The states of the populations of five dominant species of predatory mammals living in the area affected by the Kalinin Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) and in remote districts of Tver’ oblast have been compared. A total of 1120 skulls, including 708 skulls from the vicinity of the NPP, have been examined. The data on parameters characterizing similarities between the samples, the degree and structure of intrapopulation diversity, and ontogenetic stability suggest with a high probability that the Kalinin NPP has no effect on wild populations of predatory mammals.
