AnotationLandscape is space in which man live and fulfil wide range of his needs. Landscape consist from partial landscape sphere ? lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, pedosphere and biosphere. Man affects each of this sphere in specific way. Simultaneously each of this sphere affects man being. Project is aimed to investigation of partial interaction between man and landscape. Specifically this problems will be investigate: (i) Research of braid bars and confluence zones, (ii) Influence of management intervention on zoocoenosis and zoocoenosis in vegetation tiers, (iii) anthropogenic acceleration of slope movements, (iv) ecosystem services of watercourse, (v) hydrological regimes of rivers in context of global change and specifics of flysch Carpathian mountains. To fulfil the main and partial goals methods of geomorphological mapping, sediment analyses, dendrochronology, environmental modelling, assessment of ecosystem services, research in archives and entomology collection will be used. Project outcomes will bring more knowledge to the functioning of particular processes and their interaction as a strong base for responsible management of landscape.
