ABSTRACT

The paper deals with applying of the biogeographic model of climatic conditions of forest vegetation zones in the Czech Republic to forest management strategy under predicted climate changes. The biogeographic model which was developed at Palacky University Olomouc is based on climatological prediction data for the time period 2010 - 2100 according to Representative Concentration Pathways regional scenarios and geobiocoenological data related to forest vegetation zonation. As results presented, climatic conditions of forest vegetation zones in the Czech Republic will improve the climate conditions of the area of the first - fifth forest vegetation zones and the area of these zones will increase. On the contrary, the area with climatic conditions of sixth to eighth forest vegetation zones will significantly decrease in prediction time horizon. The biogeographic model can be applied as a support tool for forest management strategies of adaptation and mitigation measures in forested landscapes.

Keywords: climate change, forest management, forest vegetation zone, modelling.
