Cenomanian vegetation of the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin
Čepičková, Jana ; Kvaček, Jiří (advisor) ; Teodoridis, Vasilis (referee) ; Spicer, Robert A. (referee)
Cenomanian plant fossils from the Peruc-Korycany Formation of the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin, Czech Republic are described, analysed and their palaeoenvironment is interpreted. Cycad foliage Nilssonia mirovanae Čepičková et J.Kvaček including micromorphology of its cuticle was described. It shows deeply sunken stomatal apparati surrounded by papillae overhanging the stomatal pit. The haplocheilic stomata are arranged in rows. Todziaphyllum saportanum (Velen.) Čepičková et J.Kvaček is a serrate-margined leaf with semicraspedodromous venation. Since the cuticle of this plant fossil has not been preserved, macro-observation is the only method available. Ascarinophyllum pecinovense Čepičková et J.Kvaček is a serrate-margined leaf, having an abaxial cuticle covered by striations, randomly oriented, and radially oriented striations around the stomata. This species shows a combination of laterocytic/laterocyclocytic, stephanocytic-bicyclic, amphibrachyparacytic, less frequently brachyparacytic and holoparacytic stomata, sometimes with T-shaped thickenings of the internal cuticle at the poles. Papillaephyllum labutae Čepičková et J.Kvaček is characterised by leaves with serrate margins. It shows an abaxial cuticle covered by large papillae. Its stomatal apparatus shows a combination of latero-cyclocytic and...
Study of pollen in situ of Cretaceous conifers based on selected examples
Ludvíková, Anastázie ; Kvaček, Jiří (advisor) ; Dašková, Jiřina (referee)
The review part of this thesis focuses on the synthesis of knowledge about male cones of Mesosoic conifers and their pollen based on selected examples from Upper Cretaceous of Europe. This thesis especially examines families Cheirolepidiaceae, Podocarpaceae, Araucariaceae and Cupressaceae. In this thesis the characteristics of these families are supplemented with a comparison to their recent genera. The main method described in this thesis is the study of pollen in situ due to the majority of these selected examples being preserved as compressions. The practical part of the thesis aims to taxonomically classify the fossilized male cones provided from the collections of the National Museum, originating from the Peruc-Korycany Formation locality of Pecínov. One of these cones was assigned to the genus Classostrobus associated with the conifer Frenelopsis alata (family Cheirolepidiaceae) based on the presence of in situ pollen genus Classopollis and the shape of its microsporophylls. Key words: Cretaceous, conifers, pollen in situ
Study of fungi, algae and bryophytes from the Cretaceous of the Bohemian Massif and James Ross Island
Kadlecová, Veronika ; Kvaček, Jiří (advisor) ; Pšenička, Josef (referee)
The objective of this Diploma thesis is study of diversity of Late Cretaceous bryophytes, fungi and algae from selected localities of the Bohemian Massif and James Ross Island. The focus of the study is the most precise taxonomy assessment of the found fossils and comparsion of their diversity in selected localities from the Northern and the Southern hemispheres. The greatest emphasis is focused on bryophytes, but algae and fungi are mentioned as well. Thereare described two species of fungi, compared to recent genera Passalora and Stomiopeltis, one species of algaea ssigned to Phycopeltis, two species of liverworts assigned to Ricciopsis, one species of incertae sedis and two species of mosses assigned to Muscites and Livingstonites from the Bohemian Massif. Additionally, from James Ross Island there are three species of mosses described and assigned to Muscites and Livingstonites.
Gondwanian element of Latin American Flora
Potůčková, Anna ; Stančík, Daniel (advisor) ; Kvaček, Jiří (referee)
The concept of plate tectonics accepted during 20th century fundamentally changed general opinion on the origin of Latin American flora. It was found, that South America formed a part of the ancient continent Gondwana. This continent was covered by a unique flora until 100 million years ago. Actual disjunction of widely distributed tropical taxa present in South America originated after disruption of that original flora distribution. It was deduced that the separation of South America from Gondwana finished about 100 million years ago and led to the isolation of their flora until the formation of the Isthmus of Panama about 3 million years ago. However, recent studies based on molecular clock approaches shows that the exchange of biota between South America and rest of the World was possible several times in different ways before the closure of the Isthmus of Panama. The reevaluation of our opinion about the gondwanan origin of Latin American flora based on advanced molecular analysis is the aim of this work.
Sphenopterid type of true ferns from Carboniferous basins of Czech massive
Frojdová, Jana ; Pšenička, Josef (advisor) ; Kvaček, Jiří (referee) ; Rößler, Ronny (referee)
This thesis deals with the sphenopterid types of ferns from the Czech Carboniferous basins. Thesis is presented as a combination of two published papers in peer-reviewed journals, one manuscript in review and one manuscript ready for submission. The actual text of the thesis is a general introduction with introduction to the study subject of sphenopterid ferns, methodology, studied type collections, terminology and the result of my study. The introduction of the thesis provides a general overview of the ferns and history of their studies. All four papers presented here are focussed on modern redescription, redefinition, emendation and revision of genera Boweria Kidston, Dendraena Němejc, Sturia Němejc. Based on the revision of these genera, following two new genera were established: Kidstoniopteris gen.nov. and Paraszea gen.nov. A new species Boweria nowarudensis has been described during the course of this study. The "whole plant concept" was applied to all studied specimens, which allows to obtain as much information on the ferns morphology, anatomy, and reproductive organs as possible. This was combined with data on in situ spores as well as sedimentological and petrological analyses. The sporangial cells as annulus, stomium and apical cells and in situ spores were described for all genera and...
