Overview of the Biology - Systematic Biology and Ecology study programme at the University of Hradec Králové  

The aim of practical activities in laboratories, as well as field survey and experience, is to extend students' knowledge and to turn theoretical knowledge to practical applications.

Research activities cover floristics and phytocenology, mapping and monitoring of vegetation, species protection, and conservation programs for critically endangered species. Within the scope of long-term cooperation with KRNAP (the Krkonoše Mountains National Park), research on the Krkonoše tundra have been carried out. Zoological research activity deals with, for example, ecology of the hymenopterous hymenopterans of aeolian sands and steppes, etology and nesting behaviour of birds, parasitism, and ethology behaviour of ants and others prey of bats.

Experimental biology is focused on research on the influence of abiotic stresses on growth and development of plants, the use of plants in phytoremediation technology, biological monitoring of moulds and mycotoxins, fish genomics and proteomics (determination of moulds and mycotoxins in food and the biomarkers of mycotoxins, metabolites of mycotoxins, in biological materials with the aim to minimize the impacts on public health and to implement risk management).

Career prospects

Graduates gain necessary knowledge in general biological disciplines, e.g. cellular and molecular biology, the anatomy and morphology of plants, general zoology, systematics and phylogenesis phylogeny of plants and animals, physiology and ecology of plants and animals, genetics and microbiology.

Graduates can find work in institutions that deal with environment and protection of nature conservation, in research and service laboratories specialized in biology and ecology, in cultural and educational institutions focused on ecological education, and in other scientific activities.
