Professor Danijela Stešević, Ph.D. from the Faculty of Science and Mathematics of the University of Montenegro (UCG) stood out as one of the key figures in the field of scientific research during the past year at the University of Montenegro.
This was announced by the UCG, and it was announced that the results of her work were rewarded with the annual award of the UCG, which was awarded to her by the rector prof. Dr. Vladimir Božović.
"This award is a recognition for the contribution to the development of the scientific community and the international recognition of the University. Her continuous work on floristic and vegetation research resulted in the publication of papers in prestigious journals such as Horticulturae, Plant Biosystems and Phytocoenologia. Her contribution to the research of endemic species such as Ramonda serbica (community synecology) and Micromeria croatica (morphometry and molecular characterization), thereby enriching the understanding of the biodiversity of our ecosystems," the UCG press release points out.
The UCG said that Stešević also contributed to the building of national scientific resources and the systematization and documentation of the richness of our country's flora through her work on the Vascular Flora Catalogs of Montenegro and the National Vegetation Database of Montenegro.
"Through her mentoring work with master's and doctoral students, as well as with young researchers, Professor Stešević continuously inspires and encourages new generations of scientists. Her dedication to teaching and mentoring ensures continuity in the development of the scientific research community of Montenegro," said the UCG.
The institution said that Stešević also leads bilateral projects with Slovenia in the field of didactics (researching the added value of the implementation of new information and communication technologies in education), in cooperation with the University of Maribor, as well as vegetation ecology (ruderal vegetation of Montenegro), in cooperation with the Biological Institute Jovan Hadži ZRC-SAZU from Ljubljana.
"This further strengthened the international cooperation and recognition of the University of Montenegro. Her contributions have been recognized multiple times both at the national and international level, which is the result of her dedication to excellence in all aspects of scientific work," the UCG statement concludes.
