  Brief description   Abiotic research and monitoring:
- construction of meteorological station and holding of environmental monitoring and environment state monitoring;
- complex researches including hydrological, hydro chemical and hydro biological observations characteristic of water subjects of the reserve with use of modern analytical equipment of a programme “Assessment of impact of littoral biocoenosis on functioning of the Teletskoye Lake ecosystem: water regime, nature protecting monitoring, bio-resources”.
Biotic research and monitoring:
- researches of population biology, phenology and regular registration of number dynamics of invertebrate and vertebrate animals;
- checking state of population of rare plant and animal complexes and objects in the area of the whole reserve;
- checking dynamics succession of ecological complexes;
- socio-economic researches.
Monitoring hold on the base of standard methods in a form of standard researches by the reserve’s scientific department and expedition inspections on contract base with other scientific research organizations.
