A week ago, Filip and Robert have attended the 10th European Conference on Ecological Restoration in Freising. Filip, whose attendance was funded by a scholarship from the Society for Ecological Restoration, has presented a talk on differences between effects of technical reclamation on terrestrial and rather understudied freshwater biodiversity. Robert, together with Klára Řehounková, has led a special session “Conservation importance of early successional stages in restoration of human-made sites” where he presented results of meta-analyses of all the known records of butterflies and spiders in Czech post-industrial localities.
