Abstract


By comparison with other ecosystem types, the forest describes itself as a high complexity and diversity, resilience, stability and an uncontested ecological, social and economic efficiency. Between all these characteristics of the forest there is a tight bond, and the higher the biodiversity is, the stronger its stability and resilience will be to the harmful biotic and abiotic factors. Real life examples are known, from the literature, where many stands were affected by harmful factors, like strong winds and great amounts of snow. The vast majority of these stands are pure, meaning they contained only one species, like beech or spruce. Although the pure stands are easier to manage from the silvotechnic point of view, those presents more risks than the mixed stands, where numerous species also have the mutual protection role. Acer pseudoplatanus, stand, biodiversity, stable ecosystems, silvotechnic measures
