Terrestrial isopods were studied in the Dubravica peat bog and surrounding forest in the northwestern Croatia. Sampling was conducted using pitfall traps over a two year period. Studied peat bog has a history of drastically decrease in area during the last five decades mainly due to the process of natural succession and changes in the water level. A total(More)
Peatlands in Croatia are rare, small in size and isolated habitats. Due to the abandonment of traditional land-management practices, and particularly to the progressive vegetation succession, they are critically endangered. Caddisfl y faunistics and ecology of peatlands in Croatia have never been studied. A total of seven caddisfl y taxa were collected in(More)
Vegetation succession, drainage, and climate change are causes of peatland habitat loss in the Western Balkans. Ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) are one of the most ecologically important invertebrate taxa in terrestrial ecosystems. To explore whether, and to what extent, fen ant communities are specialized, we sampled an alkaline fen, adjacent habitats(More)
Basic slag, used in this study as a potential source of certain nutrients, is a byproduct of the production of steel in electric arc furnace (EAF). A pot experiment with two nutrient-poor substrates was conducted to investigate to compare the effect of EAF steel slag and fertilizers NPK + F e on growth and availability of specific nutrients to maize.(More)

This paper presents the distribution of the terrestrial isopod Hyloniscus adonis (Verhoeff, 1927) in croatia. It was recorded for the first time at the edge of Dubravica peat bog and the adjacent forest. Additionally, it was collected at the edges of Đon močvar peat bog.

The morphometric analyses and genetic variability assessed by RAPD markers have been used to analyse relations among six Serapias taxa from Croatia (S. istriaca, S. pulae originally described as hybrid, S. ionica, S. vomeracea, S. lingua and S. cordigera). S. istriaca distributed in southern Istria and the island of Lošinj and S. pulae stenoendemic taxon(More)

Following a change in 1997 of the boundaries of Krka National Park, comprehensive floristic field mapping of the new, North-East area of the park using basic MTB 1/64 field units was conducted(More)
