Subject syllabus:

Field environmental practice is focused on practical experiences, ecological research methods and evaluating the results. Field works are organized in different types of landscapes and ecosystems, which is divided into individual tasks to each of the students. The practice is carried out by sub-field work under the guidance of teachers in locations around the field station Zubrnice, or selected by the Moravian-Silesian region, where data collection are performed in the field and their subsequent evaluation.
