Nejc presented his Diploma work

In September, Nejc has accomplished his diploma work “Taxonomic analysis of bullhead (Cottus sp.) in Slovenia with application of molecular methods” and presented it at the Department of Biology, University of Ljubljana.

Diploma highlights: •mtDNA analysis revealed the distinctness of C. metae and supports its classification into a new species •considerable phylogeographic polymorphism was found in the Western Balkans possibly giving rise to new species •two major colonization waves of bullhead to Europe presumably started in the Western Balkans

During his diploma stage, Nejc was brought face to face with the concept of minimalism.
