Science Chat #11 | Energy of Rivers with Dušan Jelić

Dušan Jelić researches the animals that live in riparian ecosystems and their dependence and relation to the river. To oppose the view of hydropotential energy carried by a river, he gives us a view on the energy that lies within this important ecosystem. Dušan is PhD in reptile biology-ecology. He worked for 5 years in State Institute for Nature Protection as an expert for Amphibians and Reptiles and during this time he produced the second “Red book of Amphibians and Reptiles of Croatia” and worked as an expert in the designation of Natura2000 ecological network in Croatia.

During today’s science chat we also hear some findings of three Master students that conducted interdisciplinary, distant research along the Sava.
