Biography Janine Boris Timofeyevich
Born March 4, 1931, Mr.. G. Orenburg. He graduated from the Geological Faculty of Moscow State University (1954).
Candidate of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences (1959), Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences (1986). Professor of Palaeontology Geological Faculty (1989).
Vice-President of the All-Russia Geological Society (1991), a member of the Moscow Society of Naturalists (1959), a member of the All-Russia Paleontological Society (1974). Member of the paleoecology (1978), paleoihnologii (1978), and taphonomy (1987) with the Scientific Council of RAS on the problems of paleobiology and evolution of the organic world. A member of a specialized council on paleontology and stratigraphy at Moscow State University (1980).
. Award MOIP (1983).
. Research interests: fossil bivalves of the Jurassic and Cretaceous stratigraphy of the Lower Cretaceous of Eurasia, the total palaeoecology, Taphonomy, paleobiogeografiya
. Developed a new system of unit Hippuritida (class Bivalvia); from a study of 180 species and 60 genera produced an audit rudistov from the Upper Jurassic and Cretaceous deposits of the Carpathians, . Crimea, . Caucasus and Central Asia to establish the sequence in time of new elements of morphological organization rudistov and explained that the overall sustained development of the road idioadaptatsii and specialization,
. In the evolution rudistov distinguishes three stages of biological development, determining factors of the evolution rudistov believes climate and fluctuations in sea level. Established the main patterns of global dissemination rudistov has identified areas of the indigenous development and migration routes of the group, gave a description rudistovyh faunas of paleozoogeograficheskim areas. In the field of taphonomy develops ideas IO Ephraim on the laws of formation of sites of fossil marine organisms. Participated in writing a series of collective monographs, as a co-author of the sections of the Lower Cretaceous of the Crimea. Carried out field research in the Carpathians, Caucasus, Mangyshlak Pamirs, in the Crimea, Uzbekistan, in Chukotka and the Russian Platform and abroad (Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia). Topic of Ph.D. thesis: Bivalves Valanginian and Hauterivian of Crimea (detachments Schizodonta, Heterodonta, Rudistae). Subject doctoral dissertation: Rudisty Jurassic and Cretaceous.
Reads lectures General Paleontology, Invertebrate Paleontology. Section bivalves, Paleoecology and Taphonomy, Paleobiogeografiya. Participated in training practices Geological Survey in the Crimea, on the fauna of the White Sea, on the geology and geophysics at the Black and Mediterranean Seas.
