From the Editor

Observations of our old author, phenology and specialist weather Revnuta Grigorievich Golovko always interesting to readers. However, unfortunately, in recent years many people are not always signs «work». The reason of that — global climate change is primarily due to the impact of human activity on the environment.

Note the signs themselves, recorded by the author in the vicinity of the city of Obninsk, Kaluga region, can not be extrapolated to the whole of Central Russia.

For example, this year in the Vladimir region alder first time in many years of observations blossomed before birch, there was little beetles. This — signs of the rainy summer. We will be glad if such observations, we will send our readers naturalists from other regions of Russia.
