Researcher at the Faculty of Environment, CZU in Prague. Tomáš is interested in conservation and ecology of insects (especially butterflies) in human-altered ecosystems (post-mining areas, urban areas, areas affected by biological invasions). He is responsible for the coordination of the entire project, field work (especially monitoring of populations of target species and other diurnal butterflies, management interventions) and creation of outputs (finalization of datasets, monitoring reports, etc.). He also participates in outreach activities of the topic and project (field excursions, etc.).
Researcher and head of the Insect Ecology Group at the Faculty of Environment, CZU in Prague. Michal has been interested in the ecology and conservation of insects for a long time, especially in habitats strongly influenced by human activities. However, he also engages in basic research focused on insect evolutionary biology and physiology. His task is to help with the coordination of the entire project, field work (flexible management, monitoring of insect communities), assistance with laboratory work (sample sorting) and implementation of outputs (project media coverage, control and final reports, etc.).
Graduated at the Faculty of Environment of the CZU in Prague (Applied Ecology and Nature Conservation study programs), where after completing his doctorate he works as a scientific and technical worker in the Insect Ecology Group. In addition to the problematics of insect communities in invasive tree stands, Martin has long been involved in practical management actions in open habitats. As part of the project, he implements management interventions, ensures communication with external suppliers and assists with monitoring of non-target groups of arthropods (coordination of monitoring, laboratory processing of samples).
Graduated at the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague, where he is completing a doctorate focused on ecology of orthopterans. He is currently employed as a scientific and technical worker in the Insect Ecology Group of the CZU in Prague. Tomáš has long-term experience with field research on insects, where, in addition to locusts and grasshoppers, he also works with butterflies. Within the project, he is responsible for the monitoring of target butterfly species. He will also participate in the implementation of flexible management actions and in the creation of project outputs (map outputs, creation of scientific texts).
Currently a Master student at the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague (Zoology) and a scientific and technical worker in the Insect Ecology Group at CZU in Prague. Tomáš has extensive experience with projects focused on butterfly ecology and conservation, from a detailed study of specific species to entire communities, including extreme ecosystems. Within the project, he participates in the monitoring of target butterfly species, is partly involved in flexible management measures and in the creation of outputs (data analysis, drafting of scientific texts).
Currently, the coordinator of environmental programs for schools in the Podhoubí Ecocentre. Previously, Jana worked as a researcher at the Institute of Botany of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and at the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague, focusing on ecology of plant communities in dry grasslands and abandoned fields. Her task within the project is the implementation of monitoring of plant communities, preparation of materials for popularization (publicity) of the project and assistance with project administration within the Podhoubí Ecocenter.
