Summary/Abstract: Ecology studies the relations of organisms and their environment. Ecosystem is established by mutual concurrence of organisms and environment. Global environmental problems point to our persisting unwillingness or inability to use ecosystems rationally with regard to their long-term functioning. Ecosystems have ability to soften negative effect of anthropogenous factors. Therefore, we can disturb and damage the ecosystems for certain time and cumulate alien substances in them. However, when the threshold value of ecological stability is crossed, degeneration or even devastation occurs. Deep ecology is the way of achieving accord and balance among individuals, communities and the whole nature.
