History of the Faculty

wydz1 The history of the Faculty of Biology is almost as long as that of the University of Warsaw, despite the fact that at the inception of the Royal University of Warsaw in 1816, none of the names its five Faculties referred to “Biology”. The natural sciences taught at the Faculty of Philosophical Skills were Geology, Zoology, Botany and Anthropology. The Botanical Garden was opened in 1817, in the Łazienki park under the tutelage of the pioneer in plant anatomy and morphology, Prof. Michał Szubert (1787-1860).
