About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Russian

Since 2006 monitoring of a local tiger group in the Sikhote-Alin Biosphere Reserve, in Primorsky Krai in the Russian Far East, by means of camera traps has been carried out. In the southern and central parts of the reserve 44 different tigers were photographed. Only one tiger was marked using traps within 8 years of the survey. 26 tigers were photographed in no more than one year. The reasons of disappearance of tigers from the research territory were: death by natural causes: 7 cases; death as a result of poaching: 4 cases. Seven young tigers were removed from the research territory. The most intensive speed of change the individuals occured in the southern part of the reserve which is characterized by higher anthropogenous loading.

С 2006 г. в Сихотэ-Алинском заповеднике проводится мониторинг местной группировки тигра с помощью фотоловушек. В южной и центральной частях заповедника было сфотографировано 44 разных тигров. Только один тигр отмечался ловушками в течение 8 лет фотоучета. 26 тигров фотографировались не более одного года. Причины исчезновения тигров с территории исследования: гибель по естественным причинам 7 случаев, гибель в результате браконьерства 4 случая, 7 молодых тигров расселились с территории исследования. Наиболее интенсивная скорость смены особей происходит в южной части заповедника, которая характеризуется более высокой антропогенной нагрузкой.
