Kuchař K 1961: Early maps of Bohemia
This paper presents the results of a study on the estimation of drought impact on fluctuation yield cereal crops in Central Bohemia. Historical climate and crop yields data for the period of 47 years (1961–2007) have been integrated into an agrometeorological database. The objective of this paper was to determine the drought impact on yield of winter and spring cereals crops on an example for the Central Bohemian region. According to crops variability models the most of low yielding years (from 3 to 5 cases) were noticed at the beginning of the 1960s and 1970s, reaching their highest points in the decade of 1991–2000 (from 3 and 8 cases). In the case of the most serious crop failures in grain production in the Central Bohemian region (1964, 1976, 2000, 2003), droughts were responsible. In agreement with the developed model, the drought impact was associated with cereals detrended yield being smaller than y
. A year has the following types of drought impact: yield detrended of −05
is a low drought effect; −
is a middle drought effect and y
means a high drought effect.
A new Catholic aristocracy of the Thirty Years War initiated the rise of new local cultural centres possessing strong political and economic autonomy, which reflected the absolutist status of their rulers. The foreign noble soldiers formed an entirely new group of donators at this time. The traditional Bohemian nobility was active in administrative offices and focused on building spectacular city palaces in political centres [Vienna, Prague]. The officers of the Imperial army created private local residences as centres of their small regional domain, often situated in the border zone of the country. Research has not yet paid much attention to the patronage of these war conquistadors, with the exceptions of the generals Albrecht of Wallenstein and Rombaldo Collalto. Wallenstein's officers and his army rivals brought to Bohemia not just an aggressive policy but also proto-Baroque style in architecture and a new cultural orientation.
In the paper the overview of the content and methodological background of the recently published and currently prepared volumes of Ethnological atlas of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia is given. The main aim of the paper is to show, how written sources from the early modern period could help with the preparation of ethnological maps in the country, where field research of the folk culture hardly can be done at present. Secondly the very successful application of GIS (geographic information system) in the ethnological research is stressed. The very best example of fruitful utilization of both the mentioned aspects is the 5th volume of the Ethnological atlas of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, which deals with spatial differentiation of the Jewish settlements and professions in Bohemia.1

To estimate the status of selenium in seniors of the South Bohemia region, Czech Republic, 481 serum samples from seniors
living in 17 Asylum Houses for seniors in the age between 60 and 99 years were obtained. Samples were analyzed by instrumental
neutron activation analysis with concurrent analysis of 4 reference materials for quality assurance. Average concentration
of serum Se, arithmetic means in individual Asylum Houses, frequency distribution of serum Se concentrations as well as five
years running monitoring of serum Se concentrations of one group of seniors proved selenium deficiency of the elderly population
of the region South Bohemia.
The present paper focuses on the use of old maps and written sources in analyses of the landscape structure and husbandry in the first half of the 19th century. The studied area is situated in the Boletice Military Area in Southern Bohemia (southwest of the Czech Republic). Attention was paid in particular to the area of the former villages of Ondřejov and Chlumany. The maps of the First and the Second Military Surveys, Stable Cadastre, and forestry maps were used for the analysis, together with selected written sources. The results show that ingenious agriculture including mowing, grazing of a notable number of cattle, ploughing and forestry was once characteristic in the area. This paper presents especially the woodland structure in the area and some inconsistencies that were found on the old maps.
