    Slovakia, Italy, Eastern Europe

    Shrift towards private ownership in forestry recourses in transition countries of Central and Eastern Europe promotes forest values and their development in diversified ways. In this paper, we provide a general equilibrium model assisting in estimation of forest management practices in the regional level by comparing different ownership structures and public policy measures. The model is applied for the county of Banská Bystrica in Slovakia.

    Czech Republic

    Density and distribution of red deer and roe deer in relation to habitat structure and feed sources was studied using simple faeces transects and monitoring plots during winter in a floodplain forest along the Morava River, Czech Republic. Deer densities detected on the plots and parallel simple faeces transects were comparable, so we used the faeces transects, thus enabling us to gather data from a larger part of the studied area. Densities of both species were relatively high (9.6 and 7.0 ind./square km for red and roe deer, resp.).

    Czech Republic

    Some scenarios of probable climatic changes in the Czech Republic and the anticipated effect of these changes on the components of the hydrologic water discharge from drained agricultural and forest catchments are studied. The function of drainage systems on selected experimental lands is examined. The effect of climatic changes on the hydrologic balance and/or on the runoff from the catchments significantly varies up to +/-150% provided that we compare the average runoff.

    Moldova

    The duality of farm structure in Moldova is manifested by the existence of a relatively small number of large corporate farms at one extreme and a very large number of small and very small family farms at the other. “Medium-sized” family farms, the backbone of any market agriculture, virtually do not exist in Moldova. Moldovan agriculture is characterized by a much greater concentrationof land in large farms than agriculture in market economies. The small individualfarms on the whole are more productive and more efficient than the large corporate farms.

    Slovakia

    The present paper gives an overview of the survey of LUCAS points in Slovakia. The Land Use/Cover Area frame Statistical survey was designed to collect agricultural, environmental data and photographs by field observation of a specific geographically referenced point. LUCAS 2006 survey in the Slovak Republic was carried out by a Soil Science and Conservation Research Institute (SSCRI).The survey of 3 392 points was organized from the 21st of March till 16th of July. The measurements were carried out by 7teams (in pairs). All points had to be visited, measured with GPS and documented.
