The department of biology at the college of education for pure and applied sciences (Ibn Al-Haytham) has organized a symposium entitled (The cultural diversity and traditional knowledge in the Iraqi environment: the marshes of southern Iraq) chaired by Dr. Maha Abdul Nabi and Assist. Prof. Ameen Abood.

The two lecturers aimed to shed light on the most important aspects of culture and traditional knowledge in the environment of the marshes located in the governorates of Basra, Maysan and Dhi Qar in southern Iraq. They studied the diversity of manufactures common in such areas, namely guest houses, traditional household appliances whose main resources depend on raw materials available there such as reeds, papyrus as well as pottery and food industries based on raising animals that commonly live in marsh lands.
