The presented work substantiates the importance of mycological assessment of the current ecological situation in the liberated territories of Azerbaijan and its implementation due to changes caused by both the occupation factor and global problems on the planet.  The assessment of a specific biotope would be incomplete without studying the fungi that are actively involved in all the ecological functions that occur in nature. Therefore, the implementation of research in accordance with the priority areas of the world is important both from a scientific and practical point of view and will allow the realization of the probability of achieving interesting results.
