Supervisor:
Department of Landscape Water Conservation
Synopsis:

The subject will introduce to students basic principles of landscape engineering and landscape conservation. Complex understanding of the topic, interrelations and synergies will be emphasized, rather than particular tasks of individual disciplines. There will be defined specific target area for individual student, or group of students (according to their specialization), where strong interaction between human activities and landscape occurred or is expected. The goal of the work (project) then will be understanding to relations, processes, effects and conditioning within given locality, possible effects on the landscape by planned or realized activity and possibly brief proposal of compensation or prevention measures or modification of original project. Students should ideally work within the team, search for interdisciplinary solutions, analyses, to apply multicriterial approach.

Requirements:

no prerequisites

Syllabus of lectures:

individually

Syllabus of tutorials:

no excercices

Study Objective:

The goal is understanding of potential application of own specialization in the field of landscape engineering, resp. to understand the principles how various human activities can influence landscape
