The results of our research have been presented at the SER conference held in Reykjavik, Iceland this week. Klára Řehounková talked about the restoration of psammophytic grasslands and Anna Müllerová turned attention on spontaneous succession in aquatic and wetland habitats. Karel Prach presented general trends concerning vegetation establishment in various disturbed sites across Europe. Two more external members of our restoration group, Ivana Jongepirová and Ondřej Mudrák demonstrated another restoration topics focused on species traits and also practical aspects in the implementation of using regional seed mixture. We also visited some restoration projects in the field during the mid-conference excursion.
