A review of habitat thresholds for dead wood: a baseline for management recommendations in European forests
In contemporary forest management, also of commercial forests, threshold values are widely used for consideration of biodiversity conservation. Here, we present various aspects of dead-wood thresholdExpand

Modelling habitat selection of the cryptic Hazel Grouse Bonasa bonasia in a montane forest
The Hazel Grouse Bonasa bonasia is strongly affected by forest dynamics, and populations in many areas within Europe are declining. As a result of the ‘wilding’ concept implemented in the NationalExpand

Assessing biodiversity by remote sensing in mountainous terrain: the potential of LiDAR to predict forest beetle assemblages
Summary 1. Effective biodiversity management can only be implemented if data are available on assemblage–environment relationships. The level of detail needs to be relevant to the scale of planningExpand

Critical forest age thresholds for the diversity of lichens, molluscs and birds in beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) dominated forests
Abstract Forest age is one of the most simple but ecologically effective key values that may be controlled by forest management. Young and mature but managed forests differ significantly fromExpand

Lichen diversity in temperate montane forests is influenced by forest structure more than climate
Although the effect of forest management on lichens in temperate forests has been widely examined, little is known about the influence of management-related factors on their biodiversity relative toExpand

Association of extinction risk of saproxylic beetles with ecological degradation of forests in Europe.
To reduce future loss of biodiversity and to allocate conservation funds effectively, the major drivers behind large-scale extinction processes must be identified. A promising approach is to link theExpand

Composition versus physiognomy of vegetation as predictors of bird assemblages: the role of lidar.
Abstract Whether diversity and composition of avian communities is determined primarily by responses of species to the floristic composition or to the structural characteristics of habitats has beenExpand

Arthropod decline in grasslands and forests is associated with landscape-level drivers
Recent reports of local extinctions of arthropod species1, and of massive declines in arthropod biomass2, point to land-use intensification as a major driver of decreasing biodiversity. However, toExpand

Current near-to-nature forest management effects on functional trait composition of saproxylic beetles in beech forests.
With the aim of wood production with negligible negative effects on biodiversity and ecosystem processes, a silvicultural practice of selective logging with natural regeneration has been implementedExpand

New Possibilities of Observing Animal Behaviour from a Distance Using Activity Sensors in Gps-Collars: An Attempt to Calibrate Remotely Collected Activity Data with Direct Behavioural Observations in
Knowing what an animal is doing where and when is crucial for understanding habitat use as well as for detecting deviations from the norm, e.g. the animal's responses to disturbances or predators.Expand
