Course content
Collection of fungal organisms in the field (with a focus on macromycetes), subsequent processing of the material and determination on the basis of macroscopic and microscopic morphological characters using the determination literature.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Work with Text (with Book, Textbook), Demonstration, Training in job and motor Skils
Learning outcomes
Mycological field trip is aimed at collecting, processing of samples and identification of fungal species mainly with macroscopic fruiting bodies.
After completing the course the student should: - determine common species of fungal organisms by macro-and microscopic characters - collect and subsequently process the items in the laboratory - indicate presence and importance of macromycetes common in CR

Assessment methods and criteria
Written exam

100% Participation + practical knowledge of fungal species
