Long-term changes of the wildland–urban interface in the Polish Carpathians

ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information, Vol. 7, No. 4. (01 April 2018), 137,


The Wildland–Urban Interface (WUI) is the area where houses and wildland vegetation meet or intermingle, which causes many environmental problems. The current WUI is widespread in many regions, but it is unclear how the WUI evolved, especially in regions where both houses and forest cover have increased. Here we compared WUI change in the Polish Carpathians for 1860 and 2013 in two study areas with different land use history. Our western study area experienced gradual forest increase and housing growth over ...


The relationship between potential solar radiation and spruce bark beetle catches in pheromone traps

Annals of Forest Research, Vol. 55, No. 2. (2012), pp. 243-252


We analysed the relationship between the amount of potential solar radiation and spruce bark beetle Ips typographus (L.) catches in pheromone traps in an unmanaged nature reserve in the Carpathians (middle Slovakia region), from 2006 through 2009. This relationship was analysed under outbreak conditions. The number of traps varied in different years from 70 to 92. The traps were installed in spruce-forest-dominated stands affected by a windstorm in 2004. A GPS device was used to mark the position of the pheromone ...


Tree and stand-level patterns and predictors of Norway spruce mortality caused by bark beetle infestation in the Tatra Mountains

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 354 (October 2015), pp. 261-271,


This study investigates temporal shifts in Norway spruce (Picea abies) mortality, stand structure characteristics, and stand complexity facilitated by a bark beetle (Ips typographus) outbreak that affected an unmanaged subalpine forest region in Tatra National Park, Poland in the late 2000s. Changes in survivorship and stand structure characteristics (diameter (DBH), basal area, height, age, and crown length ratio) of nearly 2500 spatially-referenced trees located in 64 long-term survey plots were compared over four time periods that spanned the duration of the ...


Chloroplast DNA variation of white oaks in northern Balkans and in the Carpathian Basin

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 156, No. 1-3. (February 2002), pp. 197-209,


A total of 1113 oak trees from 222 populations originating from eight countries (Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Yugoslavia) were sampled in natural populations or in provenance tests. The sampled trees belong to four different species (Quercus robur, Quercus petraea, Quercus pubescens, Quercus frainetto) and to several putative subspecies. Variation at four chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) fragments was studied using restriction enzymes, resulting in the detection of 12 haplotypes. One haplotype was present in 36% of the trees, and six ...


A tree-ring reconstruction of wind disturbances in a forest of the Slovakian Tatra Mountains, Western Carpathians

Journal of Vegetation Science, Vol. 21, No. 1. (February 2010), pp. 31-42,


[Question] Have past windstorm events influenced the structure and composition of mountain forests in the Tatra Mountains? Can severe and infrequent wind disturbances lead to dynamic coexistence of two tree species with different ecological requirements?

Forest cover changes in the northern Carpathians in the 20th century: a slow transition

Journal of Land Use Science, Vol. 2, No. 2. (30 May 2007), pp. 127-146,


The reversal from deforestation to forest increase is named forest transition. It combines factors related to social and economic development or policies attempting to overcome the possible scarcity of timber. This study focuses on forest transition in the northern Carpathians, stretching across four countries (Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine) with complex history and variability with respect to present-day economical development. Forest maps were computed for the 1930s and 1990s on the basis of available topographical and satellite data. Forest cover ...


Acer Pseudoplatanus L., Tilia Cordata Mill. and Pinus Sylvestris L. as Valuable Tree Species in the Carpathian Forests

In The Carpathians: Integrating Nature and Society Towards Sustainability (2013), pp. 285-300,


Sycamore maple, little-leaf linden, and Scots pine occurring in unique mixed stands, such as beech and sycamore maple in the Bieszczady Mountains, linden forest in the Obrożyska Reserve (the Beskid Sądecki Mountains), and scattered Carpathian pine forests, were the subject of this study. It was found that sycamore maple can be a highly productive admixture and a co-dominant or even dominant species in beech forests as a protective species of the upper timberline at altitudes between 930 and 1,160 m. Little-leaf linden ...


Sustainable Forest Management Alternatives for the Carpathian Mountains with a Focus on Ukraine

In The Carpathians: Integrating Nature and Society Towards Sustainability (2013), pp. 331-352,


Sustainable forest management (SFM) has been challenging in the Carpathian Mountain region of Europe. We explore emerging models and innovative practices that offer guidance on implementing SFM, based on recommendations developed through a scientific atelier held in western Ukraine. Information was gathered through technical presentations, site visits, unstructured interviews with stakeholders, and literature review. The contribution of SFM to biodiversity conservation depends on the establishment of fully representative and sufficiently extensive reserve systems. On managed forestlands, providing a better balance of ...


European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) and silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) rotation in the Carpathians—A developmental cycle or a linear trend induced by man?

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 258, No. 4. (July 2009), pp. 347-356,


A detailed historical survey was made to assess the impact of humans on fir–beech forests in the northern Carpathians. Research findings are compared with results from repeated tree layer measurements in eight of the most well-preserved reserves of fir–beech stands in the region. Documentary evidence is provided showing that the historical and contemporary spontaneous development of fir–beech stands throughout the northern Carpathians is identical. The replacement of beech by fir occurred predominantly in the period from the 15–18th centuries, primarily due ...


The influence of the spatial pattern of trees on forest floor vegetation and silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) regeneration in uneven-aged forests

Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 205, No. 1-3. (February 2005), pp. 283-298,


In the Western Carpathians (of southern Poland), in three representative multilayered fir stands, all trees above 6.9 cm in d1.3 were mapped. Subsequently, forest floor vegetation cover, vascular plant species, and fir seedlings (below 0.5 m in height) were systematically sampled on small circular plots in a 5 m × 5 m grid. On the basis of location in the stand and indicator values of plant species registered within the plot, an index of influence and a mean indicator value of soil moisture, soil trophy, and soil ...
