The Leaning Particularities of the Muscle and Liver Protein Composition of Scorpion - Fishs from the Bays with Different Level of Antropogenical Influence
The protein composition of the muscles tissue of scorpion-fish (Scorpaena porcus), which was taken from Sevastopols bays with different level of pollution, was studied using the electrophoretic method in polyakryamid gel. The differences between electrophoretic muscles and livers protein spectres of the fishes from the bays with different antropogenic pressing were obtained. These differences were shown in changing of the electrophoretic mobility, in distribution of the protein fraction by electrophoretic zones and in their heterogenic. The qualitative characteristics are confirmed by statistical analyses. The learning particularities of the electrophoretic spectres muscles protein may be used for estimation of the influence antropogenical factors to the water organisms.

Larval Growth of Wild Bees Hoplitis Manicata and Osmia Cornuta (Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Megachilidae) in Conditions of Excess of Artificial Feed
Bee larvae of H. manicata and O. cornuta were grown on artificial loafs of extra mass. Artificial loafs are made out of the mixture of sugar syrup (balanced mixture of glucose and fructose) and dry pollen loads of honey-bees milled in a mixer. The considerable number (40% O. cornuta, 71% H. manicata) of larvae had died before their development finished. The percentage of larvae deaths was higher among larvae which have been replaced on the artificial feed in the later stages of development. Increase of dead bees number is registered among individuals grown on excess of natural feed (10% O. cornuta, 40% H. manicata). Individuals of H. manicata grown on artificial loafs of extra mass have smaller (by 68%) mass than individuals grown on natural loafs, and individuals of O. cornuta bigger (by 8% among female and 23% among male). Individuals O. cornuta grown on excess feed leave their cocoons earlier, and individuals H. manicata later than bees control set.

Prerequisites for Development of the Small and Medium - Sized Businesses in Green Tourism within the Context of Sustainability
The idea of the sustainable development was created as an alternative of the deepening ecologic crisis for the last few decades. It was shaped in the 70-ties of the twentieth century, implying three interrelated dimensions environmental, economic and social sustainability. Following the UN policy concerning sustainable development, the World Tourism Organization (WTO) made serious efforts toward systematization of the theoretical knowledge about tourism sustainability. The measures were aimed to encourage the development of sustainable tourism. This paper makes an attempt to trace back the evolution of the terms sustainable tourism, alternative forms of tourism, rural and ecotourism. It also gives reasons for the introduction of the term green tourism as well as the necessity for development of this form of tourism in the context of sustainability. The green tourism is a tourism of the small and medium-sized enterprises. With regard to that the role of the small and medium-sized businesses as well as their prerequisites for development in the scope of green tourism have been under observation. There have been used the results from survey inquiries which service as a basis to make conclusions about the main prerequisites for development of the small and medium-sized business in green tourism, which include their economic, managerial and ecological aspects.
