  • Wood identification and tree-ring chronology building of oak pillars
           excavated from submerged prehistoric settlement (3000 BC), Ropotamo River
           estuary, Black Sea

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 25(1): 13-20
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.25.e119972
      Authors : Dimitar Petrov Dimitrov : Eighty one well-preserved wooden pillars were found аs a result of underwater archaeological excavations of a submerged prehistoric settlement in the estuary of Ropotamo River, Black Sea. That provokes a scientific interest to identify wood materials. The longest tree-ring chronologies have been used to build floating dendrochronology series. Anatomical features of xylem showed that 34 out of the 81 studied wooden pillars belong to genus Quercus. The remaining 47 pillars belong to a species of the genera Fraxinus, Acer, Ulmus and Platanus. It has been found that 8 out of 34 oak pillars have a length of tree-ring series over 30 years. This was the reason to select them for dendrochronological studies. The length of the built floating master chronology for the oaks is 84 years. The lack of strong coherent signal between 34 single oak dendrochronological series can be explained with three different types of oak forest ecosystems, in the area of the Ropotamo River estuary. These forest ecosystems are as follows: oak high stand forests in Strandzha Mountain, oak coppice forests on the Black Sea coast plains and riparian ‘Longoz’ forests of Ropotamo River. The tree-ring series of these forest types have different tree-ring signatures. Based on the tree-ring analysis it can be assumed that the timber of the above-mentioned three types of oak ecosystems was used in the construction of the prehistoric settlement. HTML XML PDF

  • Conceptual basis for studying the fungal biodiversity in organogenic soils
           in the area of the Bulgarian Antarctic Base ‘St. Kliment Ohridski’ on
           Livingston Island

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 25(1): 5-11
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.25.e119195
      Authors : Margarita Georgieva, Chavdar Zhelev, Miglena Zhiyanski, Georgi Georgiev, Mihaela Hristova, Mariam Bozhilova, Rositsa Yaneva, Blagoy Koychev : In 2023, a scientific project for studying the fungal biodiversity in organogenic soils in the area of the Bulgarian Antarctic Base ‘St. Kliment Ohridski’ on Livingston Island was funded by the National Center for the Polar Studies at Sofia University ‘St. Kliment Ohridski’, implemented under the National Program for Polar Research ‘From Pole to Pole’, adopted by the Ministry of Education and Science. In the period February-March 2023, a total of 126 soil samples were collected for analysis. Soil samples were carried out in the upper 0-5 cm soil layer. In places with deeper soil profiles, samples were collected from the deeper layer>5 cm. All samples were stored in sterile polyethylene bags in a freezer at minus 28°C on the Bulgarian ship ‘St. St. Cyril and Methodius’, which arrived in Bulgaria on 2nd May 2023. The present study aims to present the conceptual basis for the study of structure, composition, and bioecological features of fungal species occurring in Antarctic organogenic soils from Livingston Island, to investigate the representatives of separate taxonomic groups of invertebrate organisms interacting with the fungal species in the soil, and to establish the relationships with the soil characteristics in the studied sites. Studies of the biological and ecological features of representatives of the mycota in Antarctic organogenic soils, their physiological and biochemical behavior, and interaction with invertebrate organisms, are essential for a better understanding of the biological processes occurring in them, and the implementation of this project will have substantial contribution to these issues.

  • Identifying key quality characteristics of woody biomass for bioenergy
           application: an international review

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(3): 77-94
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e114644
      Authors : Mohammad Reza Ghaffariyan : Biomass characteristics play an important role in product classification, economic values, and types of usage. This research was initiated by the IEA Bioenergy Technology Collaboration Programme, which aimed to review and identify the top biomass characteristics as they relate to commercially viable biomaterial and bioenergy processes. An online search (in English) was conducted using the following keywords: biomass, chips, quality, characteristics, moisture content, calorific values, contamination and ash content. The search was restricted to woody biomass and raw feedstock materials. Review results were classified based on regions including Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. Each case study was described based on the study background, type of biomass and biomass attributes that were measured. The key biomass characteristic was moisture content that was consistently measured in almost all reports. Ash content and calorific value were classified as second place in terms of frequency in the biomass studies. Lower frequency belonged to the attributes such as bulk density, contamination, particle shape and nutrient (elemental) content. Detailed information of different case studies is provided in this report. It is anticipated that this literature review will assist IEA Bioenergy and its industrial and scientific network to better understand the current knowledge gaps regarding woody biomass characterisation.

