has more than 10 field stations in different landscape zones of Siberia
and specialized for certain scientific interests.
Institute takes part in realizing of the
state scientific programmes:
Russian Forest”, “Ecological Safety of Russia”, “Global Changes of Environment and Climate”, “Priority studies of
Genetics” and others.
Scientific-methodical bases of a complex assessment of forest areas in the interests
of state defense are developed by the Institute specialists as well.
