Vegetation Science Group

Department of Botany and Zoology | Faculty of Science | Masaryk University

The main topics of current research include:

  • macroecological patterns in plant communities and local floras, large-scale gradients of diversity and their relationships to local and regional ecological processes
  • development of new methods of data sampling and analysis for vegetation science and community ecology and their software implementations
  • critical revision of the national vegetation classification for the Czech Republic
  • international cooperation in vegetation survey and vegetation databanking (especially with countries of central and southern Europe and Taiwan)
  • diversity of Siberian ecosystems and its relationships to diversity of Full Glacial and Early Holocene ecosystems of northern Eurasia
  • invasibility of plant communities and large areas by alien species

In 2008 we organized the 17th International Workshop European Vegetation Survey: conference website
