Research Activities

The main directions of scientific research of the Department:
• In collaboration with researchers of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Plant Physiology of the Research Institute of Biology, the scientists of Department develop methods of early diagnosis and means of overcoming the negative impact of a set of anthropogenic factors on plant organisms; study of the influence of technogenic pollution on the biological mechanisms of different plant species using molecular genetic markers; creation of ecological and physiological concept of functioning of different types of plants under conditions of combined influence of stress factors of different nature; developing a system for the safe use of herbicides in crops.

• Currently research on s/b №0119U100103 "Ecological and physiological aspects of selecting an assortment of plants to the conditions of the Steppe Dnieper region" and s/b theme №1-642-19 "Designing N, O, S-containing heterocycles with involvement new catalytic systems. Experimental and theoretical research" is currently underway.

• Significant place in the scientific research of the teachers of the Department is the study of introduced plants, physiological and biochemical mechanisms of adaptive reactions to the complex effect of ecoclimatic and anthropogenic factors in the conditions of the steppe zone of Ukraine, increasing the stability of plants in adverse environmental conditions. The Department supervises the botanical garden of DNU.

•In this aspect the scope of scientific interests of the Department covers theoretical and applied issues of introduction of ornamental shrubs and flowering plants and lawns, their introduction into green construction, research of ecology, physiology and biochemistry of introductions, intraspecific variability, plant development, regenerative capacity and generative reproduction of plants.

• The results of research are being tested at scientific conferences, including foreign ones, in particular recently:
2ND International Conference „Smart Bio“ (03-05 May 2018), Kaunas, Lithuania; 3RD International Conference „Smart Bio“ (02-04 May 2019), Kaunas, Lithuania; «Joint ESENIAS and DIAS Scientific Conference and 9th ESENIAS Workshop Species, ecosystems and areas of conservation concern under threat from the invasive alien species» (03–06 September 2019, Ohrid, Republic of North Macedonia); IV International Scientific and Practical Conference «Scientific Achievements of Modern Society» (04-06 December 2019), Liverpool, Great Britаin.

• Scientific developments of the employees of the Department in the field of theory and practice of modern park-building, landscaping organization and greening of urban territories find practical implementation in cooperation with the administration and administration of City and regional self-government.

• Teachers of the Department take an active part in public activity – popularization of scientific knowledge and dissemination of scientific approaches in the issues of creation and reconstruction of green spaces on the territory of the City, with which they have repeatedly acted in the media; as experts participate in public hearings on these issues, in particular when discussing the reconstruction of the park area and the square near the monument to TG Shevchenko on Monastyrsky Island (Prof. Zaitseva I.O). Associate Professor Kabar A.M. is a member of the Public Steering Committee of the Commission on the Determination of the State of Green Area to be Removed in Dnipro City.
