In this connection, it is necessary to make various variants of an estimation of possible consequences, for decrease or neutralization of negative influence on ecological indicators. The urgency of work consists in formation of the uniform universal approach to decrease or neutralization of the processes worsening ecological characteristics of the zones subject to change of land use. This article outlines the main approaches to assessing the effects of urbanization on different levels of ecosystems, based on global experience. The aim of the work is the analysis and structuring of evaluation approaches related to the urban-ecological changes. Methods, in this article, are approaches to the assessment of ecosystem services, analysis of monitoring indicators of urbanized areas, features of mapping of land use change zones (GIS), social factor. The urgency of work consists in formation of the uniform universal approach to decrease or neutralization of the processes worsening ecological characteristics of the zones subject to change of land us
