Forests are among the most diverse and complex ecosystems on earth, and a great deal of effort has been devoted to explaining how this diversity is maintained (hille ris lambers et al 2012 johnson et al 2012)most if not all forest ecosystems include at least one tree species that is highly shade-tolerant and capable of self-replacement (ie “climax” species.
Abstract phosphorus availability may shape plant–microorganism–soil interactions in forest ecosystems our aim was to quantify the interactions between soil p availability and p nutrition strategies of european beech (fagus sylvatica) forestswe assumed that plants and microorganisms of p-rich forests carry over mineral-bound p into the biogeochemical p cycle (acquiring strategy. Germany, being in the centre of the natural distribution of this forest type and having some of the largest areas of this forest type left, has a globally important role in the conservation of european beech forest ecosystems. Buffer zone – represents other, surrounding ecosystems associated with the beech forest ecosystems, mainly alpine zone these areas mitigate impacts or pressures on old growth beech forests, from the point of view of the territory and the socio-economic activities of the local communities. In forests of mixed beech, or beech with other trees, responses to gaps can be complex for example, in mountain–silver beech forest, faster-growing mountain beech seedlings initially fill new gaps, but the more shade-tolerant, longer-lived silver beech gradually takes over. Beech forest network of europe from 15 to 19 of november 2015, 30 experts and stakeholders from 12 european countries1, who are dedicated to ecological research on and conservation of old and free-willed european beech forest ecosystems, gathered on the isle of vilm and conducted an intensive workshop to exchange recent findings2 as one of the.
Of multifunctional forest use takes the importance of ecosystem services into account, the ecosystem services significantly lag behind the ecosystem goods in reality, contrary to this ideal the requirement that ecosystems must be managed within the limits of their functioning (principle 6) is. The american chestnut tree is the giant cousin of the american beech, and the devastating loss of billions of american chestnut trees caused havoc to the ecology of eastern forests.

Forest insects and diseases are serious threats and can have devastating impacts on the long-term health and sustainability of forest ecosystems diseases, such as chestnut blight and dutch elm disease, and insect pests, such as emerald ash borer, gypsy moth, and hemlock woolly adelgid, already have significantly changed our forest landscapes.
There is a possibility of one of the ecosystems undergo succession the grassy meadow would be primary succession when the seedlings from beech-maple trees begin to grow in the meadow the meadow can slowly undergo succession to become a climax community, which is tobe a beech-maple forest. Wood density is considered to be the most important predictor of wood quality but despite its importance, diffuse-porous tree species have been the subject of only a limited number of studies the importance of european beech forests for central europe calls for profound research to examine the potential impact of a warmer climate on the quality of beech timber.
