Sažetak
When we talk about risks for Mediterranean forests we put forest fires on first place and on second storm winds. On European level damages caused by forest fires make 16% and storm winds 51% of all forest damages (assessment for period 2005-2010) but for Mediterranean part the ratio of damages caused by forest fires is much more higher than one caused by storm winds. This is also the case for Mediterranean part of Croatia which stretches along the Adriatic coast. Forest fires represent most serious and constant danger for forests which destroys the forest and forest land and caused degradation of habitats, worsen the forest soil quality, caused erosion and changes in ecological stability and loss of biodiversity. They can destroy waste areas of forests and by this caused serious and no reversal changes in landscape reduce attractiveness of touristic destinations, also they endanger human lives, houses and infrastructure, causing damages and losses in economy. Storm winds also caused lot of damages in forests and it seems that their impact and importance will only grow over the time under the influence of climate changes. Damages caused by storm winds have serious economic and social consequences and of most importance is to prevent them whenever is possible or to manage those which we can’t prevent. As they are part of natural dynamics in forest ecosystems they can seriously influence and change the stand structure and evolutionary processes related to regeneration and succession in forest stands. Smaller damages can even increase dynamic and diversity in small groups of trees which can stimulate regeneration, increase amount of dead wood in forests and influence microclimatic conditions, also it can increase biodiversity and at the same time stay on acceptable economic level of damage. Management of forest fires’ risks are in first place connected to forest management measures, starting from guarding, monitoring of forests and education of users in sense of prevention, and in sense to enable fast reaction in forest fires fighting and forest regeneration after forest fires. Risk management related to storm winds are connected to forest management measures, distribution of risks inside the forest complex and acceptance of losses when costs of prevention exceed damages. Paper present methodology for assessment of damages caused by those two main causes and also measures for prevention, risks reduction and regeneration.
