Role and evaluation of settlements on karst in Slovenia
Drago Kladnik - (27/1,1998)
The article discusses demographic, social, economic and infrastructural indicators of Slovenian settlements. It focuses on reciprocal comparison of different types of settlements on karstic land, and on their comparison to other settlements that are also divided into characteristic types. The main criterion for their enlistment as karstic is not their position on carbonate minerals but the stony surface and the minute karstic dissection of the land in individual settlements that enables machine cultivation and adaptation of the landownership structure to modern agro-technical principles.
