Aims of the course:
Information about trees and shrubs as living organisms, creating communities. Historical development and current tree and shrubs species communities in the Czech Republic. Possibilities of tree and shrub species for artificial replacement and communities (planting in urban areas, the areas of air pollution, riparian vegetation, strengthening fences, anti-noise and anti-dust fences, windbreaks, planting land reclamation, land reclamation), and forests. Teaching the practical recognition of domestic species and introduced species using morphological or anatomical characters, etc.. Emphasis is placed on the major habitat types, rare and protected species and weeds and invasive introduced tree species.
