Centre for Cartography of Fauna and Flora
Center za kartografijo favne in flore (CKFF) is a non-profit institute founded in 1996. The main aim of the
CKFF is to collect, organize and disseminate data and information about occurrence of plant and animal
species in Slovenia. It maintains possibly the largest biodiversity database in Slovenia, currently with more
than 1.700.000 records. The relational database is the product of the CKFF knowledge and is wholly
maintained by CKFF. Through web application Bioportal.si (developed and designed by CKFF) the data
(mainly the images) are accessible to the broader audience.
CKFF is working on surveys of flora, fauna and habitat types for Nature Conservation and Spatial Planning
purposes. CKFF employs some of leading Slovenian specialists for amphibians, dragonflies, butterflies,
freshwater fish, crayfish and bats. It also offers consultancy, GIS support and web programming for various
natural science and nature conservation projects.
