Geometrical forms of biostructures, abiological analogues and the role of the physical vacuum in morphogenesis
The key role of confocal structures of liquid crystals in biology is short considered. Experimentally found out unexpected property of one of variants of such structures has allowed to create a method of their preparation for tunnel microscopy. The useful permission of 0,5 nanometers that allows to visualise separate molecules of keratin is reached. Keratin plates of an armour of a turtle appear natural model of one of variants of a structure of keratin molecules, at similarity of the geometrical form distinction of the sizes reaches 50 million times, and distinction of volumes and weights in the order of size coincides with number of Avogadro. For biostructures with difficult form their geometrical similarity at such distinction of the sizes can speak only participation in morphogenesis effects of physical vacuum with own geometrical structure as a quasicrystal. Only such physical vacuum as the structured environment not the chemical nature, can provide fundamental property live – relative stability of the geometrical form supermolecular biostructures at active dynamics of molecular processes.
Keywords: quasicrystals, tunnel microscope, physical vacuum.

Wound covering "Litoplast" and treatment of thermal skin burns from the positions of experimental lymphology
Experiments on laboratory animals have shown that the use of wound coverings «Litoplast» (based on natural zeolites and semi-permeable membrane) in the treatment burn wounds 3A extent has protective effect on the structural organization of the initial parts of the lymphatic system, skin, improves its drainage function, helps to reduce endogenous intoxication in post-burn period, provides rapid recovery of functions of effector cells of inflammation, creating favorable conditions for the development of regenerative processes in the skin, as well as maintaining the structure and functions of the remote location of the burn bodies such as the liver and brain, thereby most weight of post-burn complications.
Keywords: zeolites, burns, skin cells, treatment.

Geological nature of kudyurs in the volcanic mountains on the example of Vanchinskaya depression in the Sikhote-Alin
On the basis of results of geological mineralogical researches within the limits of Vanchinskаyа downwarping (one of typical early Cenozoic rift structures for territory of Eastern Sikhote-Alin) characterizes the geological composition and features of argillaceous zeolitic rocks which numerous outcrops are actively used in the given area by wild animals as a mineral-nutrition component with formation around of grass crop of characteristic landscape complexes – kuduyrs. On the basis of comparison of geological and biological information, which collected earlier, the conclusion is done that the most of Eastern Sikhote-Alin kuduyrs be closely connected with palaeocene-eocene bimodal volcanism areas, exposed in rift downwarping and characterized by similar mineral and chemical kuduyrs composition used by animals.
Keywords: lithophagy, kudyurs, geology, geochemistry, zеolites, volcanic glasses.

About causes and effects of lithophagy instinct
In the results of long-term researches of the litophagy phenomena amount herbivorous animals (the Sikhote-Alin area) and on the base of the literature analysis of biological and biomedical features of natural minerals which animals used the follow conclusion was drawn. The numerous cases of litophagia could be explained from the position instinct aspiration of organisms by using some natural minerals to correct his material composition and the functions of his systems which can be disconnected undergoing some unfavorable stress factors. The possibility of such correction is related to equal features of some hypergenic minerals in the sense of regulation of biological, physiological and energetic processes in organisms. Ecological effects following from the lithophagian instinct conception was shown by way of illustration of Sikhote-Alin landscape.
Keywords: lithophagy, geophagy, solt lick, kudurs, kudurits, adaptation, stress factors.

Zeolitits of Primorye Region: genesis and mineralogical-geochemical characteristics
The geologic position of the main manifestations zeolitites development zones of early cainozoic volcanism in the Primorsky region. We establish a restriction to the two volcanic complexes: Bogopolskii in East Sikhote-Alin and Kraskinsky in Southwest Primorye. Characterized by their mineral composition and geochemical conditions of formation.
Keywords: zeolitites, volcanism, East Sikhote-Alin.

Evolution of the flora and changes the environment in the Late Mesozoic in the territory of East Asia
The Cretaceous period in the Earth history was marked by manifestation such phenomenon of macroevolution, as the rise of higher taxa – the flowerig plants. The attainment of a angiosperm level was a protracted process of accumulation of features, in which the diverse groups of gymnosperm plants took part. The synchroneity of events of appearance of angiospermous plants in geologic record is evidence of polycentrism, i.e. the presence of several large centers of parallel development of flowering plants. One of an important centers – the East Asian one – is considered.
Keywords: сretaceous flora, fossilis, evolution.

Results of geological and biological research of cirative mud of Peter the Great Bay
The article presents the results of the study of sulphide deposits of curative mud in the coastal area of south-western coast of the Gulf of Peter the Great. It is shown that there is a correlation power mud deposits with an abundance and diversity in their composition of diatoms, with sulfurcontaining minerals pyrite and jarosite are authigenic. The study samples for microprobe and electron microscope has reason to believe biogenic pyrite.
Keywords: medicinal mud, diatoms, pyrite, jarosite.
