Methodology of Socio-Ecological Monitoring using Cytogenetic Methods

Conference paper
Part of the NATO Science for Peace and Security Series book series (NAPSC)

Anthropogenic violation of the principles of rational environmental management has resulted in degradation changes in social life and environment. It has caused emergence of abnormal ecosystems and changes in gene pool. For enhancement of socio-ecosystems and improvement of the national gene pool, it is necessary to implement complex systems of socio-ecological monitoring. A methodology of socio-ecological monitoring has been developed. It is based on high-sensitivity indication systems of various levels of organization, and standardized procedures of integral estimation of the state of environmental objects according to toxic and mutagenic background, and level of health of different age groups. All this made it possible to define integral tests, which allow assessing ecological and genetic danger (risks) imposed on biota and human by mutagenic and ecological factors.
