Abstract

Landscape typologies provide their users with a spatial framework, which could be used for management, assessment of landscape changes and monitoring of biodiversity or natural processes. The aim of this article is to distinguish and compare landscape types across the largest natural area within Central Europe. Cluster analysis based on physical-geographical data was used to differentiate particular types of environmental conditions. The results are suitable for comparing both national parks and their management.
