Aims of the course:
The aim of the subject is to get a general overview over the methods applied for complex studies of forest woody species, as well as in particular ecological studies focused at important questions in specified sites. We have in mind the measurements of flow of mass and water, energy and information between individual items of ecosystems, especially from the viewpoint of dominant forest tree species. This means flows associates with main living processes of woody species, which represent the background of their growth, resistance against pathogens and abilities to successfully survive and multiply under unfavorable and variable environmental conditions. Students should obtain theoretical knowledge and practical experience needed for application of modern, especially instrumental technologies in terrain conditions, data evaluation and their interpretation.
 
Course contents:
1.Scientific expresion of specialized problems (allowance 0/0)
2.Measurements of main functional tree structures and functions (allowance 0/0)
3.Measurements of energy and water flows in dominant plants (trees) in ecosystems (allowance 0/0)
