Development of dry grassland communities during recultivation of limestone quarries
Turek, Pavel ; Münzbergová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Kladivová, Anna (referee)
My bachelor thesis is about methods of reclamation and rejuvenation of limestone limestone quarry, that are a very interesting location from an ecological point of view. I briefly pointed out the positives and negatives of individual used methods, such as reclamation, that aims to restore the vegetation cover quickly, but is very expensive and species that appear on the reclaimed locations aren't nearly as rare, as those on locations that are left to natural succession. Natural succession has the best results if the location is in close vicinity to a source of seeds. Reclaimed areas show a significantly lower biodiversity and hinder protection of rare and key species as opposed to natural succession. To avoid this, in some cases we can use smaller interventions instead of reclamation, and these interventions should be done as delicately as possible with the principles of natural succession in mind. I've noted important factors such as the microclimate, the soil conditions and the source of seeds, that can affect the succession and the legislation and waste law, that influence to a certain degree how the rejuvenation of disrupted sites proceeds.

Vodáková, Lucie ; Láb, Filip (advisor) ; Turek, Pavel (referee)
Bachelor thesis deals with the work of Czech photo editors in a daily and weekly papers. The work analyzes what their function in media is, what their common day looks like, who they are speaking with and then what their daily decisions about photographs are. The first chapters describe the role of photo editors as gatekeepers. I try to compare what was their job earlier, when the time of technological convergence didn't exist. I deal with a photo editing practicies like searching, selection and gathering materials too. The second analytic part consist of the deep interviews with photo editors and other members of newsroom. I compare their information with the information of foreign media books. The object of the thesis is to show on six chosen important Czech daily and weekly papers how the photo editors work, what is their leading role and whether they are important for the organization or not.

Concept of popular music studies for the Czech academic context - contribution to the development of Czech media studies
Pospíšil, Michal ; Reifová, Irena (advisor) ; Turek, Pavel (referee) ; Opekar, Aleš (referee)
The topic of popular music has not been granted much attention in the Czech academic environment so far. Even less attention has been given to popular music in the Czech study of media. When analyzing media, the role of popular music is routinely neglected and its effects overlooked. The thesis surveys arguments that support music as a relevant subject for Czech media studies and determines whether the current exploration of popular music could provide useful knowledge for expanding the coverage of existing media studies tradition in the country and possibly for improving it. In its core, the thesis provides a picture of Czech musicology (especially on its popularization edge, sensitive to popular music) and the Anglo-American tradition of the study of popular music, popular music studies. It identifies and critically assesses the strengths and weaknesses of each area with regards to the study of media. In conclusion, the thesis confirms the need for the Czech popular music studies as a necessary component of the study of popular culture in the context of media studies. It suggests areas for further research and highlights its potential pitfalls - especially problems with application of Western theories in local context, the romantic ideology of rock and disproportionate focus on the exceptional....

The Performance of Masculinity in the Milieu of Czech Extreme Metal
Hradecká, Anna Marie ; Zdrálek, Vít (advisor) ; Turek, Pavel (referee)
Using a method of reflexive ethnography, this thesis deals with a question of masculinity performace in the Czech extreme metal milieu (to be specific I am concerned with the brutal death metal and related sub-genres). Participants of the brutal death metal subculture either in the position of performers or audience are with a very few exceptions men. Brutality, harshness, extremeness and other values are the main aesthetic criteria, which - as we can observe while doing the research - the participants connect with a coherent collection of ideas about a certain ideal of dominant manhood. To achieve these values to the greatest extent possible the musicians use particular musical features and topics of the compositions; and so does both the musicians and the audience via their visual image, with using specific kind of behaviour and having fixed movements and dancing during the music production. On the basis of an analysis of these values and means of their manifestation I am concerned with the question of what specific characteristics the masculine identity, which is performed in the given subculture, has. My research data show that these are: 1) mutual affinity with the other participants, 2) power as an ability of an aggressive attack as well as one's own endurance, and 3) coarseness, lack of...
