ABSTRACT

On the basis of the long-term studies regularities of the heavy metals accumulation by different species of bottom invertebrates, inhabiting fresh water bodies with different level of pollution, have been studied. Species-“monitors” for assessing of the level of pollution by the heavy metals have been determined. Possibility of the comparative assessment of the water environment status according to the level of the heavy metals accumulation using organisms-“monitors” (biomonitoring) have been critically considered.
