Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): -
Expertise offered To carry out the research the chair of botany and mycology is provided with a well-qualified research staff – one doctor of biology (specializing in botany) and six associate professors (specializing in botany and ecology). The research workers of the chair have been doing research in different fields of botany lately. The main directions of their studies are: 1) plant cover of the Middle Don basin, 2) anthropogenic transformation of the plant cover of the Middle Don basin, 3) arrangement of protection and rational use of phyto – resources of the region. In the result of the research done, a huge amount of data on eco- floristic complexes of the regional native ecosystems, rare and endemic plant species have been collected. A promising network of specially protected nature sites have been worked out on the basis of which an ecological system is supposed to be created.
Scientific keywords flora Eco-floristic complexes Protection and rational use of the plant cover Ecological network, specially protected natural territories/ sites Anthropogenic transformation of the plant cover
