 On October 4, 2018, students of my curator group BB17-08K visited the Botanical Garden. They got acquainted with the main expositions of the botsad: “Japanese Garden”, “Greenhouse of tropical and subtropical plants”, “Dendrology of North and South America”. Students showed great curiosity, demonstrated their knowledge of the general course of botany. As a teacher, the department of biodiversity and bioresources has strengthened my opinion about the good preparation of our students. During the summer training practice, students who are deprived of the opportunity (for medical reasons) to go to the field can expand their knowledge of the biodiversity of the plant world on the basis of the Almaty Botanical Garden.
