A typology of natural landscapes of Central Europe
Eliška Fňukalová, Dušan Romportl
published online: 20. 11. 2014
Landscape classification of Central Europe was carried out in order to define the spatial framework of environmentally homogeneous typological units. The output of such a classification would be used for further assessment of ecosystem services within the focus region. Classification was based on the cluster analysis of principal components, derived from a set of abiotic data – climatic and terrain variables and a soil database. Seven specific landscape types were defined within Central Europe. Regional distribution and environmental characteristics of particular units are described.
