Title of the thesis:
Project and establishment of forest nursery on Socotra Island - transfer of European forestry know-how.
Diploma thesis is focused on establishment of forest nurseries and seedling production on Socotra Island where a natural regeneration of many endemic species is limited by overgrazing and has been moreover affected by cyclone that hit the island in 2015. Planting stock of Dracaena cinnabari, Boswellia elongata, Boswellia ameero, Boswellia dioscorides, Punica protopunica, Aloe perryi and mangrove Avicennia marina was planned to be propagated in nurseries located in three areas of interest – Firmihin, Homhil and Niyt. Therefore data about the species seed germination or growth rate were gathered and mentioned in the literature section. The species selection was always firstly preceded by dendrological survey of the area. Individual pilot areas were also described together with climatic data and moreover, soil samples were analysed as the substrate for the seedling production comes from local sources. Finally, the projects for forest nurseries establishment were created and according to them were individual nurseries established.
Key words:Avicennia marina, Dracaena cinnabari, Boswellia spp., forest nursery establishment, seedling production, Socotra
