ABSTRACT An analysis of the importance of Carnivores for the forests and viceversa is realised.
Their capacity for spreading seeds, their function as controllers of lhe species, which are diminishing
the regenerational capacity of the forest and their funclion as predators, are dealt
with. The importance of forests and riverbank thickets are emphasised, as are subalpine forests,
pyrenean and Cantabrian highlands and the Mediterranean forest. Furthermore, the
role of forest management with regard to the most common forest species (Pine Marten
and Genet), which possess a bioindicatory character of the maturity of the forest are studied.
The feeding, reproductory and habitat selection strategies of the Stone Marten, the
Pine Marten, the Badger, the Genet and the Wild Cat are presented and the competence
relationship between Pine Marten-Stone Marten and between Stone Marten-Genet is
discussed.
