Department of Geobotany

The main study object of the Department of Geobotany is the vegetation of the Carpathian and Pannonian regions and other parts of Europe. We study the structure, development, and history of plant communities; we focus on their classification, dynamics, ecological characteristics and invasion by non-native species with special interest to Carpathian and Pannonian region. We have both botanists and zoologists in our team. Viewing the study objects in the light of several branches of knowledge enables us to study habitats more comprehensively.

Our research activities are focused on the following topics:

• Vegetation ecology

1) Diversity and ecology of grasslands
2) Vegetation ecology of forest ecosystems
3) Arctic and alpine vegetation and its dynamics
4) Ecological restoration of habitats
5) Vegetation classification

• Ecosystem synanthropization

• Remote vegetation survey

• Biodiversity and ecology of aquatic ecosystems

1) Aquatic ecosystems diversity
2) Ecology of aquatic organisms and their communities
3) Genetic structure of the populations of aquatic species
4) Sustainable management of endangered species (applied research)
