Smagol, V. M., Gavris, G. G.



At given time, wisentís metpopulation in Ukraine is in the state of resumption of biological characteristics of this species, which determines the need to control for the animals origin. Such studies assess the condition of each subpopulation, as well as to carry out the selection measures for conservation of the overall genetic variability of species. In modern conditions the success of wisent restoration depends on implementation of the national and international programs, the help of maecenas, the scale agitation among the peoples as well as the interest of users of hunting grounds and conservation areas.
