Affiliation: A. O. Kovalevsky Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas of RAS

Position, academic degree, rank: leading researcher, D. Sc.

Address: 2 Nakhimov ave., Sevastopol, 299011, Russian Federation



Research area:

functional morphology of biosynthetic phytosystems. One of the important aspects of the study is the issue of the occupancy of inhabited spaces with a bioorganic substance and the participation of the latter in the metabolism. This group of issues of general ecology and hydrobiology has an outlet in the practice of cultivation of marine algae and the construction of "biopositive" submarine structures.
