The Department of Ecology was established on November 21, 2012 at the Faculty of Biology of Ivan Franko National University of Lviv. Among the scientific topics of the department are monitoring and multilevel bioindication assessment of the ecological condition of urbanized and man-made transformed territories and waters of Western Ukraine. Employees of the department study biodiversity (phyto-, myco-, zoodiversity) and its anthropogenic changes, biota distribution in natural and urban ecosystems of Western Ukraine, problems of conservation of natural complexes, study the ecological status of water bodies in different levels of anthropogenic load Lviv, their floristic and faunal component, as well as bioindication characteristics of certain species of biota, analyze the ecological and biochemical characteristics of aquatic plant species; study the effect of metals, pesticides and natural toxins (aflatoxin B1) on metabolism in biota cells; study the reactions of plants to the action of oil in the soil and the possibility of their effective use in phytoremediation technologies.

The Department of Ecology was created on the November 21, 2012 at the Faculty of Biology of Ivan Franko National University of Lviv on the basis of the decree of the Academic Council of the University (Order of the Rector № 0_117 dated November 5, 2012).

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.

  • anthropogenic changes of flora and fauna on the area of natural and urbanized ecosystems;
  • the distribution peculiarities of biota invasive species;
  • hydroecological analysis of the water reservoirs;
  • an efficiency of usage of different plant species in the phytoremediation  technologies on oil-polluted soils;
  • an influence of the metals, pesticides and natural toxins (aflatoxin B1) on the cells of the biota;
  • changes of biota in high mountainous  areas of the Ukrainian Carpathians  because  of the climate changes.
