CTPO : Contribution to programme outcomes, TOA :Type of assessment (1: written exam, 2: Oral exam, 3: Homework assignment, 4: Laboratory exercise/exam, 5: Seminar / presentation, 6: Term paper), PO : Learning Outcome

 
Contents of the Course
Actual and optimal structure concepts and examination of them from functional aspects, Ecosystem Based Functional Planning approach; explanation of concepts normal forest, regular forest, optimal forest and optimal structures; Analyzing and classification of various management methods from the aspect of suitability to different forest functions; determination of areas and optimal formation to be allocated to soil conservation; determination of areas and optimal formation to be allocated to hydrological function; determination of areas and optimal formation to be allocated to aesthetic function; determination of areas and optimal formation to be allocated to recration function; Determination the form of deviation from optimal based on forest form and management methods while comparing actual and optimal structures, Derivation of different alternatives while leading actual structure to optimal planning.
