Institute for Applied Plant Biology
The Institute of Plant Biology and Biotechnology is a research organization in the field of plant biotechnology the Institute is located in Almaty city and neighboring the Kazakh National State University by al-Farabi and the Main Botanical Garden of Kazakhstan. The Institute of Plant Biology and Biotechnology works in close collaboration with agricultural breeding stations, Botanical Gardens and National Parks across the country. Their task is to improve crop breeding programmers based on new agro biotechnologies, study of Kazakhstan's flora, including the preservation of rare endemic species, and protection of environment via phytoremediation

The Institute for Applied Plant Biology (IAP) is a private research institute which belongs to Prof. Dr. Walter FlÃ¼ckiger, Dr. Heidi FlÃ¼ckiger and Dr. Sabine Braun. The institute has been founded in the year 1980. It mainly deals with research about forest and urban trees.
Forests play a major role they have been keen observing from the year of 1980 forest observation not only includes studies on tree health but also on deposition, composition of the ground vegetation, soil, soil water and soil fauna.
â¢ Ground vegetation
â¢ Nitrogen deposition
â¢ Crown transparency
â¢ Soil compaction
â¢ Soil acidification
