The world of plants, in spite of the massive interest in it of scientists from around the world, remains largely unknown. The task of the modern scientist is to find a variety of keys to the knowledge of the plant language. A scientist who possesses various mathematical methods and chooses a plant organism or a system of plants at different hierarchical levels of nature’s organization to be studied is of particular value to the scientific community. Not often original methodological approaches developed and tested on various natural objects are accepted by the scientific community as a working tool for conducting scientific research. Previously, this was possible only in scientific schools, where several generations of scientists used the original methodological approach of their leader. Times have changed. Scientists from around the world have become closer and the original tools for conducting scientific research can be brought to the mind of any scientist, and it does not matter to which scientific school he is attached. Also, any scientist has the right to choose from the proposed methodological approaches that which can increase the efficiency of the process of conducting a specific study. The purpose of the special issue of the journal is to present to the scientific community a range of original methodological approaches for solving problems of botany and plant ecology. This will contribute to the review of a variety of methodological approaches. In addition, this will contribute to the fact that "unrecognized scientists" will be able to convey their ideas to the scientific community and replenish the base of ideas, on the basis of which new scientific concepts can be built.
