The next PhD student course on “Monitoring and environmental assessment” will start in March. The objective of the course is to provide the students with a basic understanding of environmental assessments and how to design programs for monitoring forest damage, the incidence of damaging agents and the risk of damage.

The course combines theoretical lectures, practical demonstrations of monitoring and students will critically evaluate the monitoring methods they use in their respective projects.

The course starts with an introduction to the topic online followed by a weekly, digital lectures and literature discussion, providing the students with knowledge on basic concepts and their application to monitoring in management. During the on-site week, lectures on monitoring and sampling theory will be combined with lectures on specific methods. Theory will be combined with sampling exercises in the field and students will evaluate methods applied in their own doctoral projects.
