Emphasis is placed on the collection and analysis of dendrometric quantities by terrestrial and remote sensing methods, modelling of forest growth and dynamics, the influence of habitat and climatic conditions and subsequent solution of theoretical and practical problems of forest management. The field of study is a complex synthesis of modern methods of data collection, use of decision support systems, mathematical modelling and growth simulators and methods of evaluation of the influence of harmful factors on forest production and management. The graduate can expect to work in the academic sphere and research institutions, as a manager in forestry and landscape management, as a specialist in state and municipal forest administration or companies engaged in the collection and management of spatial data on forests and landscape. Furthermore, the graduate can work for international organizations as an expert in the FAO, EU, IMF, etc.
The graduate of the PhD course in Forest Management is able to apply broad theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the field of forest property management with regard to various natural, economic and legislative conditions. They are able to methodically manage and perform forest inventories as well as detailed biometric, geostatistical and spatial analyses of data obtained by methods of remote sensing and terrestrial surveying. Based on these data (using decision support systems), the graduate can also decide on the optimal choice of management at various spatial-temporal scales of the forest ecosystem. The synthesis of elements of forest management with applied geoinformatics technology creates the basic precondition for the practical application of the concept of precision forestry. It is an approach with a number of multidisciplinary overlaps developing both classical and remote methods of research into forest condition, mathematical-statistical processing of biometric data and differentiated adaptable forest management, taking socio-economic conditions into account.
