Species diversity patterns and factors shaping the spatial distribution of cave dwelling invertebrates in Postojna Cave

In 2019, a new eLTER Transnational and Remote Access mobility was offered by the Karst Research Institute ZRC SAZU, hosting two Romanian researchers, Dr. Ioana Nae and Dr. Augustin Nae from the “Emil Racovita” Speleological Institute Bucharest. During a 12 days research visit concentrated on two eLTER sites (the Postojna-Planina Cave System and Škocjan Caves), offering opportunity for extensive field trips and field works related to the rich subterranean biodiversity and its karst habitat from the Slovenian Classical Karst. The mobility offered also the opportunity to establish many contacts with Slovenian karstologists, spelobiologists and other experts from karstological research field.
