Abstract

History of Studies on Dinaric Karst, Using the Example of Popovo Polje (Towards a holistic interpretation of karst, using karstology, history of the environment and cultural landscapes) This text is the result of analyses of knowledge, use and markings of a prominent karst area, based primarily on the available references and other written sources. These three types of approach are substantively connected with three scientific areas: knowledge with natural sciences, use with technical disciplines, and markings with social studies and humanities. Natural sciences are emphasized in the physical geo-studies, which first appear in Popovo Polje in late 19th century, along with karstology. Until mid-20th century, the use was mainly through traditional means, and the dominant activities remained traditional until the last third of the century. Modernisation resulted in de-farming, vast de-population and far-reaching ecological damage. Marking maintained its traditional elements even longer, deeply rooted on mythological cultural structures. However unique, they resulted in an even stronger division of space, caused by political modernisation. Cultural history treated this naturally unique space – observed as Popovo Polje on the basic level, and as Dinaric Karst in the widest sense – as parts of different societal units, giving it different historical roles and different identities. Until the very end of the 20th century, the dominant use and marking of this space absorbed no messages of excellence emitted by karstology. At the end of the period, karstology was defined as a complex holistic science (Panoš 1995), but the scientific practice of holism was kept within the boundaries of inter-disciplinary geo-scientific natural science, and ethical practices were periodically defined by ethnic boundaries. An important element of the solution lies in the launching of complex studies of the area, with holistic karstology in the lead, in light of the nature of the landscape, accompanied by dissemination of such knowledge through education systems and the media. Key words: Popovo Polje, Dinaric Karst, karstology, subterranean flora biodiversity hotspot, holism, environmental history, traditional farming, modernisation, de-farming, cultural landscape, stone desert, land of the graves.
