Laboratory of Flora and Geobotany


The main research area is the diversity, structure, state and development of Lithuanian flora and vegetation. Scientific investigations are focused on:

  • syntaxonomic structure of Lithuanian vegetation, distribution of its components in ecosystems and in the territory of the country (‘Vegetation of Lithuania’ is being published);
  • narrowly delimited critical, stenotopic and stenochoric taxa of Lithuanian flora (a compendium ‘Flora of the Baltic Countries’);
  • natural and anthropogenic dynamics of Lithuanian vegetation (vegetation monitoring, protected species, territories valuable in botanical aspect, adventive flora);
  • Lithuanian botanical terminology;
  • maintenance and emendation of the Herbarium collections of the Institute of Botany (BILAS).
