(The homepage is under continuous construction!)

With the aid of the illustrative material of the present homepage our aim is to increase the knowledge of our students first of all in the fields of botany, mycology, nature conservation and environmental protection. Under the heading 'Plant families and their species occurring in Hungary' among others those species are demonstrated, the recognition of which is obligatory for our students. The list will be continuously enlarged. We also plan to demonstrate the most important morphological characteristics that can be used for the identification of the species and prepare a presentation of the plant species protected in Hungary. In the 'Environmental protection and landscape management' part the most important problems of these scientific fields will be illustrated with practical examples. Our current illustrative material contains pictures and descriptions of plant species as well as material concerning some important environmental issues.
