Daniel Rojšek from the Institute of RS for Nature Conservation informed us that the life of the geographer, speleologist and retired professor of the Department for Geography on the Ljubljana Faculty of Arts and regular member of the Slovenian Academy of Science and Art, akad. prof. dr. Ivan Gams, has ended. His most important contribution in the Slovenian nature protection field was his opinion to enlist the Škocjan Cave System on the UNESCO World Heritage list. He played a vital part in the enlistment of the Škocjan Kras on the List and the preparation of the required enlistment material. It is with profound gratitude that we express sincere condolences to his family.
