Field practical work with the participation of foreign partners from Germany

Field trip to the steppe plot (Kostnay district) was carried out May 14, 2019 with the participation of foreign partners in the practical stage of the refresher course «Current trends at the assessment of global and local changes of natural ecosystems and the teaching of biological and geographical cycle disciplines».

Field practical work participants - Director of the Institute of Soil Science, University of Leibniz (Hannover, Germany), President of the German Soil Scientists Society, Professor Dr. Georg Guggenberger, Senior Researcher Shibistova Olga Borisovna (Leibniz Institute of Soil Science, Hannover, Germany), Professor, Doctor of Biological Sciences Bragina Tatyana Mikhailovna, Head of the SRC for Science and International Relations, Master of Biology Marina Aleksandrovna Bobrenko, students of the 2nd and 3rd courses of the specialties “Biology” and “Geography”.

Taking stock, conclusions were made about the fertility of the soil, its genesis, and the prospects for using this soil in agriculture were discussed.
