The study and evaluation of landscape sensitivity of environment respectively different environmental components is the main topic of proposed research. Due to landscape diversity of Slovenia and exceptional natural differences inside small regions, elaboration of methodology for evaluation of self-cleaning capacities of typical ecosystems is a sort of scientific challenge. Many recent environmental researches showed, that water, air and soil (as basic natural resources) are the most important environmental components, which deserve - because of human impacts in the past and actual burdening - special attention. For our environment the differences between ecosystems are crucial, so our research will concentrate on the levels of different sensitivity of environmental components in different landscape types. The main aim of proposed research is preparation of methodology for evaluation of environmental sensitivity in different typical ecosystems (for example agrarian) with a stress on estimation of neutralization capacities of water, air and soil. Appropriateness of the methodology will be checked with case-study researches in different landscape units.
