Bachelor's, master's, postgraduate and postdoc topis offered (a leaflet to download):

  • Restoration of grasslands on former arable land

    Effect of time from sowing, effect of surrounding vegetation (infiltration of species not sown from surrounding vegetation), quantification of success of sown species, etc.
    Supervisor: K. Prach (prach@prf.jcu.cz), consultant: I. Jongepierová

  • Vegetation succession on abandoned fields

    Successional changes, effect of surrounding vegetation on the course of succession on particular field, manipulation with succession towards a desired target (experimental sowing, removal of certain species, etc.).
    Supervisor: K. Prach (prach@prf.jcu.cz)

  • Spontaneous restoration of wetlands on arable land

    Supervisor: K. Prach (prach@prf.jcu.cz)

  • Succession in sites disturbed by mining activities

    Various sites disturbed by mining activities can be found throughout the Czech Republic (e.g. quarrie, spoil heaps, sand pits, peatlands) where the course of succession could be reconstructed. Such research has also applicable outputs that could be used in reclamation and restoration ecology in general.
