Students take part in Geography Night at Galichya Gora

On 5 June, the Russian Geographical Society held the first international event “Geography Night” at the nature reserve Galichya Gora. The event was organised by Dmitry Vladimirov, head of the youth club of the Voronezh office of the Russian Geographical Society, for students of the Faculty of Geography, Geoecology, and Tourism.

Dmitry Vladimirov prepared a presentation which included two parts. In the first part, he talked about the history of the Russian Geographical Society, its priorities, and current projects. He told students about the expeditions organised by the society and said that active and eager students have a chance to take part in such expeditions to various parts of Russia: from Kaliningrad to the Kuril Islands.

“Over the past five years alone, members of our youth club participated in the expeditions of the Russian Geographical Society to Kyzyl-Kuragino in Tuva, to the island of Gogland in the Baltic Sea, to the Losiny Ostrov National Park in the Moscow Region, etc.,” said Dmitry Vladimirov.

The second part of the presentation was a popular science lecture dedicated to the biogeographical and the landscape nature of the notion “relict”. The topic was chosen because Galichya Gora is a nature reserve well-known for its biotic relict landscape, whose origin has been a matter of heated scientific discussion for about 150 years. Dmitry Vladimirov named the researchers who contributed greatly to the investigation of the problem, and gave a brief description of the two main hypotheses explaining the origin of the relict species: the relict hypothesis and the synanthropic hypothesis.

He also demonstrated well-known relict plants of the Central Russian forest-steppe including Scutellária supína, Andrósace koso-poljanskii, Buplēurum multinērve, etc.
