THIS PUBLICATION IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF DR. LEV. N. ANDREYEV
Lev Nikolaevich ANDREYEV
Professor Lev Andreyev was Chairman of the Council of Botanical Gardens of Russia and a
member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Professor Andreyev first came to the Main Botanical Garden in 1954 as a postgraduate student.
As its Director from 1981 to 2002 he brought energy and enthusiasm to the Garden. He
contributed greatly to the growth of the Moscow Main Botanical Garden, turning it into a leading
institution among Russian botanic gardens and developing extensive international relations.
In 1984 Professor Andreyev was elected to the Board of the European-Mediterranean Division of
the International Association of Botanic Gardens (IABG); he became its vice-president in 1986.
He was also the Russian project leader for bilateral exchanges between Russian and American
botanists for 30 years.
Professor Andreyev was vice-president of the Russian Botanical Society and to the end of his life
editor-in-chief of the Journal of General Biology. The botanical community has lost an
outstanding researcher, enthusiastic scientist, skilled administrator, a kindhearted person and
In September 2005 seventy botanists and ecologists from the U.S. and Russia took part in a
four-day conference at Wilson College in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania to mark the 30th
anniversary of bilateral collaboration on conservation of rare and endangered plant species
under the U.S.-Russia Environmental Agreement. Titled "New Roots for the 21st Century,"
the conference enabled the two countries to examine the current status of cooperation and
discuss future priorities.
The conference opened with plenary presentations by Dr. Thomas S. Elias, Director, U.S.
National Arboretum and Dr. Lev N. Andreyev, Director Emeritus, Main Botanical Garden,
Moscow. Both speakers reviewed the accomplishments of U.S.-Russia botanical exchanges
since 1975 and looked ahead to priority activities through 2010.
The botanical program traces its origin to a 1972 agreement signed by the U.S. and U.S.S.R. to
facilitate bilateral scientific cooperation in the field of environmental protection. Over the
years this Program has resulted in more than 45 exchange trips which have made possible the
sharing of plant materials, books, information and reference photographs, and enhanced
conservation efforts. Early on, both countries agreed the purpose of the Exchange Program
• Organize joint botanical expeditions to diverse areas of floristic significance in both countries;
• Exchange seeds and other propagules of species native to each country for experimental
cultivation in the other country in compliance with regulations governing introduction of exotic
plants and parts thereof;
• Share information on threatened and endangered species of plants in each country;
• Exchange scientists to study the comparative evolution of plant taxa occurring in both countries,
investigate the causes of species endangerment and work out methods to avert losses;
• Develop specific programs relating to the cultivation in both countries of threatened and
endangered species of plants, wild relatives of cultivated plants, and other species which may be
useful in meeting human needs.
Breakout Sections and Topics
The conference agenda was divided into six sections, each covering one major theme and its
related topics. Each session began with an initial “springboard” paper by Russian and American
presenters to launch the section topic. The work of the conference was accomplished through a
combination of plenary and breakout sections, and group discussion, all simultaneously
interpreted into Russian and English. The focus was on dialogue rather than individual paper
presentations. For each section a set of recommendations was drafted to help guide future

Aleksei Igorevich MAKRIDIN
Aleksei Makridin began work at the Moscow Main Botanical Garden in 1977, immediately
following graduation from Moscow State University. At the Garden he advanced from research
intern and junior scientist to become Chief of the Department of Dendrology. His main
professional interest was the study and selection of woody plants for parks, towns and cities. Dr.
Makridin published more than 50 papers on the structure of southern taiga ecosystems, and on
the introduction, seed production and accidental flora of the woody plants of Central Russia.
Dr. Makridin played an active role in fostering international botanical relations. He organized
several botanical expeditions to North Korea and helped develop bilateral cooperation with that
country. In 2005 he took part in the U.S.-Russia “New Roots for the 21st Century” botanical
conference in the United States.
Dr. Makridin was a professional-level downhill skier, frequently participating in slalom and speed
races. He was a kind person and reliable friend, always ready to help. Warm memories of
Aleksei Makridin will live forever in our hearts.
