Ecosystem conservation plays an increasingly important role in forest management. The value for such conservation has been directly linked to high diversity of species and structure within systems. In the past, forestry inventory practices have concentrated on aspects that were primarily required for timber management. Now, however, much interest has arisen in measures that will indicate higher or lower diversity. The interspersion of trees of different species reflects diversity at a local… Expand

Abstract In Europe, concerns regarding the provision of ecosystem services from forests, such as biodiversity, has led to a widespread conversion from even-aged to close-to-nature forest management.Expand

TLDR
Analyzing changes in tree species composition, stand structure, and creation and closure of canopy gaps in the National Nature Reserve Dobrocský prales (Slovakia), a remnant of mixed old-growth forests of the Western Carpathians, confirms a relatively high degree of structural differentiation throughout the development cycle.
