Abstract: 

Quantified assessment of the natural resource potential component (ERP), which characterizes the intraspecific and interspecific ratios (proportions) of mineral, water, land, forests, fauna, natural recreational resources in Ukraine regions peculiarity (uniqueness) level has been given. Peculiarity of the PRP component structure in the natural regions is reflected by the level of disparity index. The basis for the each region peculiarity level determination are indicators of the PRP component structure in Ukraine as a whole. Evaluation performed by taxa of physic-geographical zoning of Ukraine – 278 natural areas, 57 regions, 14 localities, 3 sub-areas, 4 zones, 3 countries.

Key words: 
nature-resource potential, component structure, natural (physic-geographical) regions of Ukraine
