Institute of Ecology
The basic research at the Institute of Ecology concentrates on the study of the structural-functional organisation of terrestrial ecosystems and their responses to changing environmental conditions. As a practical result, the data obtained in basic research is used to prognosticate the development of ecosystems, landscapes, communities and physiological changes in plants connected with natural processes, climate changes and human activities.
Research Associates from the Institute are largely engaged in the teaching process in different universities as well as in supervising PhD and MSc degree students.
