Pavlyuk, Nataliya, 2010. Vegetation gradients due to management and light intensity in beech stands of the Lviv region (Ukraine). Second cycle, A2E. Alnarp: SLU, Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre



Conservation and sustainable use of forest ecosystems is one of the most important
environmental goals today. In this work, special attention was directed to the vegetation of
beech forests (Fagus sylvatica L.) in Ukraine. Beech stands of the Lviv region are among the
most productive in Europe and are characterized by species rich herbaceous vegetation.
In this work, the amount and structure of the herbaceous species vegetation in beech stands in
Lviv green zone was analysed in relation to gradients in light and management intensity from
nature reserve, managed forest and parks.
Research on the sample areas shows, that there is a difference in species composition between
forest, natural reserve and park areas in the green zone of Lviv city. Differences mainly
depend on the anthropogenic impact on the territory.. Sample areas which are situated far
from places of recreation show a higher presence of typical beech forest species, than
comparing to places, where the level of recreation is more intense.
