    Abstract

    Ecohydrological systems analysis considers the soil to be the result of the interaction between regional hydrological processes and soil-forming rocks. Regional hydrological factors determine the development of the ecosystem, affecting the cycle of nutrients. Ecological and hydrological criteria are used for different mapped features of land at the level of physiotopes in order to model occurring processes. Dynamic models are also used to evaluate the change in the ecological quality of land and the response of surface vegetation to the regulation of the water regime. Recommended in the practice of ecological land evaluation are the so-called certificates of objects, which are based on data obtained from model calculations.
