The resources and conditions of occurrence of wild cherry Prunus avium (Rosaceae) in the Wielkopolski National Park

Abstract

An inventory of wild cherry trees in the Wielkopolski National Park was made during 2007-2008. Totally, 1098 specimens of the species, in 86 forest compartments were inventoried. There were 28 monumental trees among them; the biggest one of 30 m height and 197 cm of circumference. The habitat conditions of Prunus avium occurrence on its natural sites of the Wielkopolski National Park show a wide range. Wild cherry grows here on soils representing eight types – most often on lessivè and rusty soils. In the typology of forest habitats, the species, occurs most often on habitats of a fresh deciduous forest sites, a fresh mixed deciduous forest sites and a fresh oak-pine forest sites. Also the community context of its sites shows a wide range. Wild cherry trees were recorded
in eight forest plant communities – the most frequent in phytocoenoses of oak-hornbeam forests Galio sylvatici-Carpinetum, acidophilous oak forests Calamagrostio arundinaceae-Quercetum and continental pine-oak forests Querco roboris-Pinetum.
