Preparation of an action plan for Gentianella praecox subsp. bohemica

Name: Preparation of an action plan for Gentianella praecox subsp. bohemica
Researchers: Lampei Bucharová Anna (head – principal researcher)
Project Type: C - other (Research and development projects of ministries, contracts and agreements on targeted research and cooperation, etc.)
Realization from: 2009
Realization to: 2010
Summary: At the beginning of the 20th century the Bohemian Early Gentian (Gentianella praecox bohemica) still occurred relatively abundantly in the entire Czech Republic except for western and north-western Bohemia and south-eastern and eastern Moravia. As a result of changes in the habitat management – abandonment of grazing and regular mowing, ploughing meadows and pastures, eutrophication of habitats, invasion of bushes etc. – the plant has been gradually disappearing in wild: currently its occurrence is limited to only 65 sites, most of them in Šumava (Bohemian Forest) and in the Šumava-Nové Hrady foothills. Aim of the project is to prepare an action plan for this species.
