Abstracts
An example of the possible use of selected forest-stand based indicators for evaluation of conservation status was shown in case of the Na­tura 2000 forest habitats of Slovenia, and the potential threats to habitat types were identified. Using the existing forest-management system, and two levels of ICP Forests monitoring as sources of data on the size of habitat, tree composi­tion, developmental phase and stand regeneration, growing stock and incre­ment, dead wood, and level of naturalness of habitat, an attempt of evaluation of the conservation status of the forest habitat types of EU community interest (Habitat Directive 1992, Natura 2000) is presented.
In total, the Natura 2000 forest habitat types in Slovenia represent almost one third of all forest area, and the prevailing forest habitat types are Illyrian Fagus sylvaticaforests, Luzulo-Fagetumbeech forests and Illyrian oak-horn­beam forests. Considering the direct influences of human activities and poten­tial effects of climate change the floodplain and lowland forests of Alluvial forests with Alnus glutinosaandFraxinus excelsior, Riparian mixed forests of Quercus roburand other broadleaves, as well as Illyrian oak-hornbeam forest, are among the most threatened forest habitat types. Taking into account the small area of habitat type and the set of different threats, the priority habitat types of Tilio-Acerionforests of slopes, screes and ravines, (Sub-) Mediterra­nean pine forests and Bog woodland are also endangered.
Despite the large number of factors threatening the Slovenian forests, the high level of studied parameters indicates the favourable conservation status of forest habitat types. However, the additional focus on the EU priority habitat types and on rare habitat types on the national level has been suggested to im­prove the existing forest management planning system, and additional forest-re­levant indicators specific to particular habitat types have to be incorporated in the system.
