Welcome to my personal pages
At present I'm working at the Institute of Botany, Department of invasion
ecology. My research activities cover population biology and ecology of invasive species with
application of GIS and modeling approach. I'm interested in studies focused on plant dispersal and
species dynamics at larger scale.
At present I'm a principal coordinator of project Naturalization of garden plants as a result of interplay
of species traits, propagule pressure and residence time. In the past I was coordinating project
Invasion by Heracleum mantegazzianum: the role of
time and spatial scales or project ALIEN (SCIEX). I also participate in data management
of alien species databases (projects ALARM, DAISIE, COST TD1209). My favourite species are Heracleum
mantegazzianum (Giant hogweed), knotweeds
(Fallopia/Reynoutria) and Impatiens. In the past years I teached a
(S-plus) at Faculty of Science, Charles University (materials for course).
