Phytoindication of Suffozionic Phenomena on Muddy Volcanic Breccias in the Crimea
The phytoindicative importance of syntaxons of suffozionic phenomena on muddy volcanic breccias has been determined. Syntaxons induced infiltration processes have been discussed. The additional indicative characteristics of communities have been analysed: systematic and geographical structures, basic biomorph, structure of surface shoots, structure and depth of rootsystem, type of strategy, ecomorphs on the light regime, ecomorphs on moisturing and ecomorphs on soil riches and salts. It is established that the degree of recognizableness of relief forms on syntaxons-indicators is high enough more then 85%, while additional signs do not possess sufficient indicative features.

Experimental Study of Influence of Interspecific Interactions on the Growth and Vital Condition in Communities of Associations of Salicornietum Suaedosum (acuminate)
The character of competitive interactions between plants in the community of annual euhalophytes was analysed. The positive correlation of morphometric parameters and the growth from the intensity of interspecific interaction of plants in the community was revealed. Equal values of relative growth rate of Salicornia europeae and Suaeda acuminate at the interaction with each other indicate the presence of symmetrically-measured competition in communities of annual euhalophytes.

Features of Adaptive Reactions at the Black Sea Dolphin Bottlenose (Tursiops Truncatus Ponticus) to Conditions of Bondage in Connection with Environmental Problems of Black Sea
Dynamics of changes of blood plasma parameters of the Black Sea dolphin bottlenose at adaptation to conditions of bondage has been investigated. It was revealed, that during adaptation of dolphins to conditions of dwelling in bondage there is a mobilization of power resources of the organism. Also changes in an albuminous exchange were observed.

The Artificial Plantings in Crimea
The artificial forests, wind-break-zones, parks, park-forests are very important for forming high qualities of the natural environment. These functions are supporting the environment parameters and ecological balance that are especially valuable for climatic resort regions. The important role of artificial plantings and special nature protection modes in Crimea are considered.

Influence of Pirogenic Factor on Artificial Pine’s Plantation in the Simferopol District
The comparative analysis of proceeding of pine’s plantation in the Simferopol forest-park forestry from 2005 to 2009 years after the upper and lower fires was conducted. The dynamics of quantity of pine-tree regrowth and change of stand’s morphological characteristics were described on the different types of burnt wood. Dependence of survival regrowth in the different age groups from growth conditions was determined.

Characteristics in Definition, Regulation and Management of Bulgarian Protected Areas
Protected areas worldwide represent one of the most efficient tools for biodiversity protection. Unfortunately, the systems of such areas in various countries and continents differ in their scope of extent. Such differentiation in turn causes lots of problems concerning preservation of the existing genetic fund. Based on the IUCN classification (International Union for Conservation of Nature – World Conservation Union, 1994) which defines various categories of protected areas, this paper makes an attempt to review some specific characteristics in defining various categories of protected areas in Bulgaria (National and Nature parks, Reserves and Managed reserves, Nature landmarks and Protected localities), as well as to analyze the existing problems arising in the process of their regulation and management. This paper supports the thesis, that the definition of protected areas should be the starting point for the purpose of their designation. According to IUCN a protected area represents a land territory or aquatory, designated for biodiversity protection and conservation as well as for their natural and cultural values, which are maintained through legislative or other efficient means. This definition encompasses the combination of protected areas and all categories should comply with it. It is necessary to be mentioned that despite the fact that all types of protected areas meet the requirements of this definition, the specific purposes and tasks for which they are proclaimed as protected areas, they have various character. The main purposes of maintenance are the following: naturescientific activities; protection of the original status of nature; conservation of their species and genetic fund; preservation of the environmental functions; protection on natural and cultural sites and landmarks; recreation and tourism; education; long-term use of the natural ecosystems; maintenance of cultural and traditional characteristics. As a result from the basic purposes, combinations and priorities, in accordance with IUCN requirements (1994) the following forms of protection are defined: I. Strict regime of protection – Nature reserves; II. Conservation of ecosystems and organization of tourism and recreational activities – Category National Parks; III. Protection of natural landmarks – Natural monuments; IV. Conservation through management intervention – Protected localities; V. Landscape protection – Protected landscape; VI. Sustainable use of natural ecosystems – Protected areas for the use of their natural resources. The conducted research has found that although Bulgaria has been one of the first countries adopting the IUCN classification (1994), it still needs lots of efforts to comply with all requirements at theoretical and practical level. The latter includes mainly issues concerning regulation, protection as well as management of protected areas.
