Tropical Biodiversity

Research at Czech University of Life Sciences Prague

The Tropical Biodiversity Group focuses its research mainly on these areas:

1) The role of agroforestry in biodiversity conservation by comparing various land use systems, we investigate the potential of agroforestry as agricultural practice to conserve biodiversity of different taxa of plants as well as animals (trees, herbaceous plants, insects, small mammals etc.);
2) Agroforestry tree domestication – tree diversity (morphological, genetic and chemical), tree farmers‘ preferences in agroforestry systems, vegetative propagation, genetic diversity of tropical crops and trees;
3) Neglected/underutilized plant species.
