Intensive industrial development causes transformational processes in ecosystems. Only 0.3–3.0% of natural systems areas remained undamaged under industrial technologies influence in the Ukrainian industrial regions disturbed systems (Bulakhov, 2000). Simple and quick methods of contamination level determination are needed to launch wide scale activities aimed at the disturbed ecosystems restoration and environment normalization. A lot of analytical methods are used to determine these levels, but all of them are complex and require expensive equipment. The higher vertebrates which are super sensitive to the metallurgical, mining and chemical emissions can be used as well.
