Vladimir Feliksovich Baginsky (b. 02.02.1938, Moscow), a scientist in the field of forest science. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2004), Doctor of Agricultural Sciences (1986), Professor (2005).

Scientific works are devoted to the identification of patterns of interrelationships of woody plants and the environment, the internal structure, structure and dynamics of pure and mixed forest phytocenoses. He modeled the optimal parameters of pure and mixed forest phytocenoses, the patterns of their thinning, the effect on climatic, soil and anthropogenic factors on the growth and productivity of forest plantations. He developed a typification of the structure of anthropogenic stands, identified ways to increase their productivity, and established the optimal parameters for the organization of the economy in them. He proposed methods of forest management and management in forests contaminated with radionuclides. Developed a new classification of forests, allowing to optimize raw materials and environmental benefits of forests. Introduced a system of standards for forest inventory, forest management design and forecast calculations into Belarus’s forestry production: optimal ages for forest cutting, a system for assessing the complex of forest resources and forest utilities, and partnerships for forest management.

Author of more than 380 scientific papers, incl. 17 monographs, books and manuals.

Prize of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus in 1997.
