The influence of hydromorphological characteristics of Slovenian rivers on benthic invertebrate assemblages
In doctoral dissertation the linkage between hydromorphological variables of various levels and benthic invertebrate assemblages in Slovenian rivers was investigated. Within our research we published our findings in three scientific articles. The results are a good framework for more sustainable and cost-effective management of lotic ecosystems.

OSTALE DOMAČE REFERENCE
Expert bases for determining the priorities of the Republic of Slovenia in the field of environment and efficient use of resources and identification of the themes that are most suitable for co-financing from the LIFE program
In the framework of the project task, we prepared guidelines on the thematic priorities from the Multi-annual LIFE work program for the period 2014–2017 in the priority area Environment and efficient use of resources, and Environmental management and information for Lot 1: water, including the marine environment. The thematic priorities...
Remote sensing of large river hydromorphological characteristics and impact assessment on biotic communities
The project’s aim is to identify and compare impacts of different stressors (hydromorphological alterations, pollution, land use), acting on different spatial scales (reach, segment, catchment), on benthic macroinvertebrate and fish communities in Slovenian large rivers, as well as to analyse the comparability between field survey and remote sensing based hydromorphological...
In this project our task is to monitor the impact of hydropower plant operation on river Soča ecological status/potential, specifically on biological quality elements, hydrological, and physico-chemical quality elements according to the current legislation.
