GeoBio research team focuses on natural processes at the landscape level, with emphasis on the human impact on these processes. The aim of the research activities is to verify the basic hypothesis of the landscape ecology and biogeography by using remotely sensed data, historical and present maps or cadastral data and other sources of spatial information. The basic and applied research is focused on following topics:

  • Monitoring and Modelling of the impact of land cover changes on landscape functions
  • Assessment of the relationship between geodiversity and biodiversity at landscape level
  • Landscape classification and typology
  • Dynamics of land cover in extreme conditions (alpine timberline, post-mining areas)
  • Long-term evolution of selected characteristics of soils and vegetation in relation to the human impact
  • Dendrochronology
