The Constitutional Transformation and a Threat of the Environment in Poland


The article concerns a problem of the quantitative seizure of a threat to natural environment. Applied taxonomic method – leading to so called synthetic index of threat and basing on earlier tests, showed the large usefulness for analyses in time and space. Additionally, it was undertaken analysis of connections with economic-political situation in Poland as a result of the constitutional transformation after 1989. It was found that the intensity of anthropic pressure had clearly decreased, but this does not have the statistical relationship with the variable size of inputs for the envi-ronment protection.
