The Features of Distribution of a Wolf (Canis lupus) in Novosibirsk Region (according to Storing up Skins during the Period from 1934 till 1968)
Basing on volumes of storing up wolf skins during the period from 1934 till 1968 the regression clustering of distribution of a wolf in Novosibirsk Region is carried out. The research establishes environment factors correlating with irregularity in its distributions and reveals essential distinctions in wolfs placing. Areas are classified on similarity result coefficient of storing up skins. Thus, one can separates out three provinces: southern, median and northeast. The maximum quantity of skins in recalculation on 100 km2 has been stored up in a southern province and it is essential lesser in the others.
Key words: wolf, snow depth, storing up skins, zonality, correlation, clustering, coefficient of similarity, percentage of forest cover of the area, heterogeneity of habitat, population density of people, distribution of animals, force and generality of the connection, structural graph, heat supply, factor classification.
