Abstract:In article data on accumulation of heavy metals and radionuclides are provided in organisms of plants (mosses) and animals (vole) in the territories subject to intensive oil production, and also in control — on background sites within the Tyumen region. Radiation level increase in industrial areas of Western Siberia, connected as with extraction of radionuclides on a surface in these areas, and with their cross-border transfer from adjacent territories is shown. Pollution by heavy metals and radionuclides, together with increase of a radiation level represents additional risk for development of biological and ecological systems. Use of indicators on accumulation of heavy metals and radionuclides in organisms of plants and animals in regional environmental monitoring of the Tyumen region is recommended.
