In December of 2017, the Department was renamed the Department of Applied Zoology, to reflect the development of its new research directions, in which basic research is associated with applied research, such as biodiversity research for conservation planning and conservation of biological resources, biological control of harmful organisms, control of alien invasive species, etc.
