Osud hradů a zámků po roce 1989 v okresech Tábor, Český Krumlov a Prachatice
The thesis will deal with the fate of castles and chateaus in three districts of the South Bohemian Region, one inland and two border districts located in the area of the former Sudetenland. In the theoretical part of the thesis, three basic aspects influencing their historical development will be discussed - the role of conservation, the number of visitors and the owners of the castles and chateaux. In the research part I will create a database of still existing castles and palaces in selected districts. This will be followed by a presentation of the five selected objects, consisting of a brief history and a description of the historical development of the castle or chateau in the 20th century, which had a significant impact on its post-war status. The aim of the thesis is to map the fate of castles and chateaux in the three districts under study, as well as to provide a detailed description of the five selected historic buildings.
Evolution of the genus Malus with a particular reference to old and local cultivars
Polcar, Václav ; Urfus, Tomáš (advisor) ; Macková, Lenka (referee)
The following work deals with the genus Malus in terms of the significant diversity that this genus represents. It summarizes a basic knowledge about the taxonomic position and world centers of the genus evolution. Part of the thesis also discussed reproductive mechanisms as a source of the genus diversity. The thesis then focuses on the species Malus domestica, its evolution and the hybrid origin. In this context, old varieties of apple trees, their significance and pomologically important regions of the Czech Republic are presented. An integral part of this work is also devoted to the protection of old varieties, its limits and possibilities. The protection of old varieties also encompasses the extensive orchard as an important agroecosystem. Finally, different Czech regions are compared with respect to the quantity of reported old varieties.
Reconstruction of the fishpond system of Dymokury region
Kupka, Jiří
The article presents the results of the research on the historical cultural landscape in the administrative district of the Poděbrady Region carried out within the NAKI II project Practical Approaches to the Territorial Protection of Historical Cultural Landscapes. The research included the definition of units and units of historical cultural landscape and then a detailed analysis of the partially relict landscape of the former fishpond system of Dymokury Region. A partial output of the project was a map reconstruction of the fishponds and dykes to the state of 1713, from which the description of the ponds on the estate survived, presented in the form of an interactive map. The text presents the sources used, among which the archival maps stand out, especially the first military mapping, confronted with cadastral maps, aerial photographs and a digital relief model. On the basis of the analysis, 91 fishpond sites were identified in the study area, which were entered into the map and described and documented in detail. Thirty of them have been preserved to date, the rest of the water bodies have disappeared. Several larger ponds have survived on the Štítarský Brook, on the Smíchovský Brook and on the Záhornický Brook. Some of the fishponds have remained wet meadows, others have disappeared completely, but they are visible in the terrain, including the dykes that are still prominent today. The results of the analyses show that even a seemingly ordinary and uninteresting agricultural field landscape has a number of historical landscape structures, moreover with historically proven potential for water retention in the landscape.
Methodology of the Principles of Rehabilitation of Cultural Heritage Buildings
Balík L. ; Nedvědová K. ; Šimůnek I. ; Kudrnáčová L. ; Bolom-Kotari S.
The aim of the presented methodology is to summarize the rehabilitation principles that can be applied in the context of the repair of historic buildings. The methodology defines the fundamental influences that affect the approach to rehabilitation and also specifies the individual steps that are part of the actual implementation. Attention is paid to three basic areas of rehabilitation measures. These are addressing moisture and related problems, modifying the indoor microclimate, and restoring or strengthening the structural function of the building. Concerning conservation aspects, the principles presented are directed predominantly towards conserving and prolonging the life of the existing structural elements, taking into account future use and operation. The preservation of the original forms and functions of the individual structures is pursued as far as possible. The target group of users of this methodology is conservation officers, designers, owners, and managers of historic buildings. The methodology provides these users with the basic information for initiating the restoration of monuments.

Appropriate restoration practices to preserve traces of stone working. The use of close-range photogrammetry to evaluate the suitability of restoration procedures
Cihla, Michal ; Frommeltová, E. ; Hodač, J. ; Kovářová, K. ; Pavelka, K. ; Panáček, M. ; Valach, Jaroslav
This preservation procedure is the result of the research project entitled „Building stone surface topography and its application in the field of stone features restoration“ No.DG20P02OVV021, supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic. The aim of the preservation procedure was to verify the suitability and applicability of precise measuring methods in order to assess the degree of restoration intervention in the area of traces of stone surface working. The method of close-range photogrammetry was chosen as a tool to evaluate the changes in the topography of stone surfaces bearing traces of working.

Conservation genetics of Galápagos mockingbirds: from immune genes to genomes
VLČEK, Jakub
In this thesis I have dealt with the population genetic processes of mockingbirds in the Galápagos Islands ( Mimus ) in relation to the limited island area, from the perspective of two types of immune genes and the genome-wide approach. The thesis starts with an introduction to population genetic concepts relevant to conservation genetics followed by description of immune genes: the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) and the Toll-like receptors (TLR). In the final part of the introduction, I address how genetic drift, selection and inbreeding shape genome-wide genetic patterns in small populations. The introduction is followed by four chapters, beginning with an examination of MHCII polymorphism in populations of mockingbirds in the Galápagos Islands. The study of the relationship between MHCII and the abundance of ectoparasites is the content of the second chapter. The third chapter shows how polymorphism of TLRs is shaped by interaction of genetic drift and natural selection. The last chapter deals with the effects of limited island size on inbreeding and genetic load, supported by inferences of the past demography of mockingbirds. The thesis concludes with a summary of the results and their potential implications in the field of conservation genetics.
