ecology of microorganisms, methods of monitoring with the use of
biotesting and bioindication; biotechnologies of microbe-plant systems.
The main scientific achievements: The laws of space-time organization
of microbial communities in acid soils of the region are stated, which
help to assess the contemporary state of microbial complexes, to
foresee the development of soils in conditions of anthropogenic impact
and in natural condition, to search and determine the microorganisms
cultures which are important from biotechnological point of view.
Biotechnologies contributing to increasing the yield and
stress-resistance of agricultural plants in conditions of acid soil are
New laws of microbial regulation of plants (crops, potato, broad-leaved
clover) yield and resistance to phytopathogenes and stresses are found
for the sake of managing microbial-plant systems functioning.
