Abstract

The article describes the morphometric measurements of the adrenal cortex functional zones and analyzes the results of these measurements and the percentage correlation of the zones to the total adrenal cortex area. Besides, an analysis of the functional activity of the adrenal cortex zona fasciculate is presented. The research has shown that the highest tension of the adrenal gland function occurs in the animals inhabiting the north-west outskirts of Irkutsk (Novo-Lenino district). They have a thicker adrenal cortex zona fasciculate and reticular zone as well as a higher functional activity of the reticular zone in comparison to other study groups. This is probably indicative of an intensive production of glykocorticoid, androgens, and estrogens. On these grounds we can assume that this district is the most hazardous for the existence of living organisms which we believe to be a sign of unfavorable ecological conditions. The use of the muskrat as a bioindicator for the evaluation of the ecological conditions in different city districts and the Selenga River delta is unprecedented.
