Specious content and quantity characteristics of microorganiams which lead to soil “blooming” in natural, anthropogenic, and urbanized ecosystems are shown in the article. In natural ecosystems algae and cyanobacteria communities develop in gradual succession stages, from unicellular green algae and Xanthophyta, filamentous green algae and nonheterocyst cyanobacteria to heterocyst cyanobacteria. Agricultural soil “blooming” has some peculiarities, irrespective of the place, season, soil type, dominating groupings. Among the “blooming” dominants cyanobacteria and green algae of the...
Development of technologies for biodegradation of plant wastes in order to obtain new useful products can not only reduce pollution of the environment, but also provide a raw material base for biotechnology. The possibility of using the basilial xylotrophic fungus Hericium erinaceus as a destructor of plant wastes with simultaneous production of economically valuable secondary products was studied. As a nutrient substrate for the production of fruiting bodies of the fungus, mixtures of straw, oak...

The possibility of using the visualization methods for identify areas of significant climate changes of plant communities in Mezenskaya and Kanin tundra was tested on basis of Modis and Landsat data over the period of 1988-2009 years. The greatest changes in the plant communities for period of twenty years observations were noted at the borders of taliks zone with forming willows, dwarf birch and spruce forests. For the period 2000-2009 years near the 62% of...
The preparations based on residual nutrition media of basidiomycetes Trametes hirsuta and T. maxima and designed for degradation of lignin-containing wastes have been subjected to bioassay using different test-objects (microalgae, infusoria, daphnids, and spermatozoa). When standard glucose-peptone nutrition media was used for the fungi growth, the obtained bio-preparations were demonstrated not to be toxic to the selected test objects and were therefore concluded to be safe. In case with copper ions added to the nutrition...
We modeled toxic acute and chronic hepatitits and cirrhosis on 60 Vistar line rats by carbon tetrachloride (CTC) injections. Dien conjugates and malon dialdehyde was tested in blood plasma, erythrocytes and liver homogenates. It was stated, that CTC intoxication leaded to lypoperoxidation changes in early period after CTC injection. Strongly pronounced activation of lypoperoxidation was found in liver homogenates. It was shown that prolonged CTC intoxication is a risk factor of oxidative stress chronization
