Application of methodologyfor environmental vulnerability studies of two landscape- formingcomponents, soils and natural vegetation, is presented. Evaluation ofenvironmental vulnerability from the view of particular landscape-formingcomponent can be adjusted to different spatial levels: smallerlandscape-ecological units or larger, but still rather homogeneouslandscape-ecological types. With sufficient data it is possible quiteprecisely to evaluate environmental vulnerability on the level of landscapeunits. On the level of landscape-ecological types the generalisation ismuch more significant. Despite this the environmental vulnerability studiesgive usoverview over the state of the environment and the impact of humanpressures.
