Abstract

Because of selective feeding of ungulates diverse uneven-aged forests (e.g. virgin beech forests) are probably more resistant to browsing impacts than even-aged ones. Browsing impact of ungulates was revealed to be low and preferential in an uneven-aged beech forest in Hungary. Beech saplings were almost entirely unbrowsed and economically less important woody species were highly selected by browsing ungulates.
