Changes in the distribution of invasive neophytes in the riparan vegetation of the Berounka river
Randová, Nela ; Matějček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Lipský, Zdeněk (referee)
Riparian vegetation along the water courses is one of the places that are highly vulnerable to the spread of invasive alien plants. Water corridors allow their easy and rapid spread to new area. The diploma thesis occupies with changes in the distribution of the invasive neophytes in the riparian vegetation of the Berounka river during the years 2015-2018. The objective of this study was to find out how changes in the course of each year will be reflected and whether a certain trend of population development can be traced. In connection with this, the thesis occupies with the possible influence of extremely dry years 2015 and 2018 on the occurrence of invasive neophytes. Field research took place on the banks of the Berounka river from the village of Čilá near Skryje to the confluence of the Berounka and Vltava river in Prague-Lahovice during the summer months in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. The riparian vegetation was divided into 500 ± 150 m long segments. There were 90 segments where the occurrence and abundance of 17 invasive neophytes were mapped. In total, occurrence of 14 taxons was registered. The most frequent taxons were Robinia pseudacacia, Impatiens glandulifera and Solidago sp. in the Berounka riverbank vegetation. The highest number of specimen was recorded for invasive neophyte...

The events of the track and fields on the programme of modern olympic games
Matějček, Tomáš ; Kolář, František (advisor) ; Kaplan, Aleš (referee)
Title: The events of the track and fields on the programm of modern olympic games Objectives: The main task of this work is to trace how the program of the athletic disciplines has developed on the individual olympic games, how the disciplines have been added by the time and how they have dissapeared from the program and trying to explain why it was. Another task is to document the individual olympic games and their most important events, especially in athletics. Methods: The induction method represents a thought process in which more general statements and theories are formulated from individual facts; a deduction method in which conclusions for individual elements are derived from general statements. Results: Recording of changes of athletic disciplines on the program of the olympic games, evaluation of the development of the athletic disciplines and the olympic games, recording of important events and personalities of individual games. Keywords: Modern olympic games; the olympic games program; the track and field.
The spread of invasive neophytes in the riparian vegetation of the Lužnice River
Eliášová, Kateřina ; Matějček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Hrdina, Aleš (referee)
This thesis studies the spread of invasive neophytes along the South Bohemian Lužnice River. The literature search deals with plant invasions, floodplains and the area of interest. The riparian vegetation along the Lužnice River was mapped with emphasis on 17 taxons of invasive neophytes. The mapping was realized in four sections that were 3-5 km long. The results are compared with the state ascertained by monitoring in the same location in 2008. The results indicate a general increase of invasions and an intensive spread of Impatiens parviflora since the previous mapping. Generally widespread invasive taxa in the studied area are Impatiens parviflora and Impatiens glandulifera of the herbaceous plants. The occurence of Robinia pseudacacia of the woody plants is also common. Other observed taxa occur only locally or in smaller amounts. Keywords: IAS, riparian vegetation, plant invasion, vegetation mapping, watercourse, vegetation change
Forest pedagogy and its value for geographical education
Rothbauerová, Nikola ; Matějček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Jelen, Jakub (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the topic of forest pedagogy and possibilities of its use in geographical education. The introductory theoretical part based on the content analysis of domestic and foreign literary sources summarizes the present knowledge of the forest pedagogy in the domestic and world context. It describes this educational direction and its differences from other forest pedagogy-related educational approaches. It introduces the person of the forest pedagogue and the used educational methods. It briefly characterizes the problems of geographic education in our country and tries to find connections between teaching geography and forest pedagogy. The practical part explains how forest pedagogy can contribute to geographic education. It is based on a qualitative research conducted through structured interviews with forest pedagogues. On the basis of the analysis of the obtained data, it explains which geography topics are taught in forest pedagogy programs and how forest pedagogy can be used for geographic education.