  • Egg parasitoids of Thaumetopoea pityocampa in the region of
           Gyumyurdzhinski Snezhnik in Eastern Rhodopes, Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(3): 61-76
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e116522
      Authors : Plamen Mirchev, Georgi Georgiev, Margarita Georgieva, Gergana Zaemdzhikova, Lilia Bocheva, Peter Boyadzhiev, Maria Dobreva, Maria Matova : The region of Gyumyurdzhinski Snezhnik in the Eastern Rhodopes is the closest in Bulgaria to the Aegean Sea. However, the climate is characterized by specific parameters that are determined by its relief. It is poorly protected from the invasion of cold air masses from the north. From the south, the Gyumyurdzhinski Snezhnik hill restrains the Mediterranean influence. The orography of the area favors the retention of cold air masses and a further drop in temperatures. The experimental material for the study includes 5 generations of Thaumetopoea pityocampa (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2022), collected in 31 locations of four State Forestry Enterprises: Kirkovo, Ardino, Momchilgrad, and Zlatograd. The sample for analysis included 693 egg batches with 148420 eggs in them. Seven primary egg parasitoids were established in this region: Ooencyrtus pityocampae, Baryscapus servadeii, Pediobius bruchicida, Anastatus bifasciatus, Eupelmus vesicularis, E. vladimiri, Trichogramma sp. and one hyperparasitoid (B. transversalis). Dominant parasitoids were B. servadeii and O. pityocampae, and E. vladimiri and P. bruchicida – occasional parasitoids. The hyperparasitoid B. transversalis participated in the complex with a relatively low share. The survival of the egg parasitoids in the laboratory conditions, in which the samples were kept, was low. The total mortality of the parasitoids in larval and adult stages was 47.8%. After collecting the samples, in laboratory conditions, a total of 442 individuals of the hyperparasitoid B. transversalis emerged, of which 56.3% were females and 43.7% were males. The average number of pine processionary moth eggs in a batch was 214.2. 70.8% of all the eggs in the samples hatched successfully. The egg parasitoids are a very serious natural factor, regulating the density of the pine processionary moth, but their impact varied from 2.1% to 30.3%. The natural characteristics of the area, the air temperature during the stages of eggs and young larvae, are favorable for the development of the pine processionary moth. Unhatched larvae without the influence of entomophages were 7.2%. HTML XML PDF

  • Integrated mapping of ecosystems and assessment of forest ecosystem
           services at river basin scale

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(3): 43-60
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e115856
      Authors : Stoyan Nedkov, Ivaylo Ananiev, Hristina Prodanova, Vanya Stoycheva : Ecosystems provide various goods and services to society and their valuation is among the main objectives of the concept of ecosystem services (ES). The mapping of ecosystems is the main building block of the whole process of the Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services (MAES). The analyses of the ecosystem data produced during the implementation of the national methodology for mapping ecosystems in Bulgaria (MAES BG) reveal some problems that may cause confusion in cases of integrated assessment of all ecosystem types. In this paper, we present an approach that enables formulation of a uniform spatial dataset based on the mapping of the main ecosystem types, that can be used for mapping of ES at a river basin scale. It has been applied to the upper part of the Ogosta River basin and the result is a topologically correct uniform spatial data layer. The approach gives one possible solution to problems related to the different sources of information and the discrepancies between ecosystem types in the national mapping of ecosystems in Bulgaria. It is based on the use of a uniform spatial framework that outlines the ecosystem types and sets the initial database for further mapping. This ensures a topologically correct spatial dataset for the ecosystems and a background for further updates for each ecosystem at the different levels of MAES typology. The most appropriate spatial basis for the territory of Bulgaria is the database for the physical blocks of the Ministry of Interior. Its application to the studied river basin gives encouraging results and can be used as an example for similar areas. Further development of the approach will ensure the mapping of the forest ecosystems at level 3 of the MAES BG typology and more precise delineation of the grassland, heathland, freshwater, and sparsely vegetated ecosystems.

