The theoretical principles and basic conceptions of research of anthropogenic changes of landscape-geochemical conditions of a territory are considered. Landscape-geochemical conditions determine geochemical structure of anthropogenically changed landscapes and the characteristics of chemical elements migration. It is substantiated the conception of “geochemical urochishche” as an intermediate unit in the hierarchy of landscape-geochemical territorial units. Anthropogenic changes are considered as a factor of changes of geochemical parameters of landscape-geochemical systems. It is emphasized the importance of landscape-geochemical research for geoecological assessments of modern anthropogenically changed landscapes.
