Aims of the course:
The aim of the subject is to get practically applied information about present knowledge on processes and structures, which can be presently measured on the levels of biological organization important for forestry (i.e., whole trees and forest stands or watersheds). To understand causal relationships between structures and functions in main systems of woody species and to interpret them from the viewpoint of operative architecture, vitality and functional stability of trees under normal and extreme conditions.
 
Course contents:
1.Special questions of tree ecophysiology (allowance 0/0)
2.Water relations and tree structure (allowance 0/0)
3.Converting water to energy; application to remote sensing (allowance 0/0)
