Invasions versus reserves

The spatial protection of nature is a well-known way of protecting nature as a whole. But what is the role of reserves in the age of climate change and the impacts of invasive species? That was the question for an international group of scientists together with Petr Pyšek from the Department of Ecology of our Faculty.

Popular Science: Climate change and migration – case study from small islands – more complicated than we thought

Maldives are islands in the Indian Ocean, where the impacts of climate change are already obvious. The islands lie just a few meters above sea level and face an increasing ocean surface, coastal erosion, change in the monsoon pattern and related rain. How do local inhabitants react to these changes? It was an objective for an international team of scientists, which was led by Robert Stojanov, a former member of the Department of Social Geography and Regional Development of our faculty. Robert Stojanov currently works at the Migration Policy Centre in the European University Institute in Florence, Italy.

Popular Science: Otters vs Anglers: Do they catch fish of the same species and sizes?

The stocking of fish from hatcheries into streams is a common practice in the fisheries industry. It supports the native fish population and recreational anglers have more fish to catch. When the Eurasian otter, one of the most significant predators of freshwater fish, is present in the stream, however, conflicts between anglers and ecologists occur. The anglers object that the otters catch their purposefully stocked fish and leave only little for them. Is that really the case, though?

Popular Science: Light as a driver of the shape variety of Norway spruce needles

How do spruce needles react with their shape to the intensity of incident light? Is there a difference in the volume of irradiation of the individual needles in spruce twigs? Is the size of the needles and the shape of the cross section by the needles dependent on their orientation on the shoots? Does irradiation have a greater impact on needle shape than CO2? These questions have been examined, led by prof. Jana Albrechtová, the doctoral student Zuzana Kubínová from the Department of Experimental Plant Biology of the Faculty of Science, in cooperation with colleagues from the Institute of Physiology, the Institute for Global Change Research and the Botanical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
