AnotationMan always forms the landscape. From the neolithic revolution the intensity gradually grew. From industrial revolution the intensity is unprecedented. Different types of landscape ant its resources have different attractiveness for man. More attractive landscapes are under bigger influence of man. This project is multidisciplinary aimed to investigate partial interaction between man and landscape. Specifically this problems will be investigate: (i) Research of braid bars, confluence zones and bottom morphology, (ii) habitat degradation of brown trout, (iii) hydrological regime in context of basin geology, (iv) ecosystem services of watercourse and senescent trees, (v) accelerated runoff of water from compacted surface of skid trails. To fulfil the main and partial goals methods of geomorphological mapping, sediment analyses, sonar scanning of watercourse bottom, fish catching, precipitation and runoff measurement, assessment of ecosystem services and questionnaire survey. Outcome of project will be particular scientific basis about functioning of landscape, and also point of view of man on landscape function. Both of this outcomes are valuable for landscape administrators.
