Skrócony opis:

The objective of the course is to promote students awareness of the importance of geological heritage conservation and soil protection, based on assessment of landscape conditions, susceptibility of soils to degradation and restoration of degraded soils as well as familiarize them with legislation on soil protection. Furthermore protection of biodiversity of rural areas gives the students basic information of biological diversity concepts and levels. Lectures are focused on forms of nature and biodiversity protection on rural areas. Classes are concentrated on comparison of biodiversity strategies in particular countries.

1. Multifunctional role of soils in the environment. Basic terms related to soil protection and conservation.

2. Soil erosion.

3. Physical deterioration of soils, geotechnical deformations.

4. Chemical degradation –soil acidification and pollution with organic and inorganic materials.

5. Biological degradation – organic matter decline

6. Definition of the biological diversity. Main resolutions of the Biodiversity Convention.

7. Threats and protection of species: red lists and books, protection “in situ” and “ex situ”, protection of the threatened weed species.

8. Biodiversity protection on the ecosystems level – renaturalization of changed and degraded ecosystems.
