Sažetak
Sustainable development is defined as ecologically acceptable long-term management of all resources for the benefit of the population and the environment. Sustainable development is also a long-term planning and systematic exploitation of these resources, with minimal "losses" that are harmful to flora and fauna. One of the essential components of sustainable development is the conservation of biological diversity that abounds in the area of the eastern Adriatic coast. In the region of Dalmatia, 61 varieties of olives are currently known, around 130 varieties of various fruits, 82 varieties of grapes and 94 varieties of spices and aromatic herbs. The extent of this biological diversity is a consequence of the large number of climate, geographical, social and cultural conditions that prevail in this area. Turbulent historical upheavals (wars, socio-economic and political relations, policy changes, etc.) during the last century in this region have resulted in significant changes in rural areas (population migration from rural to urban areas, declining agricultural production, demographic changes in the country, aging population, etc.). Simultaneously with these changes has been the process of introduction of new technologies in agricultural production (mechanization of agriculture, manufacturing and production in the monoculture of genetically modified crops). The result of these changes and events is the "erosion" of traditionally bred varieties and breeds. According to our research, one variety of olive has completely disappeared, and 16 are critically endangered. For traditional varieties of fruits, 14 of them have no data and 31 species are critically endangered. The agricultural biodiversity of Dalmatia is not well studied, preserved, protected or promoted. Therefore, it is not used in the selection, or recognized as economically important, in creating original and distinctive high-value agricultural products, which have great tourist potential and are an important tool for preserving the existing Dalmatian environment. This work will show the changes in the rural areas of Dalmatia and its impact on the preservation of traditional varieties of fruit and olive trees.
