Welcome everybody coming here!

Idea of this site was born after VI International Marmot meeting in Cogne, Italy.  There were a lot of nice people gathered by their interest to marmots, but between these international meetings they have no place for online communication. This site is supposed to be in English with exception of separate pages in other languages.

I’m going to use this site for collection of the following information:

1. Any news of Marmot Community: meetings, conferences, publications and other activities.

2. Databank of persons, studying marmots.

3. Bank of abstracts and full articles about marmots in different languages.

4. Photobank of marmots, their habitat and other photos concerning studying process (procedures, equipment, and so on).

NB! This is a private non-commercial project. I will highly appreciate your paricipation and possible help. All rights for the exposed data, articles and photos belong to their authors. Sending it here for publications you agree with their publication and possible use in non-commercial puposes.
