A multi-level ecological network in the Czech Republic : implementating the Territorial System of Ecological Stability

Auteur :

Description :
In the late 1970s, a concept of an ecological network in former Czechoslovakia, called the Territorial System of Ecological Stability (TSES) was formulated as a response to large-scale natural and semi-natural habitat fragmentation and loss. In the Czech Republic, the TSES concept is a part of the environmental legislation. The whole system is the network of ecologically significant segments of landscape, efficiently distributed on the basis of functional and spatial criteria, covering biotic, hydrological, soil and relief conditions. It consists of biocentres, corridors and buffer zones and is established at 3 hierarchical levels : local, regional and national.
