Research

The scientific topics of the department are monitoring and multilevel bioindicative assessment of ecological state of urbanized and technogenically transformed territories and water areas of Western Ukraine.

The employees of the department study biodiversity (phyto-, myco-, and zoodiversity) and its anthropogenic changes, biota distribution under the conditions of natural and urbanized ecosystems of Western Ukraine, the problems of preservation of natural complexes, they investigate an ecological state of water objects  on the territories with different level of anthropogenic press of Lviv region, study their floristic and faunistic components  as well as bioindicative characteristics of certain biota species, analyze an ecological and biochemical features of aquatic plant species; study an influence of metals, pesticides and natural toxins (aflatoxin B1) on metabolism of biota cells; investigate the reactions of plants to the impact of oil in the soil and the possibility of their effective usage in phytoremediation technologies.
