ABSTRACT

This paper deals with the conservation and sustainable management of floodplain forest
ecosystems in the temperate zones of Europe using practical experience from the Czech
Republic. The fundamental objectives of protecting these ecosystems stem from the fact
that most of the surviving remnants of floodplain forests in the Czech Republic meet the
attributes of ancient woodlands. The framework scientific basis for the conservation and
management of floodplain forest ecosystems consist in landscape ecological theories
relating to the Central European floodplain landscape. The principles of floodplain
forests conservation respect their integration into the European network Natura
2000. The strategy of floodplain forests sustainable management has been formulated
pursuant to the application of umbrella species theory and the ecosystem approach.

Keywords: conservation, floodplain forests temperate zone of Europe, Natura 2000,
sustainable forest management.