Modeling of potential distribution of beaver in watershed of the river Mže
Procházková, Zuzana ; Romportl, Dušan (advisor) ; Matějček, Tomáš (referee)
Diploma thesis is focused on habitat requirements of European beaver (Castor fiber) and conflicts arising thereof in the catchment area of the river Mže. Based on current occurence the potential distribution of this species is predicted. In the introductory part the model species and his habitat requierements are described. Further attention is given to occurence of European beaver in the area of the Czech republic with emphasis on the catchment area of the river Mže. On the basis of know data concerning occurence of European beaver in the area of interest the potentional distribution of beaver is evaluated based on habitat requirements using programmes ArcGIS 10.2 and MAXENT 3.3. These results are supported by terrain mapping in selected areas. Tables, grafs and thematic maps , which clearly represent the results, are part of submitted thesis. Thus, the main aim of the thesis is to describe habibat requirements of European beaver, predict his future spreding in the catchment area of river Mže and identify possible conflict zones. Keywords: the Eurasian beaver, Castor fiber, Mže river, habitat modeling, MaxEnt
Fieldwork education from perspectives of different actors
Jakouběová, Ivana ; Matějček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Jelen, Jakub (referee)
Fieldwork is a specific component of education, which has the potential in a more complex demonstration of curriculum especially in the field of geography. We can only assume whether the classical form of fieldwork education is currently in decline, but new opportunities are emerging in the changing educational environment in which fieldwork could be used. This bachelor thesis was written with the aim of finding current potentials, but also the limits of fieldwork education. Based on qualitative research in the form of interviews, we want to answer questions about the ways how is fieldwork education used on different schools and how the main benefits and constraints are perceived directly by the actors of the education system on different levels. The conclusions are compared and discussed with the knowledge from theoretical part of the thesis. Keywords geography, fieldwork education, qualitative research, perception, interview
The use of stories in Geography textbooks
Čistecká, Barbora ; Matějček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Kocová, Tereza (referee)
This bachelor thesis, as the title suggests, discusses stories and passages from literature pieces found in Czech geography textbooks and worksheets. These texts are assessed according to their school-based education involvement, as suggested in the textbook. Next, it is evaluated which cognitive processes are developed in pupils and students by these questions and tasks, which are included in respective texts. This research is supported by the theoretical part which, while using literature resources, elaborates on integrated education in the Czech education system, information from abroad is added as well. This part discusses mainly assumptions for integrated education, its advantages, benefits, and inspiration or motivation to further student education. Special attention is given to the integration of Geography and Literature education. This thesis further elaborates on narrative pedagogy, where the benefits of using stories in education are summarized.
Light pollution of the Kladno region
Klauda, Ondřej ; Matějček, Tomáš (advisor) ; Bobr, Ladislav (referee)
Light pollution is an environmental problem caused by overuse of artificial light at night. Light pollution mainly affects densely populated areas and industrial regions. In addition to night sky brightening, light pollution also causes discomfort and has negative health and environmental impacts. The literature review of this bachelor thesis deals with light, light pollution and the study area in three chapters. The aim of the practical part is examination of interaction of landscape and light pollution. On the basis of field measurements by the Sky Quality Meter in the surroundings of Kladno, the effect of forest on propagation of light pollution is assessed. The working hypothesis assumes the barrier effect of the forest. The hypothesis is not safely confirmed by the results, nevertheless the influence of Prague on night sky brightness has been shown. Keywords: light pollution, night sky brightness, barrier effect of forest, Sky Quality Meter, Kladno region
Land use change in the Cheb area - new wilderness
Pekárková, Hana ; Bičík, Ivan (advisor) ; Matějček, Tomáš (referee)
The theses deals with exploration of new wilderness which comes into being in abandoned areas in border regions in the Cheb district. Using the newly defined transformation index, two cadastral territories in the district were identified with the highest probability of new wilderness occurence. The occurrence of a new wilderness was demonstrated in both cadastral areas and was categorized into typology already established. Photographs and ArcGis maps were added to the field survey. Post-habitat and post-agrarian new wilderness were identified in both cadastral territories. Further, there were identified post-montane and post-aquatic new wilderness. Despite the position near the border, where the Iron Curtain was located, post- military new wilderness was not identified there. New wilderness occurs in both localities on more than 10 % of area. Keywords: Land use, change of landscape, new wilderness, West Bohemia
