The research programme of the research group is interdisciplinary. It comprises investigations of the biological and environmental basis of plant production, plant processing and land use. The core of the research programme deals with soil-plant- atmosphere relations and with structures, functions and relations connected with these relations in the specific environmental and productional circumstances of Slovenia, viewed also from European and wider standpoints. Research in the field of applied botany and genetics deals with the structure and function of agricultural plants (crop, fruit, pasture & meadow, medicinal & aromatic and weed plant species) at the morphological, anatomical, ecophysiological, genetic and molecular level in connection with agricultural technologies, environmental stresses (climate change, air , water and soil pollution), aims of environmental conservation, production of healthy food and conservation of biotic diversity in ecosystems. Research in the field of agroclimatology comprises dynamic modelling of plant development and growth, phenological observations and analyses, formation of climate change scenarios and determination of the consequences of climate change on agroecosystems, statistical modelling and spatial interpolations. Research in the field of soil sciences and environmental conservation deals with physical, chemical and biological processes in soils, soil use and conservation, soil fertility and land use influenced by natural processes, agricultural technologies, urbanisation and pollution from different sources; investigations of processes in soils as a consequence of pollution help in making decisions about future land use, remediation of soils, determination of food quality and formation of a database for a soil information system. The research on pedosequence on shallow brown soils on gravel and sands as one of the most sensitive agroecosystems in Slovenia deals with effects of these soils on cyclic appearance of droughts and floods, causing leaching of nutrients and other compounds from the rhizosphere to groundwater. Reserch of water in agriculture is one of the major issues in sustainable plant and animal production, especially considering a renewable use strategy and limited quantitiy of water, other users, forthcoming climate change and pollution of water from agriculture. Research in the field of scientometry, information science and documentation deals with the characteristic structure of scientific and professional information resources, with regard to the contents and layout of the documents.
Significance for science
The scientific relevance of the work and results of the research programme group is that the group represents the basic Slovenian research group which investigates the environment in connection with changes in land use, especially in agriculture and urban areas, as well with other antropogenic environmental pollutions, connected with agricultural technologies, industry, traffic and other man activities , conencted also to environmental conservation and preserving of biodiversity. In the areas of agrometeorology, soil science and plants & vegetation in terrestrial ecosystems the research programme group contributes major part of investigation carried out in Slovenia and is well connected with similar groups in Europe. Part of the research programme group is accupied with investigations and activities in informatics in biotechnique and also with basic research in genetics, agricultural technologies connected with sustainable land use in healthy food production, production of functional food, medicinal and aromatic plants in the circumstances of global climate change and changes in agricultural technologies and with them linked processes.
Significance for the country
The significance of investigations and work done within the research programe P4-85 "Applied botany, Genetics and Ecology" is to support sustainable development of Slovenia in agriculture, forestry and other activities connected to suistainable land use. In this respects the research carried out by the programme group is important for development of sustainable agricultural technologies, environmental protection and conservation of biodiversity. Investigations of the research programme are also basis for the maintenance and development of higher schooling in these areas in Slovernia, at the graduste and postgraduate level. All stated above is already confirmed by the cited achievements of the programme group under the item 1 in this report where the research outputs of the research programe are more detaily given for the areas of soil science na d environmental protection, agrometeorology, melioration and management of agricultural land, genetics, applied botany, physiology and ecology of plants, special technologies in agriculture (production of functional food, medicinal and aromatic plants) and informatics in biotechnique.
