Summary

The subject is intended for doctoral students having knowledge of ecology, who are concerned with issues of vegetation in individual types of landscapes. Special emphasis is put on subtypes of industrial landscape. The subject is focused on Zurich-Montpellier classification of plant communities with ecological factors, multidimensional analysis of plant data and environmental data. It deals with vegetation phenomena with regard to geomorphology, geology and microclimate of landscape with special attention paid to the industrial landscape. It is concerned with the structure of vegetation and landscape over a greater spatial scale, landscape heterogeneity, changes in the distribution of chosen plants and plant communities with reference to environmental factors. The subject includes applications, i.e. the use of vegetation maps and other vegetation data in landscape planning, landscape restoration, nature protection in relation to ecological regeneration and bioindication.
