Cytogenetic homeostasis in natural populations under natural conditions and anthropogenic stress was estimated according to the frequency of chromosome aberrations in somatic cells for six species of small mammals. Cytogenetic homeostasis was disturbed under the stress effect of increased density during population cycles, at the ecological periphery, and in the case of environmental chemical and radiation contamination. Cytogenetic homeostasis disturbances were related to changes in other indices of homeostasis, such as developmental stability and immune status, suggesting the use of the cytogenetic approach for estimating the general state of individuals in natural populations.
