The Symposium is jointly organized by the team of University of Ljubljana (SubBioLab, Department of Biology, Biotechnical Faculty) and Notranjska Museum Postojna. It will be held on 18th and 19th of October 2019 in Postojna, Slovenia.
Postojna is considered as “the cradle of speleobiology”. It is a place where the whole story of uncovering the specialized, cave-adapted life forms begun following to the discovery of the blind cave beetle Leptodirus hochenwartii in 1832.
Now, almost 200 years later, we try to follow the idea set on the 1st Dinaric Symposium in Zagreb, to establish and deepen the networks between scientists and amateurs, interested in rich subterranean biodiversity of the Dinaric Karst. This includes a wide array of topics, related to subterranean world - systematics, biogeography, evolution, ecology, biodiversity, conservation, etc.
Please stay tuned for more information on the symposium, which will be posted on this website.
