Estimation of the North microbe resources and microorganisms role in maintenance and
regulation of modern biogeochemical cycles by the extreme natural and industrial impact.
1. Estimation of biomass, taxonomic and functional diversity of soil bacteria, micromycetes and invertebrates.
2. Bioindication and critical loads on soil biota.
3. Microorganisms physiology and biochemistry, search of active cultures for using in
The ecological-microbiological conception of soil protection based on indicator, biosorbtion, medium - regulation and destructive activities of microorganisms in industrially transformed soils is worked out.
The microbiological and biochemical criteria of soils status assessment and fixed critical loads on soil biota are scientifically based.
New knowledge on adaptation tools and stability of soil biota towards extreme natural and anthropogenic impact is obtained; the role of microbiota in reduction of soils metal-toxicosis is fixed; ability of micromycetes to reduce the mobility of heavy metals compounds in soil by their bioimmobilization is studied.
|Practical significance of investigations:
recommendations on optimum land use in areas of large scale industrial production are
worked out and put into practice; both apply within urban ecology and improvement and
rehabilitation of agricultural land, manufacturing biologically pure production; the
experiment on bioremediation of damaged territories in the impact zone is carried out;
