Abstract
For the assessment of the game influence on forest regeneration, it is important to characterize both the regeneration potential, the silvicultural conditions (e.g. forest stand structures, canopy cover, ground vegetation, etc) and game influence parameters of the forest ecosystems. This should enable the establishment and development of the factors, which influence the regeneration process to be differentiated from those factors of the game influence. Possibilities and added value through the combination of terrestrial surveys and remote sensing techniques are developed. Furthermore, the combination of inquiries about forest structure, forest regeneration and ground vegetation provide an important basis for decision-making with regard to the assessment of habitat quality and habitat capacity. Recommendations for forest and game management, based on the scientific and research-relevant elaborations, will be derived.
