Terrestrial Molluscs (Gastropoda) of Polesian Nature Reserve and Surrounding Territories (Northern Ukraine), their Conservation and Role as Bioindicators
In the Polesian Nature Reserve and its vicinities 39 species of the terrestrial molluscs were registered. Only 17 of them are occurred in the reserve itself and its protection zone. Most of the species, including rare ones, were collected to the south from reserve in the oak and alder forests of Slovechansko-Ovrutsky Ridge and in Pojaskovskij forest. There are no well-preserved oak and alder forests in Polesian Reserve, in this reason there are no rare forest molluscs species. In Pojaskovskij forest small reserve there is an almost virgin ancient oak forest in the similar abiotic conditions as two other studied oak forests in several kilometers. A comparing of molluscs species composition in these forests is show which species cant endure intensive forestry activity and can be used as bioindicators in central Polesie. On the some plots of Polesian Reserve decrease of molluscs species compostion seems to be related with bog reclamation and melioration in adjacent to reserve area. Problems of Polesian Reserve protection control and extension are discussed.

Stelis Aculeata – a Cleptoparasitic Bee Species New for the Fauna of Europe and New Findings of its Presumable Host, Hoplitis Princeps (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) in the Crimea
Stelis aculeata is reported from the Crimea as a new species for the fauna of Ukraine and Europe; 18 specimens of this bee species have been collected at the sand spit of Donuzlav Lake. Another rare bee species, Hoplitis princeps have been discovered (4 specimens) at the same habitat on the flowers of its forage plant Astragalus varius subsp. eupatoricus. Stelis aculeata is regarded as a presumable cleptoparasite of H. princeps. The importance of psammophytic communities for the conservation of bee and wasp fauna in the Crimea and particularly for such rare species as H. princeps and S. aculeata is discussed.

Fitness of the Parasitoid Phaeogenes Invisor Depends on Phenotype of Oak Leaf Roller and Genotype of its Fodder Plant
Body size and development rate variations in the parasitoids Phaeogenes invisor Thunb. (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) were studied in dependence on their intraspecies genetic heterogeneity as well as on genetic heterogeneities in their host insect (Tortrix viridana L.) and its fodder plant (Quercus pubescens Willd.). Application of ANOVA procedure allowed detecting those parts of the parasitoid body size and development rate variations, which are attribute to the interaction of factors parasitoid phene/leaf roller phene (up to 29%) and parasitoid phene/oak genotype (up to 13%). Thus, genetic information regulates ecosystem functioning and creates regular dynamics of whole system from the chaos of random interactions among individuals.
