Kaliningrad State Technical University ; abbreviated KSTU) is a technical university at Victory Square in Kaliningrad, Russia. It is located in the former combined Amtsgericht and Landgericht building of Königsberg, Germany.Having been founded on the basis of Moscow Technical Institute for the Fishery Industry, KSTU is justly considered as the beginning of Russian higher fishery education and a range of scientific schools in navigation, commercial fishery, and progressive technologies of food production. At present, it develops as a multi-disciplinary institution considering the demands and the economic potential of the Region, maintaining traditions of high quality specialist training for the fishery industry.Students are trained in 42 higher educational courses at various levels, namely, Bachelor, Professional Diploma, Master, Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Science Degrees; professionals are offered various upgrading courses.600 teachers and researchers, including 75 professors holding the Doktor Nauk Degree, 80 academicians and corresponding members of international and public Russian Academies of Science form the faculty if the University. 28 scientists are awarded titles of honoured workers of science, Russian higher education, branches of science, and the fishery industry.Scientific research is traditionally undertaken in many areas being the most important for the modern navigation, fisheries and seafood processing, power engineering, construction, production automation and control, information technology, natural science, nano-technology, etc. The University founded effectively working schools in ichthyology, commercial fishery, shipbuilding and repair, automation of production and control, technique and technology of raw materials processing. There are 12 research laboratories and scientific centres, four of them being of the applied character. Four dissertation councils work at the University.Recently, intensification of scientific work has involved the University into 25 federal scientific programmes, as well as in TEMPUS and TACIS projects. Regional representatives of public professional Academies of Science applied Centre for new Information Technologies, Research Institute for Maritime Engineering Service, Institute of Ecology and Sustainable Development successfully operate on the University basis.International co-operation of the University with foreign educational and research organizations is constantly expanding, with the Baltic Sea region in particular.Developing progressively, Kaliningrad State Technical University looks ahead with confidence.

The contact of friction lives with its own very interesting life. It gets evolved. This evolution of contact changes the states and properties of it. How can we describe the tribocontact evolution? Any nature systems are very well described by thermodynamic method. The contact of friction has the system properties and therefore one may use thermodynamic approach. From thermodynamic point of view friction is a competition of two simultaneous, interconnected and opposite tendencies of accumulating latent (potential) energy of various kinds of defects and damages of contact volumes structures and releasing (dissipation) energy due to various relaxation processes. This friction adaptive-dissipative model for analysis of evolution of tribocontact as elementary tribosystem is examined. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.

This paper contains a review of beetle species (Coleoptera) described from Baltic amber. The compiled checklist contains 434 species from 149 extinct and 138 extant genera. At this moment, 90 families are registered. The best known and therefore most diverse families are: Staphylinidae (77 described spp.), Curculionidae (46 spp.), Carabidae (32 spp.), Scirtidae (21 spp.), Cleridae (17 spp.), Elateridae (16 spp.), Dermestidae (16 spp.) and Cerambycidae (15 spp.). Possibly, about 530 species of beetles can be additionally described from Baltic amber. Copyright © 2013 Nature Research Centre.

A new fossil spider beetle, Sucinoptinus bukejsi sp. nov. from the Baltic amber (Eocene) is described and compared with the related fossil species Sucinoptinus sucini Belle ́s et Vitali, 2007. The new species differs from S. sucini in the morphology of antennae, comparatively longer onichium and shape of punctuation on elytra.

The false darkling beetles Serropalpus ryzhkovianus sp. nov., S. vivax sp. nov., S. ingemmescus sp. nov., Abdera hoffeinsorum sp. nov., A. rikojotensis sp. nov. and Electroabdera marisbaltici gen. nov., sp. nov. are described from Baltic amber. The new melandryid taxa are compared with the morphologically close extant and fossil ones. Pseudohallomenus cretaceus Nikitsky 1977 described in Melandryidae has been transferred into the family Tetratomidae Billberg, 1820. The check-list of all described Melandryidae species from Cretaceous and Tertiary is given.

Eleven new species of death-watch and spider beetles from Baltic amber are described and illustrated: Ernobius varmicus sp. nov., E. barticus sp. nov., E. notangicus sp. nov., E. nadravicus sp. nov., Episernus palvenikensis sp. nov. (Ernobiinae); Dryophilus hoffeinsorum sp. nov., Homophthalmus kunnegsgarbensis sp. nov. (Dryophilinae); Dignomus regiomontanus sp. nov., Ptinus scalovicus sp. nov., P. burukovskyi sp. nov. and P. anastasiae sp. nov. (Ptininae). The newly described taxa are compared with the extinct and related extant representatives of the genera. New fossil records on Sucinoptinus sucini Bellés et Vitali, 2007, S. bukejsi Alekseev, 2012, and Ptinus (Gynopterus) balticus Bellés et Vitali, 2007 are presented. A check-list of all described fossil Ptinidae from Baltic amber is given. © 2014 Nature Research Centre.

The first representative of the family Salpingidae Leach, 1815 is described from Baltic amber. Protolissodema ulrikae gen. et sp. nov. is the most similar to the extant genera Sphaeriestes Stephen, 1829, Rabocerus Mulsant, 1859 and especially Lissodema Curtis, 1833 and differs by the shape of pronotum, by the distinctly separated procoxae, by the not striate-punctate elytra and by the structure of antennae.

The first representative of the family Tetratomidae Billberg, 1820 is described from Eocene Baltic amber. Tetratoma nikitskyi sp. nov. is assigned to subgenus Abstrulia and differs from all known species of the subgenus by the structure of the antennae and prothorax.


Nineteen species of the order Coleoptera listed in the Red Data Book of Lithuania (2007) are known to exist on the territory of the Kaliningrad Region: 17 of them were recorded in the Kaliningrad Region during the investigation conducted by the author in 1989-2009, while the presence of two other species in the region is known only from oral reports. The current paper presents information on sampling locations of the above-mentioned 19 species and six other beetle species that are rare in the region. Also, the article discusses some problems associated with the compilation of threatened insects' list and surveys potential measures for protecting vanishing beetle populations in the Kaliningrad Region.
