[en]The elements of radiation ecology and ecological physiology have been applied to work out methodology of assessment of radiation effects and their standardization after radiation disasters. A notion of regional rate of the natural radiation background in different parts of the Earth is introduced. Inclusion of the values of radiation background, technologically intensified background, and medical radiation treatment through roentgenodiagnostic examinations to the value of basic and auxiliary limit of the yearly exposure is substantiated. Approaches to the creation of life maintenance systems in contaminated territories by minimizing dose exposures and rationally operating with their constituent parts, are suggested
