Ecological optimization of the utilization of landslide areas in selected parts of the flysch zone in regard to the traditional farming
Ekologická optimalizácia využívania zosuvných území vo vybraných častiach flyšového pásma, so zreteľom na ich tradičné obhospodarovanie
Program: VEGA
Project leader: RNDr. Barančoková Mária PhD.
Annotation:The occurrence of landslides in the flysch zone of the Western Carpathians has conditioned the utilization of landscape from the beginning of the settlement. Places that have not been affected by the construction processes were used according to the needs of the agricultural population. Each intervention had an impact on the development of coenosis thereby creating specific habitats with high variability. This was so not only because of natural specificities of individual localities, but also due to diversity of management habits and skills in dispersed settlements (called "kopanice"). Slope deformations represent geofactor, which significantly affects the quality of the environment. The project aims to develop a methodology of assessment of landslide areas in flysch environment and their use in traditional farming, the application of this methodology in selected areas and suggestions for ecological optimization of utilization.

The evaluation of cultural ecosystem services countries on a basis of landscape research for the ecological model of tourism development
Hodnotenie kultúrnych ekosystémových služieb krajiny na báze krajinnoekologických výskumov pre ekologické modely rozvoja cestovného ruchu
Program: VEGA
Project leader: RNDr. Krnáčová Zdena PhD.
Annotation:Scientific objective of the project is the creation and application of new quantitative methods for assessing ecosystem services of cultural landscapes. Starting from the evaluation of landscape ecological significance (LES) elements LAND COVER by biodiversity, ecosystems aesthetic value (EAV), cultural-historical significance of cultural heritage (CHAS). The basis is the mapping of the actual state and characteristics of the elements of the current landscape cover (LAND COVER) of the urban environment of Bratislava, which we processed under the legend CORINE Land Cover Technical Quide - Addendum 2000 (Bossard, Feranec, Oťahl, 2000) on 3rd, 4th, and 5th hierarchical level. The representation of the landscape cover classes is processed in vector form, resulting from the synthesis of the thematic and relevant layers contained in the ZB GIS, supplemented by a licensed current installation derived from orthophotomaps from aeronautical imaging. 2015 (EUROSENSE, s.r.o.2015). These were complemented by a terrain research in 2014-2017, 2018. This year we processed 8 cadastres within the model territory of Bratislava. The aim is the proposal of diversified ecological forms and species of tourism (ECOTUR), which take into account the ecosystems benefits and the social value of the original habitats and cultural-historical objects. Part of the ECOTUR models will be the elaboration of measures and regulatives with possibility implementation in strategy documents.

Independent evaluation of the Rural Development Programme for the period 2014-2020
Nezávislé hodnotenie Programu rozvoja vidieka SR pre obdobie 2014-2020
Program: Other projects
Project leader: Ing. Špulerová Jana PhD.
Annotation:Processing of documents for evaluation report of the Rural Development Programme for 2014-2020, including answering the evaluation questions which provides an independent assessment of the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and achievements, impact and success and failure factors.

New possibilities of use of drainage canal systems with taking into account the protection and use of a landscape
Nové možnosti využitia odvodňovacích kanálových sústav s ohľadom na ochranu a využívanie krajiny
Program: SRDA
Project leader: Mgr. Kalivoda Henrik PhD.
Annotation:Drainage canal system, as artificial multifunctional anthropogenic elements in a landscape have other specific functions which were not paid attention yet. The reason of construction of those canal systems was the intensification of agricultural production and discharge of inland waters. Their construction characters are analogical to a stream. These characters must be re-evaluated from the point of their functional use under real conditions of an area. Due to the change of agricultural policy, further construction and maintenance practically does not exist and the lifetime of connected technical segments is getting to the end. Secondary drainage canals are gradually overgrown, wood vegetation develops and canals stop fulfilling their main function. Similar situation appears in case of main canals, moreover, their use is bound to capacity of pumping stations. Primary and secondary drainage canals are important connective landscape elements and serve also as a refugium, or biocentre for several kinds of organisms. There appear significant successive processes in the canal network. Based on reevaluation of present state of drainage canals there will be elaborated a proposal of measures of their primary functions and proposal of their multifunctional use. New possibilities of use of drainage canals are important from the point of view of protection and use of the landscape, namely the development and stability of biodiversity.

Speed Route R1 - Appropriate Impact Assessment on the territories of the Natura 2000
Rýchlostná cesta R1 - Primerané posúdenie vplyvov na územia Natura 2000
Program: Other projects
Project leader: RNDr. Barančok Peter CSc.
Annotation:The project is divided into three separate sections - sections of the speed route R1: 1. Slovenská Ľupča - Korytnica, border of the region, 2. Korytnica, border of the region - Ružomberok, south and 3. Ružomberok, south - Crossroad D1. The aim of the project is implementation of detailed research of flora, fauna and habitats in the affected area and to prepare documentation for an appropriate assessment of the impacts of the proposed activity on the territories of the Natura 2000 in terms of the Methodology for evaluation of the significance of the effects of plans and projects on the territories of the Natura 2000 in the Slovak Republic.

Green Infrastructure of Slovakia
Zelená infraštruktúra Slovenska
Program: VEGA
Project leader: RNDr. Moyzeová Milena PhD.
Annotation:The concept of green infrastructure, the same as the territorial systems of ecological stability, is aimed at the progressive transition from the black-and-white division of the country to the protected and unprotected parts, to an all-area differentiated system preserving ecologically convenient landscape structure with different ways of use. Hence, the aim of the proposed Green Infrastructure and mitigation of the negative effects of its barriers is conservation and support to biodiversity and diversity of Slovakia’s landscape and provision for their beneficial effects on the surrounding ecologically less stable parts of the country, support to variants of multifunctional land use with the aim to protect individual components of the environment, conservation of important landscape

Changes in Slovak Landscape Driven by European Union Agricultural Policy
Zmeny poľnohospodárskej krajiny Slovenska vplyvom politík Európskej Únie
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Lieskovský Juraj PhD.
Annotation:The project is focused on identification and evaluation of changes in agricultural landscape (AL), which were after 2004 affected by the EU legislation in fields of agriculture, water protection and nature conservation. It is based on analysis of the EU policies as drivers of changes in AL. It will study types and intensity of use of AL on regional and local levels. The project combines methods of remote sensing (RS) and field research. RS will be used for timely obtaining information on AL. Also will be developed and tested innovative approaches and methods with use of new satellite sensors. In local scale will be studied impact of changes in use in AL on biodiversity. For biodiversity study were selected indication groups of vegetation, invertebrates (spiders, dragonflies) and vertebrates (amphibians, birds). Studied will be sites from which exist data from previous research, wetlands and newly evolved biotopes in AL. The final phase will be synthesis of current state and changes in AL and biodiversity.
