Stabilization of Forest Functions in Anthropically Disturbed and Changing Environmental Conditions
This scientific symposium was held on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Forestry Research Station at Opočno. Silvicultural conferences have established a long lasting tradition of meetings of Czech and Slovak specialists from forestry research institutes and universities. In 2011 it took place for the 12th time. This year we also started to issue a new series of proceedings to serve regular publishing of conference papers. Its title is Proceedings of Central European Silviculture and it follows the eleven former conference proceedings (see Appendix).

Problem of gall midge Contarinia fagi in forest nurseries
The beech bud gall midge (Contarinia fagi) (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) attacks beech seedlings (Fagus sylvatica) in several forest nurseries in the Czech Republic. Four generations of this gall midge developed in the plastic greenhouse of the Forest Research Station at Opocno in 2002. Theoretically, the offspring of one parent pair of gall midge (of 1 female and 1 male) should produce during 4 generations up to 100,000 adults which may attack up to 300,000 beech buds in one vegetation season. In the Czech Republic beech seedlings are damaged also by other biotic agents, viz. eriophyid mites of the genus Aceria (Eriophyidae, Acari) and by fungi of the genus Nectria (Ascomycetes, Fungi). Multiplication and stunted shoots of young beech plants may be manifestation of virus disease. To prevent this situation, it is necessary to control beech seedlings by all accessible means.
