This article presents a historical review of ornithological research and the context of studying avifauna in the Tyumen Region during and after the war in the Soviet period (from 1941 to 1991). Here, the authors continue their work on the history of avifauna research in the Tyumen Region from 1720 to 1941 (published in 2011 and 2013).
Having studied more than 140 published references, the authors analyze the further chronology and staging in the history of studying the birds of the Tyumen Region, including the Khanty-Mansi and Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Areas.
Prevailing works study the fauna, in particular, the avifauna of various natural zones, areas, and territories, as well as distribution of separate bird species (32.5% of all works). A significant amount of works involve population ecology of birds (21.3%), as well as studying and protecting rare species (10%). Smaller part of the published works concern phenological aspects and biology of birds’ reproduction (8.7% each), as well as studying the birds’ population from various biocenoses and of different hunting-trade types (7.5% each). Fewer publications study the research techniques and quantitative accounting of birds (2.5%). The messages on the impact of anthropogenous factors on communities of birds (1.3%) are isolated.
