Scientists intend to support the nature efforts.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In the soils affected by the oil spill due to the accident at CHPP-3 in 2020, the number of microorganisms did not decrease, but their species composition changed significantly. This was announced at a meeting of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Siberian Branch presidium by the Systematics and Ecology of Animals Institute Director Victor Glupov:

“On the eve of the next stage of the expedition, I myself took samples in the areas where the oil product was spilled.

As it turned out, the quantitative indicators remained at the same level as in soils that were not contaminated. However, the dominant species of microorganisms have changed.

The dominance is changing, those bacteria that are able to utilize these oil products are growing, and intensive work must be done in this direction.”

He noted that the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences could undertake an increase in the volume of the corresponding destructor bacteria.
