The herbarium of THE Department of biology of the Sarsen Amanzholov EKSU is one of the oldest in our country. It contains about 11 thousand herbarium sheets of plants from various parts of our country and near and far abroad.
Herbarium office has one of the most representative collections of plants in the East Kazakhstan region. It contains valuable historic collections of the Altai Botanical garden, Institute of botany, Academy of Sciences of RK. Of particular value are historical collections related to the activities of scientists and botanists of the Department of biology.
The herbarium of the Department of biology is the base of scientific work of many botanists, not only of the University, but also of the CIS countries. It is widely used for teaching students specializing in botany. A special feature of herbarium collections is their accessibility to researchers from all countries. Any sample in any herbarium of the world after entering the main Fund can be requested for study (with reference, including to other countries) by any scientific institution of the world.
The funds of active herbariums always contain materials from other herbariums, and their own materials are partly temporarily located in other institutions. This practice ensures the integrity of botany as a science.
International, national and regional reference books are created to guide researchers.
Index Herbariorum - is an international database that provides a detailed list of Herbariums of the world, contains information about employees of Botanical institutions.
Our herbarium Fund is registered in the International inventory of plant flora of the world Index Herbariorum, having received the acronym UKSPI.
At the moment, we have a task to re-register and get a new acronym, which would allow us to work with herbarium funds around the world in the future.
All those who want to work with herbarium collections of the Department of biology of S. Amanzholov EKSU,we are waiting in building 4 (Revolutionary, 2A), room 18.
