Abstract english

For efficient biodiversity preservation planning in forestry we need estimates of the actual and potential conservation value of individual stands. Our approach is based on a relatively good knowledge of the habitat requirements of regionally red-listed and threatened species. The estimation requires also knowledge of habitat availability in the surrounding landscape and the distance and species composition at biodiversity hot-spots nearby. The effects of long-time forest continuity on presumed dispersal-restricted organisms are built into our estimates. We argue that a broad taxonomic knowledge is necessary for an efficient planning of biodiversity preservation. Using only vascular plants and/or vertebrates as guidance will inevitably lead to biased estimates of conservational value at stand level.
