Face to face lecture #4:"Pond management and regional diversity decline"

The lecture will be held on 7th November 2019 from 15:00 to 16:30 at the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences of the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague (Kamýcká 129, 165 21 Praha 6 - Suchdol) in room L125. The lecture is free and will be in English.

Lecturer: Dr. Filip Harabiš

Pond is freshwater habitat with anthropogenic origin. The value of ponds in nature conservation is very high especially it is the most common type of stagnant waters in many regions including central Europe. However recently we face a global freshwater diversity decline. Ponds and pools are very well delineated in the landscape, being aquatic ‘islands’ in a terrestrial landscape and their condition reflects the real state of not only the aquatic but also the surrounding terrestrial habitats. Many taxonomic groups of freshwater organisms are primarily negatively affected by intensification of farming, which is associated with high fish stock and subsequent eutrophication. However, many features, including littoral vegetation, tend to correspond to wetlands. Ponds can thus function as ecological traps.

The lecture is carrying out within the project "Future Environmentalists - Linking EU Natural Capital Management to Field Research". The project is supported by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Commission, Key Action 2: Strategic Partnership by means of Activity Agreement № CSP 2018-1-BG01-KA203-047962.
