Among the results of research activities which have a potential influence on development of Slovenia are the most important projects we made for known end-users. Most of the projects were connected with activities and results we get within the program. Some the most important results of research program and their application for development of Slovenia are: Organization of round-table on sanitation and enlargement of HE power-plant Moste - discussion was focused on effects of planned activities on water quality and consequences for aquatic organisms. Broadcast on TV Slovenia on negative effects of fish introduction in high-mountain lakes - we stress the negative consequences of introduction of non-native species (fish) in high-mountain lakes and especially effects on biota ad water quality there. We want to focus public attention on consequences of such activities which have negative effects not only in tourism but also in public water supply. Mountain areas contribute important amount of drinking water for local people and pollution of water can have unpredictable effects. Water tracing experiments between some high-mountain lakes - we found that hydrologic connections between the lakes are weak and thus each lake acts as relatively isolated hydrological unit. Water from each lake collects in a common water-flow deep in karst massif. These knowledge has an important contribution not only to nature protection but also to protection of sources of water supply. Book "High-mountain lakes in the eastern part of the Julian Alps" - is one of a few books presenting high-mountain lakes' ecosystem in a complex way not only in Slovenia but also in Europe. The book is not solely a presentation of the results of research program. It could be used also as a source of information for design-makers who have to prepare plans on development and activities within the catchment of the lakes. They can get information, which activities are harmful for the lakes and which are not. Research in the field of fauna and taxonomy - results of those research have no direct impact on development of Slovenia but it is important from a standpoint of nature conservation. Records of many new species, most of them being endemic, in some remote and not yet well known locations (caves, intermittent lakes) are a strong argument to start activities to declare such locations as hot-spot areas and/or so called "loci typici" - to conduct biodiversity conservation. Information of such a kind could be used as a promotion in eco-tourism which will help Slovenia to get better competitive position not only in Europe but also in the rest of the world. Research on nesting biology of whinchat (Saxicola rubetra) - research was performed in the area south of Ljubljana (Ljubljansko barje), which is the most important nesting area of the whinchat in Slovenia. The preferred nesting sites of the species are wet meadows which are mowed in spring. The first haymaking is in a conflict with nesting period of the whinchat when a lot of nests could be destroyed. We made a model to predict effects of different regimes of mowing on the species. The results will be used in proposal for sustainable management of Ljubljsko barje which is declared as protected area.
