ABSTRACT

The paper deals with applying of the GIS tool “gap analyse” in order to assess the effectiveness of protected areas in floodplain forests conservation in the Czech Republic. European floodplains have been significantly influenced by human activities in the past. Despite of it floodplain forests are important biodiversity refugees and thus these forests habitats are in the focus of conservation efforts. Currently, the Natura 2000 network increasingly supports biodiversity conservation in Europe. Based on results of mapping habitats in the frame of Natura 2000, we analysed overlapping of floodplain forests habitats with borders of protected areas in GIS visualization were summarized and analyzed in order to assess an effectiveness of territorial system of protected areas in study area of the Czech Republic. Results indicate that analyzed system of all categories of protected areas is highly effectiveness in achievement of conservation targets with exceptions of national park category, which does not cover floodplain forest habitats in study area yet.

Keywords: floodplain forest, habitat mapping, protected areas, Natura 2000.
