Abstract : Instruction in botany has been given for a long time at the Military Medical Academy. For many years, the Academy had a special chair of botany, headed by such well-known scientists as G. F. Sobolevsiy, P. F. Goryaninov, A. S. Famintsyn, I. P. Porodin, V. N. Lyubimenko, and others. Prior to the Great October Revolution, instruction in botany and zoology was given during the first and second course. In addition, the Academy had for many years a chair of pharmacy and pharmacognosy (Petrov, 1816; 3orodin, 1898). In 1931, the chairs of botany and zoology were united in connection with the organization of a chair for general biology and parasitology, headed by Prof. Ye. N. Pavlovskiy. The latter undertook measures for preserving botany instruction, and also for perserving and utilizing the extensive herbarium and museum collections. This important work was conducted by the botanists A. N. Danilov and V. I. Polyanskiy1 assigned to the staff of the new chair (Pavlovskiy, 1940; Shpilenya, l942). During later years, botany instruction, as part of the course on general biology, was entrusted to the only botanist on the staff of the chair, formerly assigned to the chair of pharmacology, which replaced the former chair of pharmacy and pharmacognosy. All botanic materials were transferred to the chair of general biology.
