My main interest is functional morphology of plants. With colleagues we are building database of clonal and bud bank traits for flora of Central Europe, testing functionality of morphological traits in experiments and doing correlative studies and evolutionary analyses of different plant traits and environmental parameters for the whole flora. I am also writing blog in Czech where I am publishing small graphic arts (linocuts) inspired by my work.

On line CLO-PLA database is availble here

Aggregated and user-frendly form of the CLO-PLA database is accessible here

Handbook of standardized protocols for collecting plant modularity traits (clonal, bud bank, anatomy and storage)

Publications on Google scholar and Research gate

Book „Temperate herbs: an architectural analysis“ can be ordered here

Blog in Czech language

PhD course on assessment of belowground plant traits „Go belowground!
