Description of project
The project deals with: I. production potential of European larch in admixture and its increment; II. ecological demands and ways how to use natural regeneration of European larch in a wide range of light conditions (from a clear cuts con. to con. beneath a shelter); III. microclimatic function of European larch as a pioneer species with respect to a growth of climax tree species (growing beneath a shelter of European larch young plantations); IV. paleo-botanical research of the postglacial development of the forest species compositions with a focus on the detection of presence of European larch in the Czech Republic; V. analysis of the oldest historical notes about European larch in historical literary sources; VI. molecular analysis of the origin of European larch populations in the Czech Republic; VII. interaction of European larch with valuable plant species and communities.
