ABSTRACT
Floodplain forest ecosystems along lowland rivers in Central Europe were subject to long-term and strong human impacts. In history, floodplain forests were usually managed using the coppice-with-standards silvicultural system. Therefore, floodplain forests are valuable habitats with respect to its biodiversity. Rich biodiversity is the main reason of including of the most of floodplain forest ecosystems to ecological networks in lowland landscapes along big rivers. Currently, historical coppice-withstandards management is considered to be appropriate for floodplain forests, which formed core zones of ecological networks in lowland areas. This paper presents case study about applying coppice-with-standards management to ecological network from the Czech Republic taking into account conservation targets of Natura 2000 European network.

Keywords: biodiversity, coppice-with-standards, ecological network, floodplain forest
