  • Description: Both the study of landscape types and investigations of the interactions between landscape factors have a long tradition in Hungarian landscape geography. Major achievements in landscape synthesis were the two-volume Inventory of microregions in Hungary. In the various schools of landscape geography fundamental research is directed at investigations of landscape pattern, landscape sensitivity, geo-ecological mapping and urban ecology. The major trends in applied research are the optimisation of the exploitation of resources, evaluation of hazards related to land use types, including flood hazard, practical issues of landscape rehabilitation. Historical landscape development is also a common research topic. In Hungarian higher education landscape research is deeply rooted in the geography departments at the universities of Debrecen and Szeged and recently established at Budapest and Pécs. Collaboration with experts both home and abroad and also between disciplines is gradually developing. It is more and more common that scientific results find the way to practical utilisation.
