Abstract

The paper considers the main stages in the development of mycology at the Botany Department of Saint Petersburg State University from the beginning of XX century to the present day. The main areas of mycological research were formed by famous mycologists of our country. An important step was the creation of the Laboratory of Experimental Mycology. The studies were conducted in the field of taxonomy, ecology, biodiversity and physiology of fungi as well as plant pathology. It considers the most significant results of the university`s mycologists obtained at different periods of mycological science development. Currently, the scientists of Botany Department preserve the well-established traditions and develop new areas in mycological research. Among them geomycology takes a special place. This direction has been developed for almost 20 years. The paper deals with the fundamental scientific and practical advances in this field, discusses mycological promising developments based on comprehensive environmental studies, as well as their use in the educational process.
