  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • Institute of Botany of the Czech Academy of Sciences

    The Institute of Botany is one of the research institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Research carried out here deals with plants and fungi at organismal, population, community and ecosystem levels. Currently the Institute covers a broad spectrum of botanical disciplines, such as systematics and evolution, population biology and ecology, vegetation science and vegetation mapping, and palaeoecology. The institute also maintains the Průhonice Park with extensive collections of native and introduced plants.

  • Electronic supplementary material

    Electronic supplementary material accompanying articles published before 2008 is not provided via SpringerLink; however, it is available from the website of the Institute of Botany of the Czech Academy of Science (www.ibot.cas.cz/folia).
