Article
Full-text available
Knowledge of landscape dynamics, functions and ecosystem services is key for evidence-based management of protected areas. These areas represent valuable landscapes, where the ability to provide functions and services should be preserved. The article introduces results of a research focused on landscape development in the Krkonoše National Park and...
Article
Full-text available
The landscape dynamics, changes of its quality and structure are crucial for understanding past, present and future possibilities and trends in studied ecosystems. The objective of this article is to show partial results of a long-term project, which is focused on analysing landscape dynamics in protected areas in Czechia (National parks-NP, Protec...
Article
Ash dieback, caused by the ascomycete fungus Hymenoscyphus fraxineus, has been rapidly expanding across Europe during the last two decades, posing a considerable threat to native ash populations. In this study, we applied regression-based models trained by field data, in conjunction with geographic information systems, to produce spatial prediction...

Here we determine the distribution, numbers and habitat preferences of two of the largest species in the family Cervidae present in the Czech Republic, red deer and Eurasian elk. Red deer occurs predominantly in vast areas of forest, i.e. mainly in the mountains bordering this country and several large forest units in the interior. The range of thi...
Article
Phytophthora alni is an invasive organism that causes root and collar rot in alders, which significantly damages the forest and riparian vegetation of alder trees in Central and Western Europe. In the Czech Republic, this pathogen was first confirmed in 2001, and since then it has been gradually spreading from the west to the east. Here, we applied...

We studied ground vegetation dynamics during the decline and recovery of mountain Norway spruce forests damaged by SO2 air pollution and associated stress factors. Changes in areal extent of the ground vegetation dominants, moss layer and spruce litter and trajectories of these changes, recorded at a spatial resolution of 5 ¥ 5 cm, were analysed in...
Article
1. Saproxylic beetles are a key group when assessing forest biodiversity, and biologists have been trying to explore their ecological requirements. 2. We studied Cucujus cinnaberinus in its recent stronghold (i.e. Czech Republic, Central Europe). 3. Our analyses using a generalised linear model (GLZ) revealed that sufficient sun exposure was the mo...
Article
More complex models of forest ecosystems are required to understand how land-cover changes can impact vegetation dynamics and spatial pattern. In order to document spatio-temporal modelling abilities, the observations conducted in the declined climax mountain Norway spruce forest during the recovery period (1995–2006) are used for simulation and sp...
Article
Full-text available
1. Cucujus haematodes is a rare obligate saproxylic beetle with Eurasian distribution range. 2. The species has suffered a sharp decline in the European part of its distribution range, which can be attributed to the loss of forest habitats with a continuous supply of dead wood. 3. We found that this species is largely distributed in the Primorskiy...
Article
Innovative techniques, properly used, can offer exciting opportunities for the advancement of ecology. In case of geographic information systems (GISs), ecologists have a powerful and rapidly growing set of methods and tools with which to solve fundamental problems of a theoretical and applied nature. Previous analytical methods used in these subdi...
Article
A catastrophic windstorm called “bora” occurred in The Tatra National Park in Slovakia in 2004 and destroyed an extensive area of mountain spruce forests. Part of the windthrow area was left uncleared for natural development, but most of the area was cleared. We analyzed natural regeneration in cleared and uncleared windthrows, and in reference clo...

Cucujus cinnaberinus (Scopoli, 1763) is a saproxylic beetle listed in the IUCN Red List and the European Habitats Direc- tive. Although the species is highly protected and often red-listed little is known about its ecological requirements and status of its populations. Therefore, our main aims were to review its current and historical distributions...
Article
Our study focuses on the ground vegetation dynamics and its dependence on microsite conditions in declined climax mountain Norway spruce forests during the recovery period (1995–2006) following upon the considerable decrease of SO2 pollution. We showed that ground vegetation development shifted from prevailing mosses and vegetation-free sites cover...
Article
Full-text available
Spatial modelling focused on the integration of relationships into statistical analysis and numeric modelling is demonstrated in the framework of three environmental case studies. Each study is represented by specific environmental methodology and results that take advantage of GIS methods implemented in ArcGIS developed by Environmental Systems Re...
