Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
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.