  • Monitoring of the health status of Castanea sativa in the Belasitsa
           mountain, southwest Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(3): 35-42
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e116036
      Authors : Margarita Georgieva, Georgi Georgiev, Plamen Mirchev, Eva Filipova, Maria Matova, Sevdalin Belilov, Svetozar Madzhov, Mihaela Hristova : In the period 2017-2023, a survey for the assessment of the phytosanitary condition of sweet chestnut (Castanea sativa) was conducted in a permanent sample plot (PSP) Belasitsa, which is part of the European large-scale network for monitoring the health status of forest ecosystems under the International Co-operative Program ‘Forests’. The PSP is set in a natural chestnut stand in Belasitsa mountain at an altitude of 643 m. Data collected from the first years of the monitoring determined a slight deterioration in the health status of the chestnut trees caused by an infection with the fungal pathogen Cryphonectria parasitica. An improvement in trees’ vitality and lack of active necrosis were observed in 2022-2023. On the wounds, initiation of callus along the wounded edges was reported. Currently, the introduction of new and dangerous invasive insect pests Dryocosmus kuriphilus, Corythucha arcuata, etc., has not been detected. Attacks of both pests could further deteriorate the health status of the sweet chestnut in Belasitsa. HTML XML PDF

  • Soil erosion rates based on anatomical changes in exposed roots - case
           study from southwest Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(3): 27-33
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e116223
      Authors : Eli Pavlova-Traykova, Dimitar Dimitrov : In recent years different methods for soil erosion assessment have been used. Because of its high accuracy in estimations, dendrogeomorphology was selected as one suitable and reliable scientific method to achieve the main goals of this study. The main goal of the study is to date denudation events using anatomical responses of the tree-rings of the roots. We analyze the histological changes that occur in the roots of two tree species, along the river banks of the Sedelska River, which is a tributary of Struma River.The significant differences between homogenous groups of measurements in pre-exposed and exposed roots was established, and it shows a remarkable response of roots to sheet erosion.

  • Health status of the field protective forest belts in Dobrudzha –
           results from the monitoring carried out in 2022

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(3): 17-26
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e116284
      Authors : Yonko Dodev, Georgi Georgiev, Margarita Georgieva, Veselin Ivanov, Sevdalin Belilov, Svetozar Madzhov, Lyubomira Georgieva : In 2022, the health status of the field protective forest belts on the territory of the State Hunting Enterprise Balchik and State Forest Enterprises General Toshevo and Dobrich was monitored. The assessment of tree crown condition covered 7069.3 ha (66% of all field protective belts in Bulgaria). The results showed that 70% of monitored belts were in good condition, 23% - in moderate condition, and 7% - in poor condition. Since 2014 the area of the protective forest belts in poor condition has increased 2.6 times, and 76% of them were situated in Dobrudzha region. Ash belts – Fraxinus excelsior (66% of all belts) and Fraxinus americana (10%) were in the worst conditon. In ash belts a process of crown dieback, premature falling of leaves and drying of whole trees were observed. In individual ash belts, drying reached up to 80% of tree crowns, regardless of their age and origin. The drying was mostly due to the biotic factors – insect pests and fungal pathogens. The protective forest belts of Quercus cerris, Q. petraea, Q., rubra and Gleditschia triacanthos stand out as sustainable tree species. It is necessary to significantly upgrade the methodology by which the monitoring of the health status of trees in the field protective forest belts is currently carried out. In the new methodology a detailed description of the type of data that need to be collected, the methods of assessments, and data reporting formats, have to be included. HTML XML PDF

  • Reforestation pipeline: case for quality management of NIR-region grading
           of Scots pine seeds and FLR-algorithm for information processing

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(3): 5-16
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e114699
      Authors : Tatyana P. Novikova, Evgeniy P. Petrishchev, Arthur I. Novikov : When controlling the process of improving the quality of seeds by separating on a spectrometric basis, the primary information about the state of Scots pine seeds is carried by the wavelengths of optical fluxes and their amplitudes. The algorithm for analyzing the required characteristics of small forest seeds in the infrared range is a corresponding sequence of logical terms that provide the ability to determine the specified seed parameters by a combination of spectral frequencies and light flux amplitudes taken from the corresponding photodetectors. At ΔС = 0.5, the efficiency of the algorithm was 77.6 %, and at ΔС = 0.9, respectively, 99.5 %. In this regard, the choice of ΔС is the result of a compromise between the cost of rejection of high-quality seeds and losses when using unrecognized low-quality seeds and it is made according to the results of relevant experiments.

