Summary: The aim of the project is to map the significance of old (including extinct important) trees in relation to settlement in the pilot area and to propose the use of stable solitary greenery for landscape protection. The common denominator of the biology-focused academic institutes is biodiversity linked to such habitats. Mapping of old trees, including mapping of lichens that are tied to them, was carried out at several sites in the Třeboň Protected Landscape Area. The Institute of Ethnology of the CAS focused on ethnological documentation of old and monumental trees and ALS in the landscape of the Czech Republic, as well as on the preparation of popularization and professional outputs, especially a brochure on the issue of ALS, and the Institute of Botany of the CAS on traditional forms of forest management in relation to biodiversity in the past and present, which were published as part of the edition Strategy AV21 in the publishing house of the Czech Republic. Academia and Dokořán publishing house. In cooperation with the Institute of Sociology, questions for the CVVM questionnaire were designed.
