Last Update

Address: Miera street 3, Salaspils, LV-2169, Latvia


Head: Dr.biol. Liene Auniņa

The Laboratory of Geobotany was established in 17th of April 2007 in order to form the reserach center of vegetation of Latvia. Research covers studies of the vegetation of Latvia both theorethic and applied, and its dynamics. One of the main tasks of the laboratory is to create the National Vegetation Database comprising phytosociological information on the vegetation of Latvia

Main research fields:

1.        the plant communities of  Latvia: diversity, ecology and geography;

2.        vegetation dynamics;

3.        development of national vegetation data base.
