The subject of the research plan is study of biodiversity on the level of populations and communities on various temporal and spatial scales with focus on interactions with the environment, mutual interactions between organisms, historical and evolutionary interpretation of existing patterns, identification of biotic indicators of ecological processes, and the development of formalized typologies of communities and habitats in terrestrial, semiterrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The research focuses on model groups of organisms, defined on the basis of taxonomy or ecology, across the phylogenetic system, including environmental bacteria, vascular plants, invertebrates including parasitic ones, and vertebrates. Besides traditional methodologies established in each field, general methods of molecular genetics, bioinformatics, geoinformatics, applied statistics, and analytical chemistry are be used in the research.
