Discussion was on questions regarding methodological and technical nuances, as well as conceptual problems affecting forest habitat protection and management guidelines; marshy forests as important habitat for capercaillie, planning management activities and methodology in particular biotope, management of hydrological regime in floodplain forests, disturbance reproduction in boreal forests on eskers, value of ecosystem services in oak forests and habitat classification in slope forests are some of the main issues to mention.
Participants of the meeting agreed that further additions and refinements will be submitted until 15th February 2016.
The afternoon session was devoted to a look back at the progress made in 2015 within protected forest habitat maintenance and restoration. Professor Mr. G.
