DYNAMICS OF THE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT PROCESS OF LOWER SUBALPINE CARPATHIAN BEECH STANDS OF THE BIESZCZADY NATIONAL PARK
Keywords: Carpathian beech stands, The Bieszczady National Park, loss, ingrowth, increment, dry-wood
This paper presents results of analysis of the dynamics of growth and development of beech stands in the lower subalpine zone in the Bieszczady National Park from the point of view of size-volume interrelationships of the following three main forest-forming processes: thickness increment, the process of trees dying off in stands and growing of young trees to reach the layer of the manure stand. The obtained results confirmed that the examined beech forests exhibit similarity with multigenerational, complex forests of primeval character. An argument in favour of this includes in particular: high stand volume, good forest health condition and a positive relationship between the process of tree survival (volume increment and ingrowth) and the decrement process. The wide peak distance of culminations of two traits is characteristic too: the number of trees in the lowest diameter subclass and the volume in the diameter subclass several intervals higher.
