On account of its transitional phytogeographical position on the southern edge of the Alps, more or less strong influence of the sub-Mediterranean climate, variegated geological composition and diversified surface, the Soča Valley has a very rich flora and vegetation. The vegetation of this region has been studied for many centuries resulting in rich data available; however, these data have not been systematically assembled, databased and interpreted. A large portion of the available information has been collected through our systematic research since 1996 when the Regional research unit of the Jovan Hadži Institute of Biology of ZRC SAZU (Center of Scientific Research at the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts) in Tolmin was established. The results of foral mapping (vascular plants) following the Central-European method in about 55 quadrants of the Soča Valley will be collected in the Atlas of Flora, which will be accompanied with introduction and commentary. The results of our vegetation research conducted so far will be summed up in the maps of plant communities (in the scale of 1: 25.000), which will also be provided with a suitable commentary. Atlas of Flora and vegetation maps, both with commentary will be important tools in nature conservation and space management in the Soča Valley. They will be available to biologists, agronomists, foresters, landscape architects etc., and will provide a basis for protection of rare and endangered species and their habitats. Based on the faunistic (Mollusca, Araneae, Coleoptera, Lepidoptera), floristic and vegetational data from this study in selected Natura 2000 sites we will present areas of special biotic value with unusually high numbers of endangered species and communities, provide nature conservation guidelines for the selected species/communities/areas and recommendations for the actions, methods and timeframe for monitoring the selected species. At the Biological Institute ZRC SAZU we developed the FloVegSi (Fauna, Flora, Vegetation and Paleovegetation of Slovenia) database and application, which will enable us to systematically organize and present in corresponding synthetic publications our existent knowledge of the flora and vegetation of the Soča Valley (Posočje).
