On distance of 500 m to the South-West from Tripolska TPS the raised content in soils of mobile forms Pb, Cd, Cr, Ni and Co was revealed that considerably (3–5 times) exceeds levels for territory of Kaniv natural reserve. Increase of the concentration of dienic conjugates (3–7 times) and malonic dialdehyde (2–4 times) in liver of individuals of the yellow-necked mouse of under pollution by heavy metals has been discovered. Seasonal dynamics of the maintenance of lipid peroxidation has been revealed. The registered changes of biochemical indicators testify about presence ecological-biochemical stress in an organism of the yellow-necked mouse in the district of influence of Tripolska TPS.

Keywords: heavy metals, lipid peroxidation
