Dita Mervartová


Project management assistant




The action conservational group “JARO” (the original historical name was “JAroměřští ROpáci”) established in 1985, consists nowadays of several basic organizations of the Czech Union of Nature Conservation and is involved in nature conservation through a variety of activities. We have begun to take care of valuable natural areas and we have been continuously taking care of some of these sites for over 30 years.


Dita Mervartová studied at Mendel University and then at the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague. Her main research interests were agroforestry and ethnobotany in the tropics and subtropics. Particularly, the conversion of coca plantations to the agroforestry system of cocoa and the genetic diversity of the local palm Mauritia flexuosa became the key topics of her studies. Afterwards, she worked in the beautiful environment of the tropical greenhouse Fata Morgana in the Botanical Garden Prague. Nowadays, Dita is part of the group JARO and is involved in interesting conservation activities.