Leptosporangiate ferns from the Carboniferous basins of Bohemia, selected taxa
Frojdová, Jana ; Opluštil, Stanislav (advisor) ; Kvaček, Jiří (referee)
The diploma thesis revises ten selected species of sphenopterid ferns of Carboniferous age deposited in the National Museum in Prague, the West-Bohemian Museum in Pilsen and the British Geological Survey in Keyworth, England. Sphenopterid ferns were studied based on reproductive organs aquired by maceration of coalified plant remains preserved as compressions. Sporangia and their annulus are important diagnostic features for individual genera and species of sphenopterid ferns and for selected species have not been described yet. Following species were studied: Boweria schatzlarensis, Myriotheca anglica, Renaultia crépini, Sturia amoena, Oligocarpia gutbiery, Zeilleria hymenophylloides, Zeilleria avoldensis, Discopteris sp. ("doubravensis"), Scolecopteris elegans a Waldenburgia corynepteroides. With the exception of Waldenburgia corynepteroides, Scolecopteris elegans, Zeilleria hymenophylloides and Zeilleria avoldensis species type material was studied. Maceration of sporangia of Boweria schatzlarensis showed presence of lateral annulus while in case of Myriotheca anglica the annulus is lateral or more likely of a special type, placed on both sides of the sporangia. Annulus type determination of Renaultia crépini also made possible to assign this species within the range of the genus Tenchovia and...
Autecological study of selected Cretaceous plants using stable Carbon isotopes
Zahajská, Petra ; Kvaček, Jiří (advisor) ; Diefendorf, Aaron (referee)
1 Abstract This thesis presents an analysis of fossil plants from the Cenomanian Peruc-Korycany Formation of the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin and from the Bückeberg Formation of the Lower Saxony Basin in Germany. Based on earlier studies, both areas provide sediments that are considered to have developed in tidally influenced fluvial systems. Studied fossil plants are represented by ginkgoalean plant leaves (Ertemophyllum, Tritaenia), branches of conifers (Frenelopsis) and lauroid angiosperms (Eucalyptolaurus). Frenelopsis, Eretmophyllum and Tritaenia are considered to be halophytic plants, while Lauroid angiosperms were considered to grow in fresh water conditions. The fossil plants were studied using cuticle analysis and two methods of stable carbon isotope analysis: Bulk carbon isotope analysis and Compound Specific Isotope analysis. For cuticle analysis samples were observed and documented macroscopically and microscopically. To specify the environmental conditions, recent samples from three salt marshes in Great Britain were studied and analysed using the same methods as the fossil samples. The data from all observations and measurements were processed and their interpretation supported the modelled environment based on the sedimentological data. Frenelopsis were growing in a haline environment with low...
Mycorrhisa in fossil record
Kadlecová, Veronika ; Kvaček, Jiří (advisor) ; Gryndler, Milan (referee)
Mycorrhizal symbiosis is present in the vast majority of extant land plants. Mycorrhizae represent a significant source of nutrients for both partners of the symbiosis and can also provide them with protection or help them survive in less hospitable enviroment. Mycorrhizae is believed to have been just as important in the past and played a major role in evolution of plants, for example in the transition of plants onto land. Mycorrhizal symbiosis is an object of many research works today for its agricultural importance. There is an amount of publications on research of fossil mycorrhizae, but there is still little interest in this issue. Powered by TCPDF (
Forced passage of participating securities
Kvaček, Jiří ; Černá, Stanislava (advisor) ; Zahradníčková, Marie (referee)
This rigorous thesis deals with the topic of the forced passage of participating securities in a joint stock company as regulated by Act No. 90/2012 Coll., on Business Companies and Cooperatives (Act on Business Corporations), as amended, that has been extensively amended with effect from 1 January 2021. The purpose of this thesis is to conduct an in-depth legal analysis of the amended legislation, inter alia, by using the case law of the Czech courts, to draw attention to the shortcomings and ambiguities of the legislation, to suggest possible solutions and to try to identify the most appropriate one. In order to clarify the thesis, the text is divided into several chapters, of which every chapter contains an in-depth analysis of individual parts of the examined problematics, which can be understood as relatively separate areas. The chapters are further divided into subchapters. The first chapter is devoted to the explanation of the basic terms and instruments that are inseparably linked with the forced passage of participating securities. Understanding these terms and instruments is crucial for understanding the complex problematics of the forced passage of participating securities in general. The second chapter examines the problematics of the constitutional conformity of the legislation and...
