Special Issue Information

Modern technologies and technical solutions in several areas of the human everyday life result in considerable environmental pollution with electric and magnetic field. 
In the period of 2010 -2019 our research team published a series of 11 papers in which effect of external electric field on biologically important components of flora and fauna organisms was recognized. They were small inorganic components such as oxygen, nitrogen, water, ammonia, carbon dioxide and methane, alkanols, saccharides,, porphine and metal porphyrines, proteogenic amino acids,  selected di- and tripeptides, fatty acids and their glycerides,  model complex lipids, pyrimidine and purine bases and deoxyribonucleic acids. 
Our studies involved numerical simulations employing advanced computational methods.
Now, we extended our studies to an influence of static magnetic field of varying flux density upon the same biologically important objects.
Therefore, currently, our research team developed studies on the effect of static magnetic field on flora and fauna. They have a common title “Towards recognizing mechanisms of effects evoked by static magnetic field in living organisms”. Our studies involve numerical simulations employing advanced computational methods in computer vacuum to evaluate an influence of static magnetic field of 0, 0.1, 1.0, 10 and 100T flux density upon such biologically important objects as alkanols, saccharides, porphin and metal porphyrines, proteogenic amino acids,  selected di- and tripeptides, fatty acids and their glycerides,  model complex lipids, pyrimidine and purine bases and deoxyribonucleic acids. At that opportunity, we discovered a novel phenomenon which we call magnetochromism. 

Currently, we have accomplished computations and relevant considerations for (i) alkanols, (ii) carbohydrates, (iii) porphine, (iv) metalloporphyrines  and (v) proteogenic amino acids and these 5 papers are now ready for submission. The studies on remaining objects: (vi) selected di- and tripeptides, (vii) fatty acids and their glycerides, (viii) model complex lipids, (ix) pyrimidine and purine bases and (x) deoxyribonucleic acids and (xi) magnetochromism will be ready for publication within 2-3 months.

Special Issue Information

The annual "International Seminar of Ecology - 2021" was held online on 29-30th September and provided a platform for students, early-stage and experienced scientists to present their research in the fields of:

  • Biodiversity and conservation biology
  • The biotic and abiotic impact on the living nature, ecological risk and bioremediation
  • Landscape ecology, ecosystem research and services
  • Ecological agriculture and
  • Ecological education.

A total of seven plenary lectures, 28 oral and 31 posters presentations were presented by scientists working in Bulgaria, Egypt, Portugal, Russia, Germany, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and the U.S.A. Manuscripts of the materials, presented at the Seminar and recommended by the reviewers will be published in this special issue of BioRisk.

The "International Seminar of Ecology - 2021" was organized by the Union of Scientists of Bulgaria, Section "Biology" and by the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research of the Bulgarian Academy of Science, with the financial support of Ltd Pensoft and BULGAP Ltd.
