Abstract

According to many intenstigations, oil pollution cause difficult changes of structure and function of natural ecosystems, as well as violation of metabolic processes, production and destruction of organic matter, and consequently leads to a decrease in species diversity. Studies show that planktonic animals are quite sensitive to oil pollution of sea water, which accelerates their death in the concentration of 0.01 mg·dm-3.
