  • Azerbaijan – Peatlands - Michael-Succow-Foundation
    of them are endemic Moreover one can sight a vast mammal fauna which exists in its natural compostition and a particular bird occurrence with many worldwide endangered species Nestled in the Greater and Lesser Caucasus the Talish Mountain and the Caspian Sea Azerbaijan boasts a surprising diversity of pristine habitats Part of the Eastern Mediterranean climatic region the country s natural features include high mountains forests steppe semi desert coast floodplain and wetland ecosystems Due to its highly diverse relief a tremendous biological diversity can be found within a very confined area However occurrence of peatlands in the Caucasus has been hitherto hardly known Because of this an intensive fieldwork within the frame of a small project and in close cooperation with junior scientists of the University Greifswald took place The result was a first overview about the so far known peatlands of Azerbaijan Due to the semi humid to semi arid climate conditions the percentage of fens of the land area is under 1 In the mountain regions sloping mires bogs and degraded terrestrialisation mires are dominant In the low land some bogs and degraded paludification mires can be found Especially the last ones are highly endangered Based on

  • Central Asia – Saxaul Forests as a Carbon Sink - Michael-Succow-Foundation
    global cycle Therefore cold winter deserts act as carbon sinks C sinks Besides functioning as a C sink the Saxaul vegetation of the Central Asian semi deserts takes on a multi functional key role in offering additional benefits to the ecosystem These include the stabilisation of lightly eroded soils a reduced risk of sand and salt dust storms the enrichment of phytomass and humus and the regulation of the ecosystem s water balance through shade formation and small scale evapotranspiration Despite numerous desert specific research projects by Soviet institutes the carbon fixation potential and the resulting climatic effect of Saxaul vegetation has not been satisfactorily quantified to date The degradation of the ecosystem through overgrazing and timber harvest within their entire range Saxaul forests serve as valuable pastureland and a source of alternative fuel likely leads to a significant decrease of the possible carbon fixation potential The main goal of the project was the quantification and evaluation of the climatic relevance of Saxaul vegetation and the C sink potential of the cold winter deserts and semi deserts of Central Asia Additional goals included the evaluation of the afforestation potential for Saxaul in Central Asia the spatial evaluation of hemeroby in Saxaul stands and the subsequent limitation of the possible mitigation potential as well as the establishment of supra regional co operation and consultation among the responsible administrative bodies Implemented Measures and Activities Determination of the carbon pool and assessment of the C sink potential of Saxaul stands by A survey of ecosystem diversity and available biomass both aboveground and belowground in representative Saxaul stands in Kazakhstan Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan Measuring of the carbon content of aboveground and belowground biomass as well as deadwood biomass followed by comprehensive laboratory analyses at Greifswald University Extensive assessment of the Saxaul biomass and the

  • Центральная Азия - Мониторинг биоразнообразия - Фонд Михаэля Зуккова
    узбекской части Устюрта обнаружил потрясающие находки Участниками был найден кулан Equus hemionus kulan который до этого считался вымершим в дикой природе на территории Узбекистана а также другие виды Результаты экспедиции подогрели интерес зоологического сообщества и в настоящее время внесены в Красный список IUCN и следующую редакцию Красной книги Узбекистана Данный проект позволит включить в регион исследований Туркменскую часть южного Устюрта что выводит совместный мониторинг на системный уровень для одного из самых удаленных регионов планеты Расширение области позволит получить более точные данные по биоразнообразию Устюрта и особенно по мигрирующим трансграничным видам Ожидается что дальнейшие открытия в этой малоизученном регионе позволят лучше оценить возможность реинтродукции центральноазиатских видов Экспедиции по мониторингу биоразнообразия в Узбекистане и Туркменистане также позволят укрепить сотрудничество между учеными двух стран Проект также сможет развить научное обсуждение которое возможно в будущем выльется в политическое решение региональных экологических проблем Результаты экспедиций будут представлены на семинаре зимой 2014 года Меморандум о взаимопонимании между Фондом Михаэля Зуккова и Институтом Ботаники при Академии наук Туркменистана позволит провести экспедицию в этой стране в ту часть страны которая не всегда доступна для иностранцев В Узбекистане у Фонда подписаны меморандумы о взаимопонимании с Главным управлением лесного хозяйства Министерства сельского и водного хозяйства в 2011 году а также

  • Kyrgyzstan – Ecosystem functions of high altitude peatlands - Michael-Succow-Foundation
    Kyrgyzstan land users are not sensitised to the issue Reasons are among others the practical aspects of grazing land management and the lack of specialized knowledge In university issues of protection of resources and the environment are strongly underrepresented The distribution of peatlands in the high mountains and the whole country is yet unknown This project therefore aims to improve knowledge of ecosystem services and climate relevance of peatlands and organic soils in Kyrgyzstan s high mountains and to sensitise relevant actors to their endangerment A method based on satellite images is being developed in order to determine the position and size of high mountain peatlands and to estimate their level of endangerment During a three month field study a team of scientists will create soil profiles carry out vegetation inventories and measure carbon and nitrogen fixation of several Kyrgyz high mountain peatlands For test areas in Naryn oblast pasture management and possible threats to ecosystem services will be evaluated On the basis of these results project partners will develop guidelines for a climate smart grazing land management in cooperation with local partners and land users They will also raise awareness among national and international decision makers and identify links
