Indicator indicators for predicting negative changes in the hydroecosystems of the Azov-Black Sea region

Which priority area of ​​science and technology corresponds to: rational environmental management

Research: applied.

Future prospect: completed.

Research level: no analogues in Ukraine.

Patent: no.

What additional actions require further research: It is planned to use the research results in the development of a strategy for the management of water bodies and key biological groups of the Azov-Black Sea region. The direction of this topic requires further funding, taking into account the need to develop and implement management plans for water bodies operating under conditions of significant anthropogenic pressures and climate change. The conducted studies will make it possible to develop a strategy for managing these water bodies and key biological groups that are in the zone of the greatest environmental risk. It is also important that the results of these works can become a methodological basis for organizing monitoring of the state of the marine areas of Ukraine.

Brief description, advantages, further prospects for application.

The dynamic indicators of individual components of the hydroecosystem make it possible to assess not only the state of the groups themselves, but also the conditions (ecological state) of the aquatic environment in which they develop. Their use in monitoring hydroecosystems makes it possible to monitor long-term changes in aquatic ecosystems. The ongoing research is of great scientific and practical importance, taking into account the possibility of establishing indicator indicators of the state of the main components of hydroecosystems under the conditions of climate change. The information obtained will be implemented in the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine and local governments of Odessa, Mykolaiv, Kherson, Zaporozhye regions in order to reduce negative changes in hydroecosystems.
