Prospects of graduates

Career prospects

The graduates obtain knowledge and practical skills in the sphere of vegetation classification within various classification systems (forestry typology, geobotanical system, biotopes), assessment of the condition and changes to the species composition and the structure of forest ecosystem vegetation in the context of various ecological factors determining the character of forest communities, also in the sphere of monitoring and observing the species composition of forest ecosystems.
