Summary

The data of complex examinations of morphophysiological state of wild rodents, the lipid peroxidation processes and the energy exchange in their organs, the cytogenetic analysis of marrow cells and the process of multiplication in populations inhabiting areas with increased natural radiation and in 30-km zone of the Chernobyl NPS. The data obtained support the existence of qualitative differences of wild rodents subpopulations inhabiting control and radioactive nuclide contaminating areas. They allow to suppose that the process of adaptation to chronic low intensity radiation effect of wild rodents in natural conditions involves the transition of the lipid peroxidation and another regulatory systems to different level of function and is directed on population survival and homeostasis maintenance in changing radioecological conditions.