  • New braconid parasitoids (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) on bark beetles in
           Ihtimanska Sredna Gora Mountain, Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(2): 101-106
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e115809
      Authors : Sevdalin Belilov, Georgi Georgiev : In 2020, two braconid species (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) were found as parasitoids of bark beetles in Pinus sylvestris plantations in Ihtimanska Sredna Gora Mt. Coeloides bostrichorum Giraud was reared from stem samples attacked by Tomicus piniperda and Tomicus minor in the region of Krushovitsa vill. (State Forestry Enterprise Elin Pelin), and Dendrosoter middendorffi (Ratzeburg) – by Ips acuminatus, Pityophthorus pityographus and Pityogenes bistridentatus in the region of Krushovitsa vill. and Golema Rakovitsa vill. (State Game Enterprise Aramliets). Coeloides bostrichorum caused 7.4% mortality of T. piniperda and T. minor, and Dendrosoter middendorffi – 5.6-12.5% of Ips acuminatus, 5.6% of P. bistridentatus, and 2.8% of I. acuminatus, P. pityographus and P. bistridentatus. In the total braconid parasitoid complex, D. middendorffi was the dominant species with a relative share of 87.5%. HTML XML PDF

  • Canopy influence on soil properties in Austrian pine artificial stands

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(2): 91-100
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e104591
      Authors : Plamen Glogov, Simeon Bogdanov, Stela Gyudorova : The aim of the present study is to track changes in the canopy (cover-abundance of the tree layer) of vegetation and cover of the forest litter, and the relationship between them and the dynamics of soil parameters in Austrian pine (Pinus nigra Arn.) plantations. The objects of study are 50-80-year-old artificial plantations of Austrian pine located in the xerothermic oak belt of five mountains in the area of Sofia. In each mountain, three test plots (SPs) were laid out, each measuring 400 m2 (Table 1). The main reason for choosing PP is the cover abundance of the first layer. Within each SP, the following metrics are measured: cover-abundance (%) of vegetation in each layer; the cover of plant litter (%). From all SPs, soil samples were taken from three depths: 0-10 cm, 10-20 cm and 20 -30 cm. An analysis of the content of soil organic matter was carried out, including: total nitrogen (N), the C/N ratio – calculation method, the reaction of the soil solution (pH) in the aqueous extract and the mechanical composition of the soil.The results show that the properties of the studied soils change to a significant extent in accordance with the cover abundance, especially in the first floor of the vegetation. Soil organic matter content, C/N ratio and mechanical composition are the indicators that most clearly reflect the relationship between the canopy and the cover of plant litter on the one hand, and soil properties. The proven, statistically significant differences in the values of these indicators emphasize the role of vegetation in soil-forming processes, the formation and change of soil fertility.

  • Influence of spring and autumn frosts on Impatiens glandulifera
           populations in the Sofia region (Bulgaria)

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(2): 83-90
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e103325
      Authors : Plamen Glogov, Despina Poupaki : The present study aims to analyze and determine to what extent spring and autumn frosts affect the population size and life cycle of this invasive alien species (IAS). The study area is located in the immediate vicinity of the capital Sofia and covers the Iskar River stream and its tributaries in the gorge between Plana and Lozenska Mountains (Southwestern Bulgaria). The study was carried out in the period 2020-2022. Six permanent sample plots (PSP), each measuring 10 m2, were established in characteristic localities of I. glandulifera populations along the Iskar River and its tributaries (Table 1). Each year, during the spring and autumn frosts, the percentage of dead individuals of I. glandulifera relative to the total number of individuals of this species in the PSP was recorded. During the autumn frosts, the number of alive individuals in the following phenological stages was also recorded: flowering; fruiting; dispersal of fruits and seeds; end of growing season. The results show that frosts in the study area did not significantly affect the population size and life cycle of I. glandulifera. The death of the whole population оccurs only in permanent periods of negative daytime temperatures, however a significant part of the individuals at that time are in a generative stage of development. The temperature conditions in the area favor the invasiveness of I. glandulifera, extending the vegetation period of this species and the possibilities for its reproduction and spread. HTML XML PDF

  • Operational properties of forestry mulchers for cleaning field protection
           forest belts after sanitary cuttings

