Ecological and entomological observations of some key areas in the Norilsk industrial district, which are subject to technogenic impact of varying intensity, have been performed in the field seasons of 2008–2009. The composition and biodiversity of entomological complexes, as well as the activity of main indicator groups of arthropods, have been estimated depending on the distance from the sources of pollution. Flexible reactions of phyllophages to technogenic emissions have been observed. The necessity of monitoring of the impact zone’s marginal areas is emphasized.
