Scenarios of future land use and ecosystem services in Europe
Name of the supervisor
Mgr. Róbert Pazúr, PhD.
Prírodovedecká fakulta UK
Same as in past decades, the future landscape in Europe will need to adapt to current natural and societal challenges (climate change, urbanisation pressure, demography). This PhD aims to develop the scenarios of plausible pathways of future development of land-use and ecosystem services in selected areas of Europe. Core data used would be the land cover data, natural and socioeconomic statistics and outcomes of stakeholder workshops. A successful candidate should be fluent in English and has a passion for land-use modelling, modelling of ecosystem services and exploring the causalities of processes shaping the landscape. This PhD position offers a great way of joining international research projects and practical integration of research findings.
