This course is focused on introduction to methods used in vegetation survey: sampling of forest and non-forest vegetation, measuring and estimating habitat environmental conditions and vegetation mapping. Course is composed from three equally important parts: theoretical part, field survey and lab analysis.
Students will learn theoretical background of field vegetation survey, apply it in practice, collect real data in the field, process them in the lab and discuss the results.
The course consists of three parts:
|Attending the class (theory, field trips & lab)||55%|
|Homework assignments (2-3 per semester)||20%|
|Activity in the class (group and individual work)||25%|
Note that you need to attend all whole-day excursions, unless you have serious reason why you can't (e.g. healthy issues). I also strongly suggest that you attend all theoretical parts and labs. During the semester there will be 3-4 homework assignments and number of group and individual tasks.
