The Department of Integrated Forest and Landscape Protection provides education in the units focused mainly on the fields of integrated forest protection, phytopathology and forest protection, study of harmful agents, tree sanitation and conservation, harmful agents in urban environment and tree work health and safety, forestry entomology, apiculture, plant physiology, ecophysiology and stress physiology of plants, pathophysiology of wood species, forest withering and preventive measures, resistance potential and forest stability, nature and landscape conservation,
landscape maintenance, landscape ecology and disturbance ecology and practical mycology. The scientific and research activities of the department are aimed at sustainable management and stability of forest ecosystems, landscape and plantations of fast-growing wood species; management of protected areas and forest health in changed ecological conditions, as well as at the issues of disturbance ecology. Furthermore, the issues of urban vegetation and of health assessment of wood species from the ecophysiological aspect and tree work health and safety are tackled.
At the beginning of the academic year 1991/1990, when the landscape part moved to the newly established Faculty of Ecology and Environmental Sciences, the focus of the department moved to scientific disciplines that were needed or could be used in rational forest management and provided for the ecological stability of forests. A specific example of such disciplines is the Forestry Entomology explaining the relationships among animals in the forest ecosystems. The unit Forest Protection focuses on learning about the resistance potential of the forest, mainly on explaining the basic causal relationships
between activation of harmful agents and forest damage. The research and scientific activity of the Department is oriented towards the issue of activation of harmful agents and population dynamics of insect. The beginning of the academic year 2016/2017 was associated with the change inevitably emerging from the orientation of the earlier Department of Forest Protection and Wildlife Management. Two independent departments with specialised profiles were created – the Department of Integrated Forest and Landscape Protection and the Department of Applied Zoology and Wildlife Management.
