The spectrum of viewpoints includes floristics, systematics, evolution, adaptation and autecology, plant communities, relationships between habitat-differentiation and plant cover, biogeography, human impact on plant cover, and issues of species, habitat and landscape conservation. Basic botanical knowledge is expected). It is recommended to participate simultaneously to the course (lecture series) "Flora and Vegetation of Central Europe", which offers the theoretical aspects for the excursion series.
