Biography, scientific achievements

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 worked out. 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. Publications: over 300 works, including 5 monographs (with co-authors).
