The 5th Russian Conference with the international participation «Mountain Ecosystems and Their Components», devoted to the 20th anniversary of Institute of Ecology of Mountain Territories named after A.K. Tembotov of the Kabardino-Balkarian Scientific Cen
The 5th Russian Conference with the international participation «Mountain Ecosystems and
Their Components» addressed the following issues: a biodiversity in mountain conditions (the laws of its formation,
specific and population variety, dynamics in time and space), ecology and evolution of organisms and
communities in the conditions of mountainous territories, ecological bases of rational development and protection
of natural resources of mountains.

Use of the odontological characteristics to assess the ecological sphere divergence in closely-related rodents within the sympatry zone
The new index which is the indicator of the nutrition type for omnivorous rodents is proposed
on the basis of analysis of odontological characteristics of the Apodemus (A. uralensis Pallas, 1811 and A. ponticus
Sviridenko, 1936) from the North Caucasus. The use of the occlusion index has confirmed the hypotheses
for divergence of two closely-related rodents in the sympatry zone under nutrition preferences.

Phenetical analysis of craniological characters in two cryptic species of common field mice from Sylvaemus subgenus in the sympatry zone of the Western Caucasus
The phenetical analysis of the cranium nonmetric characters in two genetically identified and
symbiotopical species A. uralensis and A. ponticus of the Western Caucasus, has been performed to reveal the
level of morphological differentiation. Phenetical distances between the species 15 times exceed the level of sex
differences and make up MMD=0.3185 between the males, and MMD=0.443 between the females. All in all,
under comparison of A. uralensis and A. ponticus without considering sex, the distance is MMD=0.389 that corresponds
only to the level of subspecies differences (Vasilyev, 1984; Vasilyev et al., 2000) [1, 2]. Nevertheless,
the level of phenetical isolation between A. uralensis and A. ponticus is high if to consider that the compared
species inhabit under similar landscape-biotopical and climatic conditions, and as we suggest, that serves to
development of phenotypical similarity, and thus explains the lesser value of differences.

Seasonal dynamics of house mouse (Mammalia, Rodentia) blood parameters under mountain conditions of the Central Caucasus
Seasonal dynamics of the blood parameters of the house mouse (Mus musculus L.) throughout
the year in the mountains of the Central Caucasus (1800 m a.s.l.) was studied. The pronounced seasonal dynamics
of the blood parameters was revealed in the favorable condition (man buildings) in comparison with the
wildlife small rodents, in the context of two periods: the cold period (spring, winter, autumn) and the warm one
(summer). The greatest expenditure of energy in the species is winter that is demonstrated by the increase of
blood respiratory function. Thus, the maximum increase of oxygen capacity is followed by peripheralization of
high number of erythrocytes, the sizes of which are significantly smaller than those from summer data that ensures
increasing of the total absorbing surface for oxygen.
Fauna, structure of communities and vertical and zonal distribution of the earthworms (Oligochaeta, Lumbricidae) in the central part of the Kuban variant of vertical zonation (North-Western Caucasus, Republic of Adyghea)
Relying on our own studies and analysis of the literary evidence, we summarize for the first time
data on fauna, ecology and vertical and zonal distribution of the earthworms within the Republic of Adyghea. We
recorded 21 species in the territory under survey, including 11 species first discovered in the region. Contrary to
the Lumbricidae fauna of the Elbrusskiy and Terskiy variants of vertical zonation, the fauna of the Kuban variant is
more «Mediterranean» – 33% of this fauna make up the species which are widely spread within the Mediterranean
area of Holarctica. The Mediterranean group of the earthworms is both more abundant in species, and also plays a
significant role in the communities. The Crimean-Caucasian subendemics Dendrobaena schmidti (Mich.) and
Dendrobaena mariupolienis mariupolienis (Wyss.), and Dendrobaena tellermanica Perel, the species of the Caucasian
origin, and the Mediterranean Aporrectodea jassyensis (Mich.) are dominant in the most of biotopes. As in
most regions of the North Caucasus, the morpho-ecological group of proper soil earthworms is more multitudinous.
The total number of the earthworm species increases in hypsometric profile from the steppe zone to the belt of
broad-leaved forests where 15 species are recorded, and it decreases towards the Alpine belt.
Biochemical characters of hydromorphic soils in the Central Caucasus (within the Terskiy variant of vertical zonation in Kabardino-Balkaria)
The studies and comparative analysis are conducted to define biochemical characters, including
soil respiration, humus contents, enzymatic activity – catalase, dehydrogenase, invertase, phosphotase and
urease, of hydromorphic soils in agrocenoses and natural biogeocenoses of plains within the Terskiy variant of
vertical zonation in Kabardino-Balkaria. The differences of the studied parameters between the soils of agrocenoses
and biogeocenoses are revealed. The studied characteristics are pooled to form the overall integral parameter
of biological state of soil (IPBSS). A 39-40% reduction of IPBSS points to disturbance of physicochemical,
biological and total functions of the studied soils.
Cuckoo wasps (Hymenoptera, Chrysididae) of the forest biocenoses within the interfluve of the Malaya Laba and Bolshaya Laba rivers and peculiarities of their distribution in altitudinal belts (Western Caucasus)
For the first time data are presented on 24 species of cuckoo wasps (Hymenoptera, Chrysididae)
of the forest biocenoses within the interfluve of the Malaya Laba and Bolshaya Laba rivers,.including 11
species that are new for the Western Caucasus. The peculiarities of distribution of these insects in altitudinal
belts are considered. The complex of xylobionts which make up 91.7% of the total number of the species prevails
among cuckoo wasps.

