Ph.D.Forest Biology

Czech University of Life Sciences Prague - Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences

The Forest Biology as a PhD degree offers the possibility of further education to graduates of all Master’s degree programmes of the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences and to graduates of other related biology-oriented branches of study. The Forest Biology study programme for PhD students is focused on the broad issues of biology-oriented scientific disciplines in the context of the research of forest ecosystems and their ecosystem functions. Depending on their specialisation, graduates of the Forest Biology PhD study programme focus on biology-oriented research within the various functions of the forest ecosystem, whether it focuses on sustainable production of wood biomass or on the issue of non-productive ecosystem functions, such as the protection of biological diversity in forests.

Graduate profile

Graduates will receive a comprehensive overview of the issues being studied and other relations within the ecosystem functions of the forest. They can use the acquired knowledge after graduation in their future career not only in scientific, but also in operation-oriented institutions in the Czech Republic and abroad. During the studies an emphasis is put on detailed knowledge of the new trends in the biology-oriented forestry scientific disciplines pertaining, for example, to population genetics, breeding of forest tree species or forest ecology or population dynamics of invertebrates or selected vertebrates. Besides passing of specialised exams, independent scientific work finalised by publishing of acquired and evaluated knowledge in international scientific journals is also a prerequisite for a successful course of study.
