S.F.Kotov, assistant professor,
candidate of biological sciences
It was established in May 2000 as the result of reorganisation of the
Faculty of Natural Sciences. The origins of the Faculty, however, reach back to
the establishment of Tavricheskiy University, when a section of natural sciences
was created as part of the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics with a prominent
botanist Professor N.I.Kuznetsov as the first Dean of this Faculty. Its development
is closely connected with the names of the following world-famous biologists:
Academicians V.I.Palladin, A.P.Sushkin, Professors E.V.Wolf, V.V.Lunkevich, Ye.A.Meyer,
S.I.Metalnikov, G.F.Morozov, I.I.Puzanov and others. A great contribution to the
development of the Faculty was made by scholars and pedagogues V.M.Borovskiy,
N.A.Troitskiy, S.L.Delamure, M.S.Shalyt, A.N.Kiselev.
The faculty consists of 49 persons, including
11 Doctors and 29 Candidates.
Issues related to ecology and
flora/fauna protection; modem neurophysiology and magnetobiology; study of blood

and morphogenesis of plants; development of modem biotechnological techniques
