In the modern world, the main problem for all states is the rational use of natural resources. This is due to the lack of almost all types of resources: mineral, energy, biological, soil, water, territorial. Almost all conflicts in the modern world, including the military, are due to the desire to control certain resources. In addition to the lack of resources, a huge problem is a rational use of available resources, their protection, economy, efficient and multiple uses based on compliance with the laws of nature on the circulation of substances in the biosphere, which has no waste.
Irrational use of natural resources is primarily associated with low efficiency of their use, which leads to the depletion of their reserves, as well as to the accumulation of large amounts of toxic waste in the process of their production, processing and use, which poses a threat to the existence of the environment and humanity itself. In this regard, the development of environmental knowledge, environmental management and environmental protection is of great importance worldwide. Ecology is one of those sciences that bring together in one system the data obtained by different sciences and is designed to reflect the real relationship between the diverse phenomena of the real world. In modern ecology, the range of issues to be discussed requires the involvement of knowledge of biology, chemistry, geography, geology, soil science, physics, mathematics, geoinformation technologies and other sciences. At the same time, the profession requires knowledge of the interaction between the various components of environmental systems and integration with the social environment of the economy and environmental management practices. This is important for the successful implementation of the concept of environmental management for sustainable development of society.
