Aim of the study: revealing of biological, ecological and behavioural peculiarities of the species from
genera Sylvia and Phylloscopus in natural and anthropized ecosystems from the territory of the
Republic of Moldova. To fulfill this aim the following objectives were outlined:
· identification of species from genera Sylvia and Phylloscopus in natural and
· identification of breeding habitats of species from genera Sylvia and Phylloscopus on
the territory of Moldova;
· revealing of biological and ecological peculiarities of the species from genera Sylvia and
Phylloscopus in reproductive period;
· emphasizing of behavioural adaptation strategies in species from genera Sylvia and
Phylloscopus in reproductive period;
· study of distribution and density of the species from genera Sylvia and Phylloscopus
depending on habitat type;
· Establishing of improvement measures of ecological conditions of recreational and
urban ecosystems in order to increase the nestling capacity of the species from genera
Sylvia and Phylloscopus.
Methodology of scientific research is constituted by the conceptions exposed in works
accomplished by Ganea I. (1976), Volceanetskii A. (1954), Bibby C., Jones M., (1998), Pesenko
I. (1982), Gomoiu M-T., (2001), Malcevskii A. (1959), Poznain L. (1979).
Scientific novelty and originality: For the first time waste studies were performed in various
biotopes from the territory of the republic, which have completed with: - revealing of biological
and ecological peculiarities of the species from genera Sylvia and Phylloscopus; - establishing of
behavioural adaptation strategies in species from genera Sylvia and Phylloscopus in reproductive
period on republic territory; - peculiarities of postembryonic development of nestling of studied
species correlated with open and semi-closed type of breeding; - emphasizing of ecological
plasticity in species from genera Sylvia and Phylloscopus.
Theoretical significance and applied value of the work: The main results of the thesis are component
part of the fundamental and applied scientific research theme of Laboratory of Ornithology of Institute
of Zoology of A.S.M. Accomplished studies correspond to main scientific directions and
researches, to national and international programs and strategies concerning biodiversity
protection and conservation. The results of investigations, in applied aspect, will serve at
recommendation elaboration regarding planting of forest shelter belts, parks, by planting tree and
brush species that allow to enhance the environmental capacity of various ecosystems, which
will help to maintain the ecological balance and improving recreational and natural biotopes.
Implementation of scientific results: The obtained results are implemented in the didactic
process at the State University of Moldova, State University from Tiraspol, Faculty of Biology.
Practical recommendations elaborated on the basis of scientific results are applied within the
implementation by „Moldsilva” Agensy.
