This article analyzes 50 Russian sources published in 1991-2017 (which describe the time interval from the beginning of the 20th century to the present) on the questions of phenology of mammals in connection with climate change. Publications cover the territory of 30 RF subjects, as well as larger Russian territorial units and a number of the CIS countries. 46% of the analyzed sources deal directly with individual phenological issues, while 40% — with the population dynamics. These texts consider phenological response of about 45 mammal species representing 1, 2 and 3 orders in predator ecosystems. The author finds the academic coverage of issues on the phenological response of mammals on climate changes to be insufficient. He concludes that cliate has an influence on phenology, population dynamics, and mammals’ areas of living; the author also formulates the tasks for further researches.
