7M05108301 “Geobotany”

Geobotany - the science of the features of plant communities (phytocenoses) gradually turning into each other (replacing each other in time and space). It forms in undergraduates the concepts about plant communities, as the basis of vegetation and the most important parts of the biogeocenosis that determine the existence of all living organisms. Specialists in geobotany can analyze and describe plant communities, work at the herbarium level, on the basis of a comparative analysis, summarize and identify the causes - the effect relationships between plants and their environment.

  • Who can you be?

    Geobotanists work in scientific and research centers, laboratories. They engage in the development and coordination of environmental protection documents in the state organizations. They compile the necessary reports and documentation on environmental protection. Also, geobotanists work in forest areas and livestock farms, in nature reserves, parks, and can work in environmental organizations.
