Assessment methods:
- submission of a seminar work during the semester
- 3 written tests on the Latin names of species will be during the course. (3 x 25 pictures, maximum points for each test is 100, so maximal total receive points could be 300. To advance the practical knowledge of species is necessary to have at least 200 points . )
Credit - practical knowledge of tree species: determinated 80% species from each group
1. Broadleaves according to herbarium specimens (memorized all kinds of exercises)
2. Conifers - fresh branches (memorized all kinds of exercises)
List of species to particular parts of the credit is available in the Document Server UIS.
- final examination (length of about 20/15 minutes, written test (60% of the total mark) / oral 40% . A list of test circuits is available in the Document Server UIS
