Development of Objective Sozological Zoning in the Territory of the Republic of Adygea (as Exemplified by Invertebrates)


Based on the analysis of the habitat of 160 invertebrate species included in the Red Book of the Republic of Adygea (2012), we provided preliminary sozological zoning of the territory of the republic and identified areas that are promising as natural areas of protection. With account of the approaches provided in the article, we find it promising to revise the republican "system" of regional and local (municipal) SPNR, preserving the existing and establishing new ones, which fit into the potential ecological framework of the region.
