Abstract

In two beech forest areas of Zurich and Zofingen, AG (situated in the central plains), a partly new method to quantify their degree of naturalness has been investigated with the help of 41 plots. The assessment is based on the modified vegetational survey according to Braun-Blanquet and on the comparison between the actual and potential natural vegetation. The method can be employed with a reasonable use of time and money. In addition, plant diversity was recorded. 51% of the plots are more or less in their natural state, while 10% of the plots show a strong anthropogenic influence. Very few differences in the beech forests were recorded between the two test areas of Zurich and Zofingen. While foresters are mainly responsible for the maintenance and improvement of the state of forests, much can also be contributed by members of the public.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
