General Information

Welcome to (PPGCFL) at Ufes

  • It encompasses studies aimed at determining the properties of wood and the effects of factors that interfere with the quality and use of wood. Determine the properties of composition sheets made from raw material. Study of traditional processes and development of new pulping and bleaching processes; Wood chemistry; Pollution control in the pulp and paper industries. Wood as a source of energy. Use of forest residues for energy production.

  • This line studies the initial processes of formation of forest stands through propagation by seeds and vegetative. Diagnoses and measures environmental measures to mitigate forest impacts, techniques for the recovery of degraded areas. Studies related to the diagnosis and design of agroforestry systems, Silvicultural systems of native and alien species. It covers the studies related to the correlations and nutrition of forest species, use, management and soil conservation being the basis for studies on silviculture of traditional and non traditional species, recovery of degraded areas, forest ecology, soil management and conservation, forest management, management River basins, among others. It also deals with diseases of forest species, pest management, control and prevention of forest fires.

  • This line encompasses studies in planted and natural forests in the area of dendrometry, measurement, optimization, forest growth, management, economics, harvesting, transportation, ergonomics and forestry planning. Determination of the optimal age of cut, optimal level of fertilization and spacing, economic and social analysis of forestry projects. Development of harvesting systems, optimization of the productivity of the system and reduction of the cost of transportation of wood. Technical and economic study aimed at rationalization and safety at work.

  • It is based on studies related to the conservation of natural resources in watersheds, especially water resources. It also covers floristic, phytosociology, phytophysiognomy of plant formations, being the basis for studies in forest ecology, recovery of degraded areas, forest meteorology and river basin management.

General Information
The Postgraduate Program in Forest Sciences is based at the Department of Forest and Wood, in the Center for Agrarian Sciences and Engineering, in the city of Jerônimo Monteiro, the southern campus of the Federal University of Espírito Santo. The program was established in 2007 and has awarded 182 master's and five doctoral degrees. It aims to:
● Promote the improvement of scientific and professional qualifications in forest and wood science;
● Prepare high-level specialized personnel to work in Forestry and related fields within the public and private sectors;
● Provide tertiary-level teacher training;
● Articulate research-related activities and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in order to expand the research groups/centers;
● Create a space for the sharing of ongoing research by hosting regional, national and international events (seminars, conferences, round tables etc.).

Postgraduate Degrees

M.Sc. in Forest Sciences
The main criterion for admission in the master's program is an undergraduate diploma in Agrarian Sciences or related fields. Exceptionally, students in the final semester of an undergraduate degree may enroll in the master's selection process on a conditional basis.

D.Sc. in Forest Sciences
The requirements for admission in the doctoral program are the master’s degree diploma and approval in the selection process.

Areas of Research
The Postgraduate Program in Forest Sciences covers four areas of research, one of which must be chosen upon admission:
1. Environment and Water Resources
2. Forest Management
3. Forest Products Technology
4. Silviculture

The program is based in Jerônimo Monteiro-ES, offering the course of Postgraduate Program in Forest Sciences since 2008 e the course of Postgraduate Program in Forest Sciences since 2013 and has an academic qualification profile certified by CAPES, receiving 4 on its last evaluation.

The program already has 217 masters and 23 doctors and counts with 78 students regularly enrolled, being 37 in the masters and 41 in the doctorate.
