The Academia publishing house recently released a rather unusual guidebook of Prague, titled “Divoká příroda Prahy” (Nature wilderness of Prague). “It offers a completely different perspective of the city, searching for nature that develops spontaneously, with limited human interference”, says geologist Radek Mikuláš, one of the authors.

The recently published book “Wild Nature of Prague and its Close Surroundings” is authored by geologist Radek Mikuláš and botanist J.A. Šturma. In this book, the authors explain that the “wild nature” develops rather spontaneously, regardless of human intentions. This may happen in the mountains as well as in an abandoned quarry, or on a slope afforested a hundred years ago. Such a slope in the Barrandov city district, vegetated by a wild forest, was visited by the authors, accompanied by – somewhat surprised – newsmen from the Czech Radio.

A prominent Czech geologist, Radek Mikuláš, set out to the popular Dinopark at Praha-Harfa altogether with reporters of the journal Respekt. We concluded that the exhibit corresponds to recent scientific knowledge, including proportions and coloration of the extinct reptiles. Read more on the fascination by dinosaurs in the article by Radek Mikuláš in Respekt No 32, 2011.
