Biochemical premises of the determination level adaptation beside anseriformes on samples of antioxidant system in Wild Duck and Domestic Duck

Malko S.V., Lysenko V.I.

The unique ability of wild forms to quick adaptation wile accustoming themselves to diverse conditions of the environment does not have full biochemical basis at present.

On the biochemical level it is shown that the domestication brings to reduction of antioxidant status and adaptive possibilities in domestic forms in comparison with their wild forefathers .On this basis it is possible to suppose that species having low antioxidant status possess the lowered ecological valence and are found on stage of biological regress.
