Within the disciplines mentioned above, it is possible to specialize intensively in the anatomy or morphology of seedlings, plantlings and grown trees, their organs and phenology, ecophysiology, synecology, production ecology etc. This will involve integration with other disciplines such as forestry geobiocenology and typology, forest preservation, economic modification of forest, remote sensing of the Earth, forestry economics etc. The aim of this course is to prepare and educate graduates for forestry science or specialist roles, or for academic activities.
Students of the PhD study programme in Silviculture shall be able to analyse the possibilities for the use of natural processes or the application of effective artificial procedures to achieve poly-functional or specific gain from forest ecosystems, as well as from woody non-forest stands. Mastering the biotechnical principles of this discipline for forest cultivation is the basis for fulfilling the theoretical and practical content of the main aim of forest cultivation – to ensure all production and non-production functions of the forest, but also of the woody vegetation in the landscape. Within the PhD course, great emphasis is put on current issues within forestry and forest cultivation (selection of woody species, natural regeneration, growth of woody species etc.) linked with ecosystem services, primarily considering global climate change and the anthropogenous influence of stand conditions leading to changes in approach to forest cultivation.
