Main area of activity of the structural unit: Study radioecological situation in the Republic; Study the changes descending in living organisms under the effect of radioecological factors in the environment.

Main scientific achievements of the structural unit: The exposure dose rate and the geographical coordinates of the measurement stations in certain areas of Azerbaijan Republic have been determined. The dominant plant species have been established for biomonitoring of the radioactive-contaminated areas with high radiation background in Absheron Peninsula and the changes descending in these plant species under the effect of radioactive pollution have been studied by different methods. In consequence, the changes in plant genome and the damages in an electron transport chain at the light stage of photosynthesis under radiation effect have been studied. New paramagnetic centers have been first detected in different plant species and the effect of radioactive pollution on them has been studied by EPR method.