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(2): 59-81
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e109161
      Authors : Konstantin Marinov, Konstantin Kostov, Dimitar Peev : Experimental studies were conducted with forestry mulchers in field protection forest belts and clearings in the North-Eastern region of Bulgaria. Regression models were elaborated to determine the operating performance and fuel consumption of forestry mulchers with a rated power of 70 kW to 245 kW for site preparation of clearings with the amount of wood residues, shoots and bushes from 15 t/ha to 48 t/ha. The mode of influence of the mulcher rotor speed , the concentration of comminuted biomass and the mulching unit power on the performance and fuel consumption were established. When treating clearings with small biomass concentration of 15 t/ha, the productivity of the mulching units with a greater power of 245 kW is 0.392 ha/h, and of those with a smaller power of 70 kW it is 0.086 ha/h. This difference is even greater in clearings with a biomass concentration of 48 t/ha, where the operating productivity of 245 kW mulchers is 0.304 ha/h and that of 70 kW mulchers is 0.021 ha/h. Mulching units with greater power also have a lower relative fuel consumption per unit area. This fact is more pronounced in clearings with a larger amount of wood residues of 48 t/ha, where the fuel consumption of bigger units with a power of 245 kW is 155 l/ha, of units with a medium power of 160 kW it is 217 l /ha, and of units with a smaller power of 70 kW it is 335 l/ha. For treating clearings with relatively less wood residues and shrubs of 15 t/ha, depending on the rated power of mulching units, these fuel costs are respectively 86 l/ha, 122 l/ha and 214 l/ha. The optimal power and rotor revolutions of forestry mulchers when processing cuttings with different concentrations of woody biomass were determined. HTML XML PDF

  • Assessment and cultural ecosystem service mapping in mountain protected
           areas – “Pirin” National park

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(2): 45-57
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e106658
      Authors : Maria Glushkova, Miglena Zhiyanski, Rositsa Yaneva : The assessment and mapping of ecosystems and their services is considered an important action that effectively contributes to proper understanding of how ecosystems support human well-being, and furthermore – to promote the sustainable use of natural resources. The diversity of cultural landscapes, especially in mountain areas, is a significant prerequisite for a variety of cultural ecosystem services that are valuable for the society. This evaluation is the basis for environmental management practices and policymaking. The study presents an approach for assessment and mapping of cultural ecosystem service (CES) “Cultural heritage” that is recognised as important and is provided by mountain protected areas (PAs) in “Pirin” National Park. The data from the Management Plan of “Pirin” NP were used for characterization and biophysical assessment of the condition of forest ecosystems and their potential to provide CESs. The analysis of the results revealed that the conservation regime allowed the territories to preserve a high degree of naturalness and a very good ecological condition as 94.80% of forest ecosystems are assessed with score 4 –“good” condition and 0.44% are with “very good” condition – score 5. The majority of forest ecosystems with “very good” ecological condition are Pinus peuce forests, located mainly on the territory of the reserves “Bayuvi Dupki- Dzhindzhiritsa” and “Yulen”, proving the importance of the protective regime of the territories. Forest ecosystems with average and high capacity to provide ES "Cultural heritage" prevailed, which is consistent with well-preserved and unique nature, the diversity of landscapes, and species richness. Considerable areas were assessed with score 5 – very high capacity, mostly on the territory of the reserves “Bayuvi Dupki- Dzhindzhiritsa” and “Yulen”, and at the foothill of the huts. HTML XML PDF

  • Local taper functions for natural black pine forests  in the Northwestern
           Rhodopes in Bulgaria Local taper functions for black pine

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(2): 37-43
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.22.e103848
      Authors : Filip Ustabashiev : Unlike the heavily deforested Eastern or Low Rhodopes, the Western or High Rhodopes are one of Bulgaria’s main forestry areas, where black pine is widespread and economically important. Based on stem analyzes, an average taper curve for black pine stems in the Northwestern Rhodopes was determined. The method of relative taper curves (echte Ausbauchungsreihen) was used. Taper models based on spline functions and power functions were fitted. A comparison with the official assortment table of Nedyalkov was made. The systematic deviation of the sample stems from the long-used assortment table justifies the development of a local black pine table. HTML XML PDF

  • Epizootic in gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar) population in the field
           protective forest belts of State Hunting Enterprise Balchik in 2022

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(2): 5-12
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e108600
      Authors : Georgi Georgiev, Margarita Georgieva, Plamen Mirchev, Sevdalin Belilov, Maria Matova, Veselin Ivanov, Radoslav Radev, Maria Kirilova : Biological control of gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar) was carried out in 2021 in the field protective forest belts at the territory of the State Hunting Enterprise Balchik by introducing the entomopathogenic fungus Entomophaga maimaiga (Entomophthorales: Entomophthoraceae). In the same year a mortality rate of 26.1% of the pest population was registered. In 2022 E. maimaiga and multiple nuclear polyhedrosis virus of L dispar (LdMNPV) caused a population collapse of the pest in the region. Azygospores of E. maimaiga were reported in the cadavers of about 5% of middle- and late-instar dead host larvae with LdMNPV polyhedra, which is an indirect indication of initial infection by the fungal pathogen. The epizootic of gypsy moth in the Balchik region is the first recorded case of coinfection by E. maimaiga and LdMNPV in Bulgaria. HTML XML PDF

