Department of Biology

In recent years the Department of Biology of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (University of Maribor) experienced great progress. The number of employed biologists has doubled and various new laboratories were opened. The department is divided into six chairs: Chair of Geobotany, Chair of Zoology, Chair of Molecular Biology, Chair of Animal Physiology and Ethology, Chair of Ecology and Chair of Didactics of Biology.

Professors and other members of the Department of Biology are included in local and international projects and cooperate with national and foreign scientific and professional institutions. The research work covers topics of botany, zoology, plant and animal physiology, ecology, molecular biology and didactics of biology. Regarding pedagogical and research work the laboratories and biological collections are well equipped.

Also students participate in the research work. During their study, students have various options to attend organised field works, scientific excursions in Slovenia and abroad, research camps and the student exchange programs.
