To the Question about the Modern Ecology Contents
The article reflects authors point of view on a volume and contents of modern ecology. It is shown that this science during all history of existence has suffered few stages of its expansion. In early 1970th it was completely formed as a fundamental discipline, but at the same time, it was started the new phase of the expansion of subject and tasks, related to the environmental management. Abroad, after the UNO conference on the environmental management in Stockholm in 1972, the environmental management and ecology became independent in the accordance with principles of the accepted Declaration. In Ukraine such division did not happen, and as a rule, ecology and environmental management are still considered as the same discipline. In this connection considered the question about their interaction at different levels.

The pollinators’ composition in the species from the genus Scrophularia (Scrophulariaceae) in the flora of Crimea with special reference to diplopterous wasps (Hymenoptera, Vespidae)
The pollinators composition has been studied in the five species of figworts of the seven ones growing in Crimea: Scrophularia umbrosa, S. nodosa, S. scopolii, S. variegata subsp. rupestris and S. canina subsp. bicolor. Diplopterous wasps are the most effective and specialized pollinators in the majority of the studied species. Vespidophilous pollinating syndrome is typical for the species from the section Scrophularia (S. umbrosa, S. nodosa and S. scopolii) and syrphidophilous one for S. canina subsp. bicolor (section Canina). The pollinators composition in S. variegata subsp. rupestris is known insufficiently. Morphometric parameters of the flowers in the studied species have been given and their relations with pollinators composition have been discussed. All species from the family Vespidae recorded on the figworts flowers with number of studied specimens have been listed. The hypothesis of wasp-pollination as the plesiomorphic character of the genus Scrophularia was speculated. On this view the species from the section Canina had changed their pollination syndrome to pollination mostly by hoverflies via the deficit of the diplopterous wasps as the effective pollinators in the open landscapes. The new key to identification of the species from the genus Scrophularia in the flora of Crimea has been proposed.

Deviations in the order of sex displacement and violations of the «mass – gender» concordance in the nests of megachilid-bees (Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Megachilidae). Report I
Deviations in the displacement order of the bees of the different sex in the nest cells and cases of mass sex discordance have been studied on the basis of the analysis of the composition of 2 492 nests of 9 megachilid-bees species. The deviations and discordances have been revealed in all species under study. The deviations and discordances occur with varying frequency depending on nesting conditions and individual masses of the females.

Construction of the Nests in the Bee, Osmia Dimidiata (Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Megachilidae) Discovered in Trap - Nests in Crimea
The construction of nests in the wild bee, Osmia dimidiata Morawitz, 1870 has been studied, notably: shape and placement of the partitions, shape of the pollen-loaf, construction of the cocoon, sex ratio and distribution of females and males in the nests. The majority of the nests had been taken from trap-nests made from reed stems (Phragmites australis). Females occupy the inner cavities of the stems with diameter 411 mm and length 530 cm. The majority of the cells are placed in the nest cavity as single ones or arranged in the short rows separated from each other by the empty spaces galleries of 18 cm length. Each cell have own bottom in the form of massive hemispherical partition and own lid as the form of thin flat partition and not have own lateral walls. Females make the cell partitions from mass of masticated leaves. The first bottom and the final plug of the nest have the structure similar with the structure of the cell bottoms but with some more weight. The shape of the pollen-loaf corresponds to the shape of the inner surface of the cell and fills the half of its volume. The egg is placed on the surface of the pollen-loaf in the place which has been good saturated by nectar. The length of the cells with females is half again as much as length of the cells with males. The mass of the cocoon with females are twice as much as mass of the cocoons with males. The cocoon has the medium strength and a peculiar construction of the apical part; the shape of its base part corresponds to the shape of the inner surface of the cell. The cells with the females are placed in the depth of the nest and the ones with the males closer to exit of from nest. Sex ratio varies very much from total female-biased to total male-biased in certain nests. More than half of the nests contain only males and the other ones only females or the both sexes. General sex ratio is male-biased (1+:2.5>). The main regularities in the nest structure of Osmia dimidiata are increasing the weight of partitions and decreasing the length of the cells and the weight of the cocoon with imagoes in the subsequent row of the nest cells.

Parasitofauna of Mound - Building Mouse and their Nests from Two Natural Foci of Tularemia in North - West Coast of the Black Sea
Mound-building mouse (Mus spicilegus Petenyi, 1882) is one of the main carrier of tularemia pathogen in natural foci of tularemia of the North-Western Black sea region. It is established that the distribution of the burial mounds mound-building mouse in natural habitats and on agrocenoses depends on the geography and climate of a particular season. Nest of mound-building mouse is formed in the center of the mound at a depth of 20-40 cm from the surface of the stern of the camera. In the nests and in mice revealed fleas 3 types: Ctenophthalmus orientalis, Wagner, Stenoponia tripectinata, Tir, and Ceratophyllus tesquorum, Wagner.

Comparative Analysis of Protein Polymorphism in Oak Green (Tortrix Viridana) and Pale (Aleimma Loeflingiana) Leaf Rollers
Eleven enzymes of two ecologically and evolutionary close species, oak green (Tortrix viridana L.) and pale (Aleimma loeflingiana Hub.) leaf rollers were studied in larvae and adults using disc-electrophoresis method. As it has been found, pale leaf roller is more specialized in respect to selection of host plan in comparison with oak green leaf roller. This is supported by the fact that pale leaf roller has fewer isozymes of those enzymes, which metabolize exogenic substrates and, accordingly has fewer loci, which determine them in comparison with oak green leaf roller. Besides, these loci in pale leaf roller are less polymorphous in comparison with its enzymes, unrelated with digestion.
