Central Laboratory of Forest Ecology: Chemical and physical analysis of water, soil and foliar samples

Specialized laboratory for waters: Preparation of water samples and chemical and physicochemical water analysis

The Laboratory for forest ecology (LFE) is qualified as a specialized laboratory to perform required chemical and physical analyzes of different samples. Analytical methods in the LFE comply with applicable ISO standards and reference methods for implementation of forest ecosystems monitoring in the EU and are each year repeatedly verified through participation in international inter-laboratory comparisons (ALVA, ICP Forests program, National Institute of Chemistry).
