Hello! We are happy to welcome you to the new website of the University of Tartu. As it is still fresh new, problems may occur. We will fix them as soon as possible. Please use the feedback form to give feedback and let us know of any issues. Thank you!
Our department studies ecology and systematics of plants at several organisational levels – from photosynthetic apparatus to global vegetation patterns. Molecular methods have found their way into all branches of biology. Our department attempts to be at the cutting edge – utilisation of novel molecular techniques has become the rule rather than exception. At the same time, we have not forgotten classical botany and ecology – we still respect our plants and fungi and teach our students to be able to identify them from sight.About the Department
