The article presents the results of testing of the improved methodology of assessing losses caused by the damages of natural biotopes and their components. The basic parameters of the proposed methodology are biomass and productivity of ecosystem components, expressed in energy terms, taking into account the recovery time of ecosystems. These parameters balance the assessment of loss of stable (with high biomass) and dynamic (high productivity) ecosystem types. We propose to apply such methodology to assess losses for damages of natural biotopes in protected areas.
