Flora of Altai, Southern Siberia, Mongolia and adjacent territories. Geobotany and resource science”, “Plant ecology and phytoindication.”

“The conference takes place every year, it brings together scientists from different parts of the country and neighboring countries to Barnaul. This is a very important platform for the exchange of developments and research findings. Specialists meet, share their experience, contacts, many working groups have been created within the framework of the conference, which have been operating for a long time. This is a great practical significance of the conference. The event is held entirely online for the first time. Last year, we held two face-to-face conferences at once, the latter took place not so long ago, in the fall. About 80 participants came to us,” said Alena Shibanova, a researcher at the South Siberian Botanical Garden, the executive secretary of the conference.
