Moon, David (2009) 'Ekologicheskaya istoriya rossiiskikh stepei : Vasilii Dokuchaev i neurozhai 1891 g = The environmental history of the Russian Steppes : Vasilii Dokuchaev and the harvest failure of 1891.', Voprosy istorii estestvoznaniya i tekhniki., 3 . pp. 48-71.
This article examines aspects of the environmental histories of the Russian steppes in the long term and in a comparative framework by focusing on the work of the prominent Russian scientist Vasilii Dokuchaev in response to the drought and harvest failure that afflicted large part of the steppes in 1891. Dokuchaev analysed the causes of the disaster in the long-term context in natural and human-induced changes in the environment. He drew up a plan to address the environmental constraints on agriculture in the region, and led a scientific expedition to examine the feasibility of putting parts of his plan into practice.
