Gap disturbance dynamics in virgin forest Lom
Virgin forests are known as self-sufficient natural systems which provide diverse structures and microhabitats. Natural patterns of virgin forest self-regeneration proved to be reliable indicators for planning silvicultural activities. We experimentally examined six gaps in the Piceo-Abieti-Fagetum virgin forest “Lom” that is located in the north-western part of the Republic of Srpska in order to determine the causes of gap creation and to evaluate the influence of created gaps on forest dynamics.
