In this article are included some author\'s works and dedications in the field of quasiequilibrium hierarchical thermodynamics of quasiclosed systems of our real world. The hierarchical thermodynamics is a general approximate theory which may be applied to any systems that are characterized by the functions of states. The hierarchical thermodynamics is a linear kinetic thermodynamics of near to equilibrium systems in which variations in the functions of state over time occur. The hierarchical thermodynamics was created on the 19th century foundation of the exact physicochemical theories of J.W.Gibbs. Hierarchical thermodynamics is a further development of Gibbsian theory and to within a known approximation is applied to systems of all temporal (structural) hierarchies of real world. Especial interest is the application of hier archical thermodynamics to living systems which, as before believed, could not be investigated by Gibbsian methods. The reason of this was the statement that natural biological systems are opened and that these systems are, allegedly, far from an equilibrium state. However, recently, the law of temporal hierarchies was formulated. This law substantiates the possibility of identifying, or discerning, quasi-closed monohierarchical systems or subsystems within open polyhierarchical biological systems. It was also established, as a rule, that the processes of evolution in living natural systems are quasi-equilibrium processes. The author of this article substantiates the view that hierarchical thermodynamics is a necessary key theory for all branches of science.
