Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to prepare a management plan for the future nature reserve Helges hage in Eksta, Gotland. The area has a long continuity as a woodland and has been used as pasture and for selective logging. This type of forestry practices creates a dynamic, heterogeneous landscape with a rich biodiversity. In Helges hage many unusual soil fungi and two endangered grass species have been found. Grazed woodlands is one of the habitats that has decreased most in Sweden the last century as a result of the modern forestry. Helges hage has not been grazed since the 1960 and the forest understory is now overgrown by shrubs and saplings. In order to preserve the natural values of a grazed woodland it is required to reintroduce grazing and that parts of the forest is thinned in order to create a less dense forest with more light reaching the ground.
