Basic scientific achievements On the basis of materials of numerous scientific expeditions type formation process in the Caucasus, flora genesis, the lichen flora of Azerbaijan was clearly confirmed with scientific proofs. It was given a botanical description of 15 new species of lichens that are unknown to science for the first time, and they were included into a world of flora. It has been identified a number of new species for Azerbaijani flora, more than 300 types as well as the former Soviet Union (5 species), Caucasian (98 species).

He carried out analysis of 300 species collected from different geographical zones of the country and achieved to obtain new qualitative medicines such as ksanton, antroxinon, emodin, chloremodin. The importance of raw materials for the medical and biological research, medical-biological perspective, the estimated reserves of the country and area of distribution of the species were specified. These data are used for obtaining and production of new medicines.

It was determined that the lichen, which is related to various environmental groups mainly came to Azerbaijan

In the 3rd and 4th periods with a wave of migration: the northern arctic, northern boreal, Font Asia and the Mediterranean.

He calculated the reserve of the species having perfumery and biological importance in the country.
