We will assess temporal changes and the impact of the overgrowth of fishpond transition zones in Třeboňsko PLA by woody plants on the structure of ecological communities in selected taxa of animals and plant community types. We will compare three types of currently most represented wetland zones: low wetland vegetation, reed beds, willow growths; which also represent different phases of succession and parts of the ecological gradient. Apart from evaluation of spatial patterns at landscape scale, we will establish an experimental site to evaluate the effects of woody plants elimination on temporal changes in community structure and describe microclimatic conditions in studied biotopes. The project provides an expert basis for future practical management of wetland landscapes.
