The project aims at documenting and explaining the pattern in species richness along an elevational gradient from the seashore to the peak of Mt. Snežnik (1796 m a.s.l.). Pattern will be described and confronted with the theories about the spatial distribution of biodiversity. Particular attention will be paid on the universality of the humped curve as a response of species richness to an increased altitude. The transect could serve as a standpoint in further long term biodiversity monitoring in an area of expected rapid changes in species composition as a respond to climatic changes.
