Abstract:

The future bison release in freedom in

the VNNP’s area, estimated for 2011, represented

the reason and the main object for this scientifical

research. It is well-known that the damages

produced by free European bison to forest

ecosystems, especially for the forest tree species,

represent one of the main ‘threats’ for the

reintroduction program. For this research, in two

consecutive years (2009 - 2010), we performed a

complete assessment of the damaged trees for a

surface of 45 ha inside the acclimatisation

enclosure.

Keywords:

European bison, damage, forest vegetation, aclimatisation enclosure.
