Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will gain knowledge about the composition, interrelationships, methods and classification of plant communities. They will learn to work in basic software environments used in the processing of phytosociological data (TURBOVEG, JUICE, R-project, CANOCO 5). Theoretical knowledge will be practiced and verified in field exercises.
