At our department a broad research is conducted, mainly focused on green biology. This is not a precise term, but includes biology related to ecology, environment and plant sciences, which are words found in our department's name. The department has five adjacent doctoral subjects: Ecotoxicology, Marine Ecology, Plant Ecology, Plant Physiology and Plant Systematics. These doctoral subjects partially overlap and meet within six current research areas: plant sciences, ecology, evolution, the sea, climate effects and environment.
