(15.08.1903 - 21.10.1977)
Born in Byelorussia, in the village. He graduated from Moscow University (1927). Thesis performed under rukovodstvomA.S.Serebrovskogo, participants Chetverikov. In 1927-1930. studied in graduate school, and since 1930. taught vMoskovskom University (1930-1937 gg.) and has also worked voVsesoyuznom Institute of Animal. In 1938-1948 he. zavedovalkafedroy breeding and genetics of the Moscow Institute fur. V1939 g. doctorate. After the August meeting of Agricultural Sciences 1948. PF Rokitskii more godaprepodaval mathematics at the Moscow suburban school for young workers. Since 1949, Mr. po1957. worked in Mr.. Syktyvkar in the Komi Branch of USSR Academy of Sciences, zaveduyuotdelom zoology and animal. In 1957-1960 he. worked voVsesoyuznom Institute of Scientific and Technical Information zamestitelemglavnogo editor of a refereed journal "Biology". In 1960 g.pereezzhaet in Minsk, where he leads the Department of Zoology pozvonochnyhBelorusskogo State University, and since 1965. - Laboratoriyuteoreticheskoy Genetics, Institute of Genetics and Cytology, BSSR. As a student, PF Rokitskii participated in poinitsiative initiated and led by Chetverikov studies prirodnyhpopulyatsy Drosophila. Later his interests focused naproblemah phenogenetics and it had worked well in materialedrozofily problem field of gene. In the formulation of the problem onottalkivalsya of ideas Koltsov of "force fields" in individualnomrazvitii. Later, in the 30th years, PF Rokitskii asked izucheniyuotbora and induced variability. They were held first in SSSRopyty to study the genetic effects of radiation mlekopitayuschih.Izuchalas the effectiveness of artificial selection in natural iindutsirovannoy exposure to variability in Drosophila (the latter was more effective sluchaeotbor, . that was essential dlyaobosnovaniya capabilities of Radiation Breeding),
. During his work in the Komi PF Rokitskii organized izuchenievliyaniya on animals and plants increased radioactivity in the otdelnyhrayonah Komi, and also worked in the field of animal. Fame got the book PF Rokitskii. In 1932, Mr.. He izdaluchebnik genetics for livestock experts, which went through several editions; v1962 g. out also repeatedly reissued Foundations variatsionnoystatistiki for biologists, one of the most popular in the 60th-nachale70's, the guide to biometrics. Employees PF Rokitskii at the Institute of Genetics and Cytology, Academy BSSRpod his leadership began to develop problems in mathematical genetics of experimental mutagenesis.
