Alexey Yablokov "is a prominent Russian environmentalist, former member of USSR parliament and environmental advisor to the Russian President Yeltsin and to the Gorbachev administration. He pioneered the application of "phenetic" marks (the smallest differences in anatomical structures such as the difference in ear shape on the two sides of a person) to the detection of animal population structure and environmental stress. Yablokov has been active in many efforts to reveal conservation and pollution challenges in Russia addressing such issues as illegal whaling. Yablokov focuses on the problems of radiation contamination, particularly in marine ecosystems and biology of the marine mammals." [1]
