The Department deals with applied water research in a field of ecology and preservation/conservation biology focused on legislatively specially protected aquatic organisms (macrophytes, molluscs and other invertebrates) and management of protected areas. Other areas of research activities include ecology of springs and oligotrophic basins, processes of detritus emergence in flowing waters, relations between surface water and groundwater in terms of their physico-chemical and biological parameters, study of the aquatic environment of specially protected areas (SPAs) including Sites of Community Importance (SCI, in Czech “Evropsky významné lokality” (EVL)) with an emphasis on the Natura 2000 priority sites, the development of environmental technologies friendly to protected aquatic organisms with special demands, and the effects of anthropogenic acidification and recovery from acidification on chemistry and biota of mountain waters.
