In the review, the authors consider the relationship: plants - wild ungulates in zonal ecological systems. The authors cite the impact loads, at different densities of elk, Siberian roe deer, red deer, sika deer and wild boar, on plants during foraging and marking of the territory. Relationships have arisen over a long period of ecosystem dynamics. The impacts of animals are manifested at different time stages of reforestation. Intact natural complexes (NC) with background plants affected by ungulates have been preserved in reserves (standards of nature). Natural-atropogenic complexes (NAC) have been significantly developed by economic activity. When analyzing the forage spectra of ungulates over the 80 year period, we took into account the quality characteristics of the state of the NC environment, the consumption of plants by animals, and their geochemical parameters in the system of plants-ungulates-excrement-litter-soil. Monitoring of the spectra of forage background plants of animals as bioindicators of the ecological assessment of the state of the habitat and its components in specific NC and NAC is necessary for the preservation, reproduction, use and modeling of highly productive communities of plants and animals in integrated nature management.

Keywords: wild ungulate animals of the Urals, spectra of forage plants of ungulates, indicators of the quality of habitats and forage plants, integrated nature management.

The macrokinetic characteristics of the response of vegetation cover to soil contamination with heavy metals in the vicinity of Norilsk were studied to justify the approach to ranking the soil cover of territories under the influence of metallurgical plant emissions by the degree of intensity of their ecological state. The purpose of the study was to substantiate the possibility of an objective quantitative assessment of the ecological state of soils contaminated with heavy metals based on remote sensing data using a theoretical model of the response of living things to stressors in the form of heavy metals. The study is based on obtaining experimental data of the "dose-response" type and their analysis using the previously derived theoretical model of the response of a living animal to the stressor, the special points of which set the threshold concentrations of the stressor, which serve as the basis for ranking soils according to the degree of intensity of their ecological state.

Keywords: ecological state, bioindication, mathematical modeling, analysis of remote sensing data, vegetation index

The article presents the generalized results of a twenty-year monitoring of PCB content in the soil at a site near LLC «Serpukhov condenser plant «KVAR». It has been shown, that in the period from 2003 to 2019, the PCB concentration in the upper 20 cm layer in the central part of the plot decreased from 4300 to 5.5 mg/kg that was 90 times more than their MPC in soil. PCB reduction occurred because of slow microbial degradation of mainly 3- and 4-chlorinated congeners, as well as their removal with surface or groundwater to the site boundary.

Keywords: contaminated soil, PCB congeners, biodegradation, leaching

Contamination of Heavy Metals of the Peksha River with Trace Elements and Assessment of Technogenic Pressure

G.Yu. Tolkachev, Cand. Sc. (Geography), B.I. Korzhenevskiy, Can. Sc. (Geology), All-Russian Research Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Land Reclamation named after A.N. Kostyakova

As indicators of pollution, we consider the contamination of the heavy metals: As, Hg, Cd, Zn, Pb, Cu, Cr, Co, Ni, Fe, Mn of the Peksha river with the listed microelements. The assessment was carried out without taking into account specific pollutant enterprises. A fraction of less than 0.02 mm was extracted from the sediments. The content of these elements and the values obtained were ranked according to the classification of pollution classes (igeo-classes), levels of technogenic pressure and the total indicator of toxic pollution. The highest level of pollution of the Peksha is observed in the upper reaches, at the exit from the town of Kolchugino - an industrial and transport hub with a population of more than 40 thousand people. Downstream pollution levels of sediments are significantly reduced – self-cleaning occurs due to the lack of active sources of pollution.

Keywords: technogenic pressure, sediments, pollution level, heavy metals, sorb fraction, environmental monitoring.

The analysis of the lists of species of fungi listed in the national and regional Red Data Books of the Russian Federation. Currently, more than 800 species of fungi are protected at the regional level in the country, of which 24 species have federal protection status. An analysis of spatial distribution has shown that in a significant territory of Russia the occurrence of species of fungi protected at the federal level is low. The diversity of these species is concentrated mainly in the central part of the Russian Plain, as well as in the regions of the Amur-Sakhalin, Crimean-Caucasian, Altai-Sayan physical-geographical countries. In the Red Data Books of 80 subjects of the Russian Federation, fungi are included in the lists of rare and threatened species. According to the number of species of fungi protected at the regional level, central part of the Russian Plain the Kola-Karelian and Altai-Sayan physical-geographical countries are distinguished.
