International Scientific Symposium "Man and Karst", 11-14.10.2012, Bijakovići, Međugorje, Abstracts
Abstract:

International sscientific symposium “Man and Karst”, as it can be seen already from  the title, has a wide karstological conception. It, in line with the current development of  expertise includes karstology, seeks to expand its interests in the former physical geoscientific  and geotechnical, on cultural, economic, historical, and all other issues that are caused by  the fact that one occurring in soluble rocks.  Organizer is recommended that participants should specifically deal with the identity  of our karst: what is this the world recognized and here insufficiently known Dinaric karst?  What does it and how it is determined in geological, geomorphologic, hydrological,  biological and every natural sense, and what gives the social, cultural and touristic  recognition? Also, he reiterated the ongoing importance of protecting the karst environment,  and various aspects of the protection and sustainable development of karst.  The final profile of the Symposium was determined by the participants with their  professional and scientific interests, which are reflected in the submitted papers. Here we  have compiled their titles and abstracts, from which it is visible. Most, as it is expected, are  the themes of physical karstology, then from the karst biology, cultural landscape of karst  and, the most cheerful, the emergence of educational topics. But, the book of abstracts does  not include everythingng that is important for the Symposium: pleasure of mingling,  exchanging experience, site visits, regional and intergenerational bounding and promotion of  new young forces, which are the most important things of the Symposium that must be  personally experienced
