Specialization of the Department

Fundamental and applied hydroecology, marine and freshwater biology, ichthyology, ecology, protection and sustainable use of biological resources of natural ecosystems.

Main directions of scientific activity

  • Complex hydrobiological research of northwestern part of the Black Sea and adjacent waters (study of benthic ichthyofauna, macrozoobenthos, zoo- and phytoplankton, phytobenthos);
  • Research in population ecology and population dynamics of wild animals;
  • Improvement of methods of differentiation of intraspecific communities of wild animals;
  • Research of productivity and biotic balance of coastal ecosystems;
  • Development of mathematical models to assess the abundance and biomass of individual species of plants and animals in aquatic ecosystems;
  • Research in the conservation of biological diversity of natural ecosystems;
  • Development of technological bases of breeding, keeping and guarding of rare species.
  • Aquaculture and behavior of fish.

Professor B. G. Aleksandrov is actively involved in international cooperation, he is head of Consulting Council in biological diversity in the Secretariat of the Commission on protection of the Black Sea against pollution, as well as Odessa department of International Union Eco-Etika. He is member of Ukrainian Commission of International program UNESCO “Man and biosphere”; coordinational council of transboundary biosphere reserve UNESCO “Danube Delta” (Romania-Ukraine); Joint commission on implementation of the Agreement on creation of “Zone of nature conservation territory of the Danube delta and Prut River” (Romania, Ukraine, Moldova). Is a partner in international projects: Improving Environmental Monitoring in the Black Sea – EMBLAS; Towards COast to COast NETworks of marine protected areas from the shore to the high and deep sea, coupled with sea-based wind energy potential – COCONET; Research and REstoration of the Essential Filters of the Sea – REEFS”.
 
Graduates of the Department gain knowledge of basic and applied hydrobiology, ichthyology, ecology, conservation and sustainable use of biological resources of natural ecosystems. Students study marine and freshwater biology; biology and ecology of various groups of aquatic pelagic and benthic organisms, methods of populational genetics of aquatic organisms, basis of aquaculture and aquariumistics, aquatic toxicology, phycology, etc. Students get acquainted with the methods of quantitative assessment of biological diversity; obtain theoretical knowledge and practical skills for using mathematical algorithms of calculation of biological resources of natural ecosystems; study basic methods of classic hydrobiology research and approaches to conservation of biodiversity of the Black Sea.
 
Among the graduates of Hydrobiology and General Ecology there are employees of Institute of Marine Biology NAS of Ukraine, the Odessa center of Southern Research Institute of Marine Fisheries and Oceanography of the State Agency for Fisheries of Ukraine; staff of reserves, national parks, zoos and other scientific institutions; different structure laboratory of the Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Health.
