(project własny)

The aim of this project is to determine the mechanisms and rate of transformations of geo-ecosystems taking into account socioeconomic processes that cause land use changes. The aim will be realised through direct field research of selected geo-ecosystems as well as through registering transformations in different time periods. Completion of the project should provide an answer to the question about how ongoing socioeconomic changes have affected the natural environment, especially in terms of the composition of plant communities, the chemical composition of soil in agriculturally unused areas, and, consequently, how these changes have affected hydrographic conditions and geomorphic processes. At the same time, an attempt will be made to characterise past transformations that have taken place since the Gorce Mountains were colonised, by determining the period when deforestation and human agricultural activity began.
