Jitka Horáčková
Trained as malacologist and botanist who is experienced in molluscan ecology, botany and paleomalacology. She manages a large database of Holocene molluscs of Czech and Slovak Republics. She has capacity to process palaeomalacological samples, work in field and contribute to palaeoecological synthesis and result dissemination.
