Aims of the course:
Students should obtain knowledge of woody species and their properties that are important for garden design and landscape architecture. Emphasis is put above all on growth, outward, ecological and production parameters and on resulting possibilities of use. They should be also able to evaluate the present situation and developmental tendencies of individual plants, groups and stands of woody plants with regard to needs of gardening and landscape architecture.

1.Introduction (allowance 1/0)
a.Definition of the subject
b.History of the subject
c.Importance to landscape architecture
d.Literature and additional sources of information

2.History of woody species on Earth (allowance 1/0)
3.Woody species important for landscape design (allowance 2/28)
a.taxonomy and nomenclature

4.Selected morphological and anatomical characteristics - their practical significance (allowance 14/0)
a.Classification of woody species by the nature of above-ground part
b.Stem (primary and secondary structure, differentiation and branching, metamorphosis)
c.Architecture of above-ground parts of woody species
f.Flower and fruit
g.Root (primary and secondary structure, differentiation and branching, metamorphosis, the architecture of root systems, the symbiosis with microorganisms)

5.Selected aspects of the woody species physiology - their practical significance (allowance 5/0)
a.Selected issues of growth and development strategy of woody species
b.Defensive and protective mechanisms in the stem and root of the secondary structure

6.Woody species vitality (allowance 5/0)

Assessment methods:
Credit -- conditions for the granting:
(1) Ability to determine the specific woody species by living twigs. Two written tests (mid-term and at the end of the semester), it is necessary to identify five out of five test samples; one error in specific epithet is tolerated when properly repaired and when two extra samples are properly identified. For each formal error in writing woody species names one extra sample is to be properly identified.
(2) Ability to determine the specific woody species by whole living plants. Oral exam takes place at the end of the semester; it is necessary to identify ten out of ten test samples; one error in specific epithet is tolerated when properly repaired.
(3) Knowledge of the important characteristics of specific woody species. Written test takes place at the end of the semester. It is necessary to score at least 15 points out of 20 possible points.
(4) Knowledge of issues discussed in the lectures. Two written tests (mid-term and at the end of the semester). It is necessary to score at least 7 points of 10 possible points in each test.

Participation at seminars is obligatory, at lectures recommended.
