Pharmacognosy in its research programme comes out of natural materials (drugs, fresh plants, vegetable and animal products), tests and isolates their active substances, determines their structure, studies the mechanics of their production and their significance in the context of living nature. It also studies anatomical and morphological evaluation of practically significant drugs.Department of botany and pharmacoergasis studies the effects of the exogenetic factors on medicinal plants.
