Significance for science
Our biodiversity research ecompassed taxonomic, phylogenetic, genetic, functional, interactive, spatial and temporal dimensions. To achieve our scientific objectives we employed interdisciplinary methods. Such integrative biological approach is novel anywhere, but particularly in Slovenian science. Mutual relations between the individual units of biodiversity are poorly understood, but all are crucial to the functioning of ecosystems; it is thus imperative to examine their interactions and understand their meaning. Our research was thus new to the global science and will play a role in the international development of a truely integrative methodology in researching biodiversity.
Significance for the country
Our research has both a local and global component. The biodiversity of the territory of Slovenia has been presumed to be among the highest globally, an assumption that was largely confirmed by our integrative research, which could further situate Slovenia among biodiversity and tourism hot spots. Our biological models allow specific predictions of how the habitats of species and higher taxa and entire ecosystems might change over the coming decades. These models are thus directly useful to society in the concept of sustainability and quality of socioeconomic development, as they can largely guide management strategies decisions, and decisions affecting implementation of legislation in nature conservation. Consequently, our integrative research enables the protection of biodiversity at different levels and thus maintainance of the rich natural and cultural heritage of Slovenia.
