Abstract (in english)
   The article highlights the importance of palaeopedology for Quaternary research. It describes the differences in the study of fossil and subfossil soils as compared with the study of the recent ones. It emphasizes the objectives of study of these Quaternary soils - acquiring a picture on genesis, polygenesis, polycyclic and retrograde development etc., as results of the changing climatic and sedimentary processes and their feedback in stratigraphy. In the article palaeopedology is considered to be an integral part of the complex research of Quaternary sediments. Prof. Libuše Smolíková DSc, has been a longtime representative of this scientific discipline in our country and has recently terminated her work at Charles University after reaching her retirement age. It is sad that despite her effortr, this prominent specialist on the European scale has no follower. In her field of study she published 170 papers, the most significant ones being enclosed in the text of the article
