Course objective:
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 content:
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)

Course methods: The subject is focused at the direct practical applications in forest stands: Main functional tree structures. Spatial distribution of skeleton, foliage and roots, changes during ontogenesis and modifications by environmental conditions: mass, area, numbers, usual and extreme values, tissue water capacity, allometry. Tree water relations and energetics: terminology, flow in SPAC continuum, dynamic as dependent on environmental factors (precipitation, drought, hypoxia, temperature, electromagnetic environment), spatial variation, importance of interfaces, water consumption, stand water balance, impact on individual trees up to stands and landscape, impact of tree damage, stress reactions down to vitality decline. Optimization of tree and stand architecture (background for thinning) etc. Special features of tree ecophysiology under extreme conditions (drought, lack of aeration). Tree ecophysiology on geographic gradients, environmental limits. Field measurements of selected structures and functions at the level of trees and stands. Modeling of functions and structure of woody species. Practical applications in forestry, hydrology and other fields.
