CZECH-POLISH-SLOVAK SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE OF BOTANICAL GARDENS

"Biodiversity conservation and ecological education – the challenges in the united Europe"

From the Editor,

The extended united Europe brings many new targets for its members, especially for the new members of the EU since May 1st, 2004, also in the areas of environment and biodiversity conservation. Therefore, we decided to organize an international conference entitled “Biodiversity conservation and ecological education – the challenges in the united Europe” for the botanical gardens and gene banks from three neighbouring countries: the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic and Poland. The main task of this conference was the presentation of the national and international projects on plant diversity conservation in these three new members of the EU and the exchange of information about ex situ conservation methods of plant diversity achievements in this topic as well as new forms and tasks of ecological education. The goal of the conference organized was to strengthen the collaboration of botanical gardens in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland by establishing the trans-boundary network. Cieszyn was chosen as venue for conference, being a Polish city located in Upper Silesian Region on the frontier with the Czech Republic, very closely to the Slovak Republic. The conference was organized in the facilities of the Cieszyn branch of the Silesian University and the main organizers were: Botanical Garden – Centre for Biological Diversity Conservation of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Silesian Botanical Garden in Mikołów, Silesian University and the Regional Directorate of State Forests in Katowice. The conference was attended by 87 participants, who presented 20 invited lectures or oral communications and 32 poster presentations in the framework of 3 sessions:

1 – European and national programmes for biodiversity conservation,
2 – Plant diversity conservations in botanical gardens and gene banks – new trends,

3 – New tasks of ecological education.

The conference also included 3 field tours to gardens and forests of Upper Silesia: to Moravian Gate Arboretum in Racibórz, to the Municipal Palm House in Gliwice, to the forest nurseries of the State Forest District Rudy Raciborskie and to the seed nursery and seed bank of State Forests District Wisła. 

The conference organizers would like to stress their thanks to all participants, especially to our guests and friends from the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic for visiting Poland and for presenting such interesting contributions. Special thanks are given to our sponsors:
Mr. Michał Czarski – Marshal of the Silesian Voivodeship, Professor Janusz Janeczek – H.M. Rector of Silesian University, Dr. Bogdan Ficek – Mayor of the City Cieszyn, Mr. Andrzej Janik – director of Municipal Administration of Communal Services in Gliwice, Mr. Jan Osuchowski – president of the City Racibórz and Dr. Kazimierz Szabla – director of the Regional Directorate of State Forests in Katowice.
The edition of this issue was partly supported by the Council and Administration of Racibórz County, what is greatly appreciated.
This issue contains the papers presented as invited lectures, oral communications or posters during the conference. All papers were reviewed by the members of Editorial Board and by reviewers – specialists in particular topics.
