Přemysl Bobek studied Biology at the Charles University in Prague, where he finishing his PhD study in Botany. His main research interest is reconstruction of long-term fire disturbance dynamics in forest ecosystems, detection of fire-induced vegetation changes and identification of driving forces on the past fire regimes. He is specifically interested in applying charcoal analysis on sedimentary and soil paleoarchives in order to determine holocene fire regimes i.e. past fire frequency, intensity and spatial patterns. The results provide better understanding of fire-vegetation-climate interactions and assessing the role of anthropogenic influences. This knowledge also serves as a baseline for predicting future fire regimes under the ongoing climate change. He also focuses on other areas such as applying spatially explicit modeling approaches in palaeoecology.
