Department of Biology

The subject of scientific research within the field of biological sciences at the Faculty of Sciences and Mathematics focuses mostly on the issues of biodiversity and damaged ecosystems remediation. Research is being carried out on the diversity of flowering plants in northern Kosovo and Metohija, including the Rogozna, Kopaonik and Mokra Gora mountains, and the Šar Mountains in southern Kosovo and Metohija, as part of the Šar-Pind area of the Dinaric Mountains.

The diversity of this group of plants has not been sufficiently investigated in Rogozna, Mokra Gora and the part of Kopaonik in the territory of Kosovo and Metohia. There is also particular focus on endemic and endemo-relict species of the Šar Mountains. Extensive research is conducting in the area of the northeastern foothillsof the Šar Mountains.

Amphibians and reptilesare a frequent subject of research; being limited to their habitats and with limited ability to migrate, they are particularly sensitive to environmental changes. This is the fact for amphibians and reptiles of the Balkan Peninsula, which is a complex refugial center with a large number of taxa and high endemism that resulted in high rates of allopatric and parapatric species and a large number of hybrid zones. Aside from the aforementioned, integrative research is planned within the projects, both in the laboratory and innatural populations, for groups that have the model organisms characteristics.

Within the domain of evolutionary biology, the research is mainly aimed towards:

  1. the analysis of change in the size and shape of complex morphological units during ontogeny and the groups’evolutionary history;
  2. research into the evolution of life histories;
  3. studies of the phylogeographic structure of different evolutionary lines, species and complexes of species;
  4. analysis of the influence of ecogeographical factors on the distribution of taxa, phylogeographic lines and hybrid zones.

Within the field of conservation biology, the aim of the research is determinizing evolutionarily and conservationally significant units, population ecology studying that leads to conservation strategies data important for the indigenous natural populations and species....
