Dru?boslovne Razprave , 2012,
Abstract: The authors present an analysis of food practices based on the research project Media consumption, class and cultural stratification . A cluster analysis of data obtained from a random sample of the adult population in Ljubljana and Maribor, the two biggest cities in Slovenia, revealed four food cultures: Aspiring traditionalists (27% of the sample), Struggling traditionalists (32%), Health conscious and socially responsible hedonists (29%) and Traditionalists, adapted to urban trends (12%). The findings support previous research which recognises significant associations between food practices, socio-demographic factors (particularly education), values and cultural consumption. The data show that food practices in Ljubljana and Maribor are still primarily traditionalistic, as are several other practices of everyday life.
The new tram in Ljubljana – excuse me, does it go to Maribor?  [PDF]

Urbani Izziv , 2002,
Abstract: Constantly increasing motorisation in Ljubljana demands serious consideration about future traffic management in the city and region. The reintroduction of the tram system that would connect the wider area as a tram-train system and integrate with other transport modes is one of the possible solutions. Without changes in present travel habits it isn’t feasible therefore public participation in all phases is of key importance. Simultaneous introduction of public spaces, enabled by the physical introduction of the system, can significantly add to the (re)designed city image that is becoming an extremely important advantage in competition between cities.
The changing appearance of single-family house settlements in Slovenia: Comparative analysis of settlements in Ljubljana, Maribor, and Novo mesto  [PDF]

Urbani Izziv , 2008,
Abstract: The design, representation, size, and organization of open spaces in residential areas of single-family houses has undergone significant change in the last forty years. In order to identify trends and changes in the construction of settlements of single-family houses, a comparative analysis of selected settlements in Ljubljana, Maribor, and Novo mesto was performed. It was determined that there has been a sharp reduction in open spaces, including planted and green areas, in these kinds of settlements. The shortage of land and the increased use of parcels with high density building projects have discouraged the development of planted areas along streets and the creation of gardens and common areas intended for socializing, playing, and recreation. The reduction of residential gardens and the increased elevation of buildings often results in the unsuitable physical appearance of new settlements as well as in the impoverished quality of life, an inevitable consequence of scarce greenery and common areas. Despite the fact that the use of open space is dependant on social conditions during various time periods, certain parameters that determine the quality of living space remain constant. Because of this, it has become increasingly urgent to dedicate thought to the planning of residential areas that gives a larger proportion of their area to open spaces and seeks a more appropriate balance between the market logic of urbanization and certain proscribed urban standards.

Urbani Izziv , 2007,
Abstract: The article gives an overview of key aspect of housing in Municipality of Ljubljana. The characteristics of households, of housing and their relation influence the housing situation in the city. Characteristic of housing refer mainly to quality of the dwellings, affordability and correspondence to the wishes of the inhabitants. The second important dimensions are households and their characteristics. In Europe and Slovenia increase in number of household can be observed, which in turn are becoming smaller. The housing policy has a role in establishing a balance between households and housing, i.e. ensuring that housing corresponds to the needs of individual households and to their number. For achieving this, knowledge and appropriate data are of vital importance. In the article we present the results of the Housing survey 2005. We observe housing conditions in a comparative perspective (Ljubljana in comparison to Maribor, Slovenia and selected European cities) and according to three dimensions: housing fund, households and housing conditions.

Uro? Lobnik
Urbani Izziv , 1999,
Abstract: The Maribor Town plan project began in 1995. The elaborate analytical part was directed into recognising and establishing key problems in the town and guidelines for their solution. Expert guidelines were elaborated and presented as conceptual ideas, easily understood by professionals and lay-people. The concept of the master plan or town plan as such is based on the division and connection of the four parts of the town. In the concluding remarks certain ideas on improving the planning system are presented.

When can splits be drawn in the plane?  [PDF]
Monika Balvo?iūt?,David Bryant,Andreas Spillner
Quantitative Biology , 2015,
Abstract: Split networks are a popular tool for the analysis and visualization of complex evolutionary histories. Every collection of splits (bipartitions) of a finite set can be represented by a split network. Here we characterize which collection of splits can be represented using a planar split network. Our main theorem links these collections of splits with oriented matroids and arrangements of lines separating points in the plane. As a consequence of our main theorem, we establish a particularly simple characterization of maximal collections of these splits.

Journal for Geography , 2011,
Abstract: The year 2011 marks the 50th years from establishment of the Academy of Education in Maribor. One of its successors is also Faculty of Arts, where is conducted the study of geography. The paper discusses the development of the Department of Geography and the study of geography in Maribor, which in fifty years passed through the various developmental periods: in the terms of organization, courses, research and human resources. The basic mission of the department, (training of personnel for teaching geography in primary and secondary schools) was conducted through using a variety of courses. In 1985 the Academy changed to Faculty of Education. With the establishment of the Faculty of Arts in 2006 the Department of Geography became part of it. The transition to new study programs, which have been prepared in accordance with the Bologna declaration, brought a series of innovations, as well as challenges; both for teachers and students.
Ljubljana – phases of urban development
Aleksander Jako?
Urbani Izziv , 2006,
Abstract: At the end of the Second World War there were approximately 100.000 people living in the compact part of Ljubljana. A period of rapid population development ensued (urbanisation) because of immigration from other parts of Slovenia and later from various regions of the former Yugoslav Republics. This period is marked by numerous new housing estates and early stagnation of the old city core. A period ob sub-urbanisation followed and city expansion along the main roads, interspersed with poor quality building and illegal development. Costly renewal of old buildings, diminished construction of housing estates and high prices of building land triggered the flight of city dwellers (de-urbanisation) and caused non-urban development in neighbouring municipalities (secondary urbanisation). By rehabilitation of the old city centre and attempts at revitalisation Ljubljana is trying re-urbanise itself. The flight of the younger population, caused by limited offer of housing, still remains the main problem that furthermore causes increased volumes of daily commuting and congestion in the city centre caused by parked vehicles. The tally of increased population during the last decade to small neighbouring municipalities, caused by flight from Ljubljana, is 20.000, while the population of Ljubljana is decreasing. With its quarter of a million inhabitants, Ljubljana is the third smallest capital city of Europe (without the “pocket” states). The main issue in the neighbouring municipalities is expressively non-urban development, meaning that too much land is used and the utilities infrastructure threshold is not met. The present division of the Ljubljana metropolitan region truly calls for a Strategy of spatial development, at least on the level of the Ljubljana urban region.
Subrecent Movements near Ljubljana  [PDF]

Geologija , 2004,
Abstract: At the eastern margin of the Ljubljansko barje (Ljubljana moor) smaller faults can be seen along which part or the whole colluvial cover is displaced. The age of the colluvium is not determined therefore at the moment fault are treated as subrecent. Similar the same phenomenon was seen at the Postojna area.
