|Journal Description :||To date, in Russia there are more than 13,000 Protected Areas (PAs) of different categories and levels. These comprise about 11.4% of the total area of the country. State institutions that manage the networks of Protected Areas (or by separate PAs, e.g. National Parks) have been established in 56 regions of Russia. The basis of this geographical network of Protected Areas is presented by 103 State Nature Reserves, 48 National Parks, 64 federal preserves, 64 Natural Parks, 2300 regional preserves, 8360 natural landmarks (including 17 federal natural landmarks) and another 2360 PAs of regional and local significance. In 2017, the system of Protected Areas of Russia will reach the age of 100 years. This is one of the first exactly scientific journals, so not a popular-scientific one. Its aim will be to show the quality and level of scientific investigations that are carried out in the Protected Areas, studies of biological diversity and also biology and ecology of rare species.
