Project Title: Creation and development of multidisciplinary team on the basis of landscape Ecology (CZ.1.07/2.3.00/20.0004)
Key words: team of landscape ecology - multidisciplinarity - academic researches - specialists - the Czech Republic
State funding provider: Education for Competitiveness Operational Programme (co-financed from the European Social Fund),
Principal investigator: Mendelova univerzita v Brně,
Project period: 1. 3. 2011 – 28. 2. 2014.
After the dissolution of the Institute of Landscape Ecology, ASCR, there was no longer a body in the Czech Republic which could promote the subject as a scientific discipline, train new researchers in the field and work on practical applications. The aim of this project is to enable academic researchers and Ph.D. students working in landscape ecology to co-operate with the other partners in the scheme - specialists in particular elements of the landscape (forest, meadow, pasture and arable land) and ecological matters - to create a new multi-disciplinary team. This project will link three key disciplines, or activities, which are interested in landscape ecology from differents point of view. Each is represented by a leading personality in their field, who will participate as instructors, with a key role played by the co-ordinating scientist, Prof. Fanta. The team, once established, will be able to present its results to both international and local audiences.
