This book contains the results of several international expeditions carried out from 1994 to 1997 in remote and still insufficiently studied areas along the northern coasts of the Sea of Okhotsk. These reports cover various aspects of the biodiversity, unique local nature and ecological status of different taxa. The inventories provide check lists of the plants, marine invertebrates, sea fish and bird fauna of the over 400km of coastline stretching between Tauisk and Malkachan, with an emphasis on many unique biogeographical features of this region. The ecological articles mostly focus on different aspects of species biology, many of which are either new to science or relatively unknown.
