Special attention is given to how this scientific knowledge is implemented in management guidelines and practices. Presented topics are : methodology and results of intensive monitoring of vegetation dynamics in strict forest reserves; genetic and morphological diversity of plant species in water courses and the impact of planting them on the present flora; analysis of sylvicultural and floristic data of the Flemish Forest Inventory; inventory and study of authochthonous woody plants and programs for in situ and ex situ conservation; influence of extensive grazing on forest species composition and vegetation stucture; comparison of vegetation composition in ew f orest stands: active vs. Spontaneous afforestation.
