Abstract (in english)
   From the Ochozská Cave the samples from the two profiles were studied. The lower parts of the profiles contained representants of the heliophilous cold steppes (Helianthemus, Thalictrum, Selaginella selaginoides, Ephedra), cold resistent wood plants (Pinus, Betula, Salix) and hydrophilous plants and alges (Cyperaceae, Botryococcus, Pediastrum). These belong most likely to the one cold phase of the Late Glacial. In the upper part of the profiles high amounts of the gemus Tilia and of the family Polypodiaceae were found. This accumulation was probably caused by special conditions during the sedimentation and it is probably of the Early Holocene age. From the Šošůvka Cave individual samples were studied. They contained above all the steppe elements (Thalictrum, Galium, Centaurea, Asteraceae, Ranunculaceae, Daucaceae, Poaceas) and a small amount of the trees pollen (Pinus silvestris, P. cembra, Betula, Tilia, Alnus).
   Some samples contain cold elements (Selaginella selaginoides, Botrychium), other warmer ones (Teucrium, Scabiosa). Their age are still not determined. The sediments from the Kůlna cave are dated archeologically. Their palynospectra are similar to the inner part of the Šošůvka cave and they may be used for comparison with the above mentioned ones
