International Scientific Conference in Abkhazia

12.09.2016

The National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve took part in the international scientific conference “The Role of Botanical Gardens in Preservation and Monitoring of the Caucasus Biodiversity”, which took place in Sukhum (Abkhazia) on September 6–10.

The forum was joined by nearly 130 scientists from Australia, Great Britain, Hungary, Armenia, Belarus, Abkhazia, Ukraine and many regions of Russia. The conference was organized by the Sukhum Botanical Garden, which is 175 this year.

The conference was opened in the Cabinet of Ministers of the Abkhazian Republic. The audience was greeted by V.K.Zantariya, the Abkhazian President’s Adviser on Science, Culture and Education, Z.D.Dzhapua, President of the Abkhazian Academy of Sciences, E.Sh.Gubaz, Director of the Institute of Botany, and T.Y.Turchin, Deputy Director of the National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve, who was a member of the organizing committee to head one of the conference sections.

The conference discussed the topical issues of biodiversity preservation, climate change and its influence on the flora, plant introductions and settlement gardening, and of various areas of botany.

The scientific report of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov about the principal areas of the Museum work was very interesting for the colleagues. The members of the conference learned about the unique forest “Friendship of Peoples” laid on hilly sands with participation of E.Sh.Gubaz, Director of the Institute of Botany, and schoolchildren from Abkhazia.

After the work in sections the conference members toured about the botanical garden, the arboretum and the Ritsa Relict National Park.

During the conference the members exchanged their experience and outlined the plans of further cooperation.
