Scientific Activity

Research issues:

Microscopic parasitic fungi of vascular plants: species richness and diversity, biology, taxonomy, ecology, spread of fungi (invasive fungi), participation and role in the structure of plant communities, dynamics of the occurrence of fungi against the background of phenological plant development.



The Department has one of the largest herbariums in Poland, with the acronym LBL, quoted in the global Index Herbariorum database. It is the only professional herbarium in Eastern Poland.
The herbarium includes collections representing plants and fungi. The botanical herbarium (plants, mosses, liverworts, algae) has over 300,000 herbarium sheets, documenting the presence of about 2,000 species. The mycological-lichenological herbarium has about 100,000 sheets, including over 3,000 species of fungi and lichens. Complementary materials for the collection are soil, rock, fossil samples, etc.

Some herbarium sections (e.g. lichenology and bryology) are an important base (in Poland and in the world) in terms of taxonomy (over 200 nomenclatorial types). The collections are made available to specialists from Poland and abroad for the purpose of conducting scientific research, mainly taxonomic and physiographic revisions. Herbarium collections are also used in the didactic process and in activities popularizing science.
