Conditionally we have divided his life into three periods: Zakarpattia (1929 - 1954), Kyiv (1955-2007) and Kremenets periods (2007-2015). Special attention was paid to the last years of his life and activities in Kremenets, as the head of the Department of Ecology and Plant Physiology at the Kremenets Regional Humanitarian and Pedagogical Institute named after Taras Shevchenko (today Academy). During this time he made a significant contribution to this institution. Under his leadership, the magistracy of the specialty Biology was opened, two Candidate's dissertations were protected (Halahan O.K., Mykhalyuk I.M.), all-Ukrainian conference with international participation "Besser Studies" was held in 2014. He established a research laboratory "Environmental monitoring and experimental biology" and launched the Plant Herbarium of Western Podillia.
