Article
Full-text available
Forests host most terrestrial biodiversity and their sustainable management is crucial to halt biodiversity loss. Although scientific evidence indicates that sustainable forest management (SFM) should be assessed by monitoring multi-taxon biodiversity, most current SFM criteria and indicators account only for trees or consider indirect biodiversity...
Article
Full-text available
To secure the ecosystem services forests provide, it is important to understand how different management practices impact various components of these ecosystems. We aimed to uncover how silvicultural treatments affected the ground-dwelling spider communities during the first five years of a forest ecological experiment. In an oak-hornbeam forest st...
Article
Full-text available
Harmonization of timber production and forest conservation is a major challenge of modern silviculture. For the establishment of ecologically sustainable forest management, the management-related environmental drivers of multi-taxon biodiversity should be explored. Our study reveals those environmental variables related to tree species diversity an...
Article
Erdőökológiai kísérletünkben a vágásos és az örökerdő gazdálkodásban alkalmazott erdészeti beavatkozások aljnövényzetre gyakorolt kezdeti hatásait vizsgáltuk egy korábban vágásos üzemmódban művelt, egykorú gyertyános-kocsánytalan tölgyesben. A kísérletben kisméretű vágásterületeket, hagyásfacsoportokat, bontóvágással kezelt területeket, lékeket és...

Full-text available
There is a paradigm shift in silviculture towards the not just economically but also ecologically sustainable continuous cover forestry (CCF) methods. Their aims are to provide timber, to maintain buffered microclimate and biodiversity, and to meet social requirements simultaneously. However, the concept and the details of these techniques has to d...
Article
Full-text available
Stable below‐canopy microclimate of forests is essential for their biodiversity and ecosystem functionality. Forest management necessarily modifies the buffering capacity of woodlands. However, the specific effects of different forestry treatments on site conditions, the temporal recovery after the harvests and the reason of the contrasts between t...
Article
Full-text available
Ecological, economic, and social demands triggered a shift in the management of temperate deciduous forests from rotation forestry system towards more nature-based forest management techniques such as continuous cover forestry. However, there is insufficient knowledge on the regeneration success of different tree species especially oaks-within this...
Article
Full-text available
In recent decades, alternative management techniques integrating conservation concerns into industrial forestry have become increasingly widespread. In order to compare the effects of various management methods on forest site and biodiversity, a systematic forestry experiment was conducted in a managed, mature oak–hornbeam forest. The present work...
Article
Full-text available
As modern silviculture in natural forests is based on natural regeneration, finding the most important drivers of regeneration is crucial for forestry as well as conservation. We explored the relationship between numerous environmental and land use history variables and the species richness, cover and composition of the regeneration layer, and also...
Article
Full-text available
Abstract There are only few studies that explore the ecological consequences of forest management on several organism groups. We studied the short-term effects of four forestry treatments including preparation cutting, clear-cutting, retention tree group and gap-cutting in a temperate managed forest on the assemblage structure of understory plants,...
Article
Full-text available
Forest management alters forest site; however, information is still limited about how different silvicultural treatments modify abiotic conditions. We compared the effects of four treatments from three different forestry systems on forest microclimate, litter, and soil conditions. The clear-cutting, retention tree group, preparation cutting, and ga...

Full-text available
Background Forest management alters the forest site, however, information is still limited about how different silvicultural treatments modify these conditions. In the past decades, besides rotation forestry, new silvicultural systems were introduced, fulfilling the requirements of multipurpose forestry. In this study we investigated the short-term...

Article
Full-text available
The complex interactions between stand characteristics and forest site variables result in specific under story microclimate conditions, which are essential for many forest-dwelling organism groups. The main aim of our study was to evaluate the relative importance of stand structure variables and landscape elements that account for the microclimate...
Article
Light is one of the most important drivers of understory vegetation in forests, influencing the patterns of total cover as well as the abundance of individual species. Based on a multi-scale approach, the relationships between the amount and pattern of relative diffuse light and forest understory were studied in an old-growth, temperate mixed fores...
Article
Full-text available
Herbaceous understory vegetation is an important part of temperate forested ecosystems, the diversity and composition of which are strongly dependent on the conditions of the forest stand and the landscape. The aim of this study was to find the most important environmental drivers influencing understory herb layer species composition (explored with...
Article
Epiphytic bryophytes and lichens are an important component of the endangered forest biota in temperate forests, their diversity and composition patterns being regulated by tree, stand and landscape scale factors. The aim of this study is to improve ecological understanding of such factors in managed coniferous-deciduous mixed forests of Hungary in...

Article
The effect of management related factors on species richness of epiphytic bryophytes and lichens was studied in managed deciduous-coniferous mixed forests in Western-Hungary. At the stand level, the potential explanatory variables were tree species composition, stand structure, microclimate and light conditions, landscape and historical variables;...
Article
Full-text available
The effect of light on different understory plant groups (herbs, ground floor bryophytes, trunk-dwelling bryophytes and seedlings) was studied in a deciduous–coniferous mixed woodland in Western Hungary. The correlation of cover and species richness in each group and the cover of individual species to relative diffuse light were analyzed at differe...
Article
Full-text available
The effect of tree species composition, stand structure characteristics and substrate availability on ground-floor bryophyte assemblages was studied in mixed deciduous forests of Western Hungary. Species composition, species richness and cover of bryophytes occurring on the soil and logs were analysed as dependent variables. The whole assemblage an...
Article
Three indirect light measurement methods were compared in mixed deciduous and coniferous forests with heterogeneous stand structure: tRAYci - a spatially explicit light model calculating percentage of above canopy light (PACL); LAI-2000 Plant Canopy Analyzer measuring diffuse non-interceptance (D1FN); and spherical densiometer estimating canopy ope...

There is a paradigm shift in Central Europe from the traditional forestry systems towards continuous cover forestry resulting in a diversification of management practices. The effects of forestry treatments and stand characteristics determine undergrowth vegetation as well as animal communities. In a series of studies we examine how these factors affect the composition and abundance of forest spider communities.
