In the Botanical Garden, we have created several tablets on faunal themes, dedicated to the inhabitants of temporary reservoirs and insects of the forest. First-year students of biology and ecologists took part in their creation during the period of educational practice. During the internship, students not only study the local fauna, but also carry out research work, and one of the bottom is the preparation of material (illustrative and description) for the identified inhabitants. Thus, we instill in the children a scientific interest and practical application of knowledge.
The preparation takes several months, since it is necessary to identify a group of inhabitants for which, like everyone else, phenological changes are characteristic. That is, in June there are some species, and in July and August there are already others.
The creation of tablets will continue in the future. Currently, they are being trained for shell amoebae and some orders of insects.
We are grateful to the management of the Botanical Garden for their interest and warm welcome during the practice, –
