Summary: The importance of the project is development of principal multidisciplinary method for forest state and changes determining and monitoring by application of methods,that allow quantitative analyses and comparison;by organisation (in EMFT data base)and use of existing data on properties of 63 defined and spatially delineated EMFTs as elementary units.Methodological procedure of determining of spatial and time explanation of development and relationship,included identification,selection and quantification of indicators and their operational criteria for:(a)potential state (that quantify forest structure,development and functions), (b)changes of stand (that quantify the effects of induced stresses),(c)exposures (that quantify integrated physical, chemical and biological pressures as indicative causes of forest damaging).The method is developed and tested on EMFT II-G-10 and III-K-10.To express the potential state,stands of optimal production were modelled and quantitatively described by regression functions for certain properties.Named and quantified are stand vitality as a measure of state and changes;stand exposure to pressures as an indicative measure of vitality changes;synthesized and elementary indicators and diagnostic parameters as criteria for evaluation of measures mentioned.The results on stand vitality difference between two measurements and on category differences of stand exposures obtained by introducing diagnostic parameters,indicate the method applicability,as well as usefulness and sensitivensess of indicators for EMFT state and changes defining.

Keywords: Natural forest ecosystem, ecological-management forest type, normal state of stands, vitality, model stand, synthesized indicators and diagnostic parameters, stand exposure

Research goals: In ecological-managerial forest type (EMFT) II-G-10 forest of common oak with common hornbeam and in the most significant karst EMFT forest of pubescent oak and oriental hornbeam: 1.To define relations among ecological and structural stand elements and to select the indicators of losses caused by technopressure, inadequate management, fires and game. (2) In EMFT II-G-10 to determine critical vitality degrees of stands up to which it is possible to prevent forest decline, by proper management practices. (3) To propose the stand model for optimal production under certain ecological conditions. Expected results: 1. Model for evaluating of expected damages, 2. Model for evaluation of forest ecosystem as environmental ecological capital, 3. Database supported by GIS, that could be used for other purposes (geostrategic research, Environmental Information System), 4. Designing of principal multidisciplinary integral method for determining and monitoring of forest state and changes.
