The course provides basic knowledge of the environment and basic connections in the environment. The course characterizes the most important abiotic and biotic components and the relationships between them. A significant part of the course deals with the human condition and its role in the global ecosystem. Anthropogenic impacts are primarily described by current global problems, including ways to address them at the local level, as well as with environmental policy or direct cooperation between economy and ecology.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Podholová Eva Ing. Ph.D. (14.08.2013)

Students will be able to:

perform an overview of the interconnection of abiotic and biotic components,

perform an overview of the complexity of ecosystems and relationships between them,

evaluate foundations for the most delicate and at the same objective problem solving in environmental protection.
