The subject will show several examples of environmental issues important in central European areas such as land restoration after mining, agriculture and its environmental impact, protection of biodiversity, eutrophication of waters, emerging pollutants, and air pollution. Each block will include an introduction to some basic subject necessary for understanding the problem, then an overview of a particular problem and its origin, and possible solution. The subject is suitable for students who have at least a basic knowledge of biology and ecology.
