Maintaining biodiversity

There are two approaches to conserve or generally to maintain biodiversity in forests: the protection area network created in the country, and the orientation of the forest management outside the actually protected areas in such a way that it secures the maintenance of biodiversity on a large–scale. The current approach suggests that biodiversity targets can best be reached by the integration of segregated protection areas with closeto- nature forest management. This success can be monitored by the numbers of threatened species, which can be seen as indicators of change in the forest ecosystems.
