Basic Division: Department of Physiology of Plants and Microorganisms.
Brief Description of Research Activities
The range of the scientific problems within the programme is as follows: investigation of the soil diversity; working on the Red Data Book of the Perm Region Soils; investigation of the processes of soil transformation in urbanised, industrial and agrogenic landscapes; biodiagnostics and biotesting of soils; investigation of diversity, status and ecological functions of soil-like formations; optimisation of characteristics and functions of soils to grow highly qualified and safe bioproducts and agricultural products; formation and restoration of functions of soils and soil-like objects.
