|I was born in 1943 in Ljubljana, Slovenia EC. I have graduated in electronic engineering and my PhD is in bio-mechanical engineering at University in Ljubljana. I had researched in the field of biocybernetics for 15 years before I switched to geophysics. Working on large seismological projects I've traveled more than 40 countries on five continents. Nature's beauty, particularly of plant life, has always been my love and admiration. I am retired and presently live in a small town Bovec situated in the heart of Julian Alps, northwest Slovenia. My other interests are music, books, mountaineering, skiing, white water canoeing and photography. I am deeply indebted to several people who have been unselfish sources of knowledge about nature for me, helping me by identifying species on my photos and led me to or instruct me about stands of rare and interesting plants, which I would never be able to find by myself. I wish to express special gratitude to dr. Igor Dakskobler, dr. Nejc Jogan, dr. Branko Vreš, Mr. Denise Waterbury, prof.dr. Tone Wraber (botany), Mr. Branko Dolinar (Orchids), prof.dr. Ronald Lanner (USA conifers), Mr. Gregor Podgornik, Mr. Antom Poler, Mr. Bojan Rot (Fungi) and dr. Bojan Zadravc (Lepidoptera).|
|Special interests: Plant world of west Slovenia and surrounding regions from north Adriatic Sea to Julian Alps - a small region, but with exceptionally rich mixture of alpine, submediterranean and Dinaric elements.|
