Abstract [sv]

Homogenous forests, such as forests managed for timber harvest, have caused a lot of discussion regarding the effect they have on biodiversity. Many studies have been done comparing the presence of organism groups and species between different types of forest and the production forests to better understand the effect production forests have on biodiversity. However, few studies have focused on how the bryophyte community is affected by these forests. In this study I study seven indicator moss species and compare their occurrence between nature reserves and production forests in Örebro municipality. These indicator species are used when evaluating if a forest has habitats that are of importance for red-listed species. When doing the inventory, I searched for potential habitat in the forests and tried to locate these species. I found that there were significantly more indicator species per inventoried area in the nature reserves than in the production forests. Furthermore, the density of the mosses was significantly higher in the nature reserves than in the production forests. These results suggest that habitats that are important for the indicator species and thus, the red-listed species are more scarce in the production forests.
