The study area is located in the low mountain range of Central Europe (Eifel) and characterized by a marked relief and high game densities. Especially red deer populations, calculated at 20 ind./100 ha, surpass the carrying capacity of the forests observed. Trampling (by red deer and moufflon) and rooting (wild boar) result in extensive soil disturbances, visible as soil profile mixture and soil erosion. We examined eight oak forests(Quercus petraea) located on slopes ranging from 24 to 34… CONTINUE READING
