In addition, we sampled muscle from wings of spring migrants harvested on the Indigirka
River Delta, Russia, from 3 to 13 June 1994.
Major rivers such as the Lena, Kolyma and Indigirka
run for thousands of kilometres.
Tundra Yukaghir (henceforward TY) is one of the two survivors, the second being Kolyma Yukaghir (henceforward KY), of a group of closely related languages spoken by the peoples (wadul/odul) that once populated the vast area of the Russian Empire between the cost of the North Polar See and the upper reaches of Yana, Indigirka
and Kolyma spreading longitudinally as far as the lower reaches of Lena and upper reaches of Anadyr (Donskoj 1996:22).
They are isolated geographically by mountain ridges and major rivers, and are named the Leno-Olenek, Predverkhoyansk, Yana, Chondon, Momo-Selenyakh, Indigirka
, and Kolyma populations.
Chromosome numbers of some plants of the northeastern Yakutia (the drainage of the Indigirka
River in its middle reaches).
The tundra areas with the most continental climate are in the eastern part of the Taymyr Peninsula and spread east to the River Kolyma across the plains of the rivers Lena, Yana, and Indigirka
En un solo barco, el Indigirka
, llego el equivalente a 45,500 kilotones de TNT, "mas de 20 veces el poder explosivo que fue lanzado por los bombarderos aliados sobre Alemania en toda la Segunda Guerra Mundial".
lowlands appeared to be the final marine staging area for birds before they traveled along inland routes (up to 70 km from the coast) and coastal routes across the lowlands, moving to more westerly summer areas that ranged from the Indigirka
Delta to the Taymyr Peninsula (Fig.
Oymyakon, the world's coldest town, probably originated as a seasonal settlement where herders spent the summer on the banks of the Indigirka
These were Chukotka, Anadyrsky River basin (1976 through 1990); the Magadansky Oblast, North Evensky region, Omolon River basin and upper Kulu River basin; South Yakutia, upper Indigirka
River basin; and northern Khabarovsky Krai, in the Okhota, Ulbeja, and Inia River basins.
Despite this broad distribution pattern, the only area where they are common is the north of Yakuty, near the courses of the Yana, the Lena, the Indigirka
, and the Kolyma.
Other colonies were subsequently discovered in the deltas of the Alazeya, Yana, Indigirka
, and Lena Rivers (Dementiev and Gladkov, 1969; Degtyarev et al.