Fauna, karyotypes and ecology of non-biting midges from genus Chironomus Meigen, 1803 (Diptera, Chironomidae) of the Yew-and-Boxwood Tree Grove (North-West Caucasus)
This paper presents data on peculiarities of fauna, karyotypes and ecology of non-biting midges
from genus Chironomus Meigen, 1803 (Diptera, Chironomidae) of the Yew-and-Boxwood Tree Grove (North-
West Caucasus). The presence of Chironomus luridus is revealed, which was first found in the North-West Caucasus.
The karyotype in studied populations is characterized by significantly low level of inversion polymorphism.
The populations of the Yew-and-Boxwood Tree Grove in spectrum and frequencies of banding sequences
are more close to the early studied populations in the northern macroslope of the Central Caucasus.

Probabilistic approach to studying the laws of distribution of prime numbers and simple twin numbers in a natural row up to x =1040000000
The paper presents all prime numbers and simple twin numbers obtained in an initial piece of a
natural row up to 1040000000 (pbotdo.bas program). In tables, twins are allocated with hyphens between them.
In each file, the quantity of prime numbers and twins, as well as the corresponding relative frequencies are
counted. Using the obtained tabular data and probability-theoretic methods, the approximate formula is derived
for the average density of simple twin numbers in an interval from 1 to 1040000000.

Variant of peeper head Turing mashine
The variant of Turing Machine (TM) is suggested, which is called in this paper Peeper Head
Turing Machine (phTM). Such machines differ from classical TM by having an additional eye which can see the
content of left nearby cell at the moment of current cell processing. In the paper, one internal state phTMs are
considered. Any command of such a machine looks like , where Si and Sj are two symbols observed
by peeper head at the same time, Sk is a new symbol, replacing current symbol Sj, and D is direction of the following
head shift (L, to the left, or R, to the right). It is proved in the paper that the set of one state phTMs is
functionally full. In particular, it means that in the class of phTM with one internal state, a halting problem is
unsolvable and a universal machine exists.
Development of the integrated expert system for recognition of structural lines of a relief
The paper presents the short review on technology of development of the expert system integrated
with a geographic information system (GIS) for subject domain of the geomorphological analysis. The
semistructured problem related to recognition of characteristic structural lines of the relief surface is considered.
To solve this problem we propose to use a method of full integration and a design of system basing on the
UML diagrams. Application of the described technology is substantiated; and features of implementation of expert
system integration with GIS are considered. Examples are given of creation of the UML diagrams, spaces of
problem states and implementation of expert rules in the CLIPS language.