  • 4D monitoring of mountain areas using the UAV-PPK workflow

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(2): 13-35
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.22.e104499
      Authors : Davis Dinkov Dinkov : The mapping and three-dimensional modeling of mountain areas and the study of land cover change dynamics are current tasks in preserving and maintaining protected natural parks and forests. In this context, recent developments in digital photogrammetry using the SfM-MVS method to process captured imagery and the development of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) allow for reducing the costs, time, and the use of human resources and obtaining and repeatable 3D topographic data for moun-tainous regions. We will call this acquired 3D high-resolution topographic data (HRTD) 4D data in the context of an additional temporal component. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the applicability of PPK (Post-Processing Kinematic) direct georeferencing of images captured by UAVs and processed through the SfM-MVS method to obtain HRTDs for 4D land cover analysis. We analyze a 3D HRTD with an acquisition interval of two years for a mountain test area in Plana Mountain near Sofia. The test area has a diverse vegetation cover, including coniferous forest, grassland, hay meadows, shrubs, and single deciduous trees. We conducted multiple surveys of the test area with a budget PPK-UAV configuration (DJI Phantom 4 Pro with a single-frequency PPK-GNSS kit installed) from March 2020 to October 2022. Two autumn surveys from September 2020 and October 2022 were se-lected, which possess the most-good performance on numerical data accuracy. We performed 3D data analysis on 1) Assessment of the accuracy of PPK-SfM-MVS photogrammetry generated topographic data (3D clouds and DSM); 2) Investigation of the errors in the individual specific surfaces (for the individual isolated sections) using the M3C2 tool for comparing and evaluating dense point clouds; 3) Determining land cover changes in the demarcated areas using a surface of differences (DoD).Accuracy analysis showed that the PPK solution provides comparable accuracy (about RMSE3D = 0.067 m for the 2020 data, georeferencing (PPK+1GCP) and RMSE3D about 0.13 m for the 2022 data, georeferencing (PPK only)) like the GCP method.The multi-temporal topographic reconstructions based on UAV- PPK-SfM allowed us to quantify and qualitatively determine the land cover changes that occurred. The UAV-PPK-SfM workflow in the context of 4D land surface monitoring and the results suggested that even low-cost UAV-PPK systems can provide data suitable for measuring geomorphic change at the scale of the acquired data.

  • Green spaces in Sofia – analyses of spatial distribution

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(1): 69-80
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.22.e101911
      Authors : Elena Todorova : Green spaces in urban ecosystems is the main provider of a variety of ecosystem services. It is important for a city that undergoes dynamic changes in size, structure and number of inhabitants to manage bal-anced urban green spaces. Using the geographical information systems, this research investigates the green spaces within the building boundary of Sofia by administrative regions and confirms and demon-strates the spatial deficiencies in their distribution. The proportion of parks and gardens and open green spaces by region is taken into consideration and supplemented with analysis of the density of the tree coverage in the park. The green area per capita is calculated to demonstrate how the coverage with green spaces relates to the population. The results outline some main issues that urban development is facing towards sustainability. If considered by the planning and management of the city this could help respond to the contemporary challenges and adopt policies for a vital, healthy, and attractive environment for the capital’s residents.

  • Short review of collecting technologies and methods in forest harvesting
           residues recovery

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(1): 55-68
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e97620
      Authors : Mohammad Reza Ghaffariyan : Tree felling and processing can create harvesting residues including leaves and twigs (needles), cones, barks, and branches. Collecting forest harvesting residues requires application of suitable machines and working methods. This article is aimed at reviewing the published reports to identify new harvesting machines and working methods for recovering harvesting residues and the current gaps. The scope of review included published research reports/articles from 2017 to 2022 (last five years). This global review results showed that popular methods for residue collection are chipping residues at roadside/landing and integrated biomass recovery. Forwarder, cable yarder and in-field chipper are predominantly applied within various recovery methods depending on ground and stand conditions. Harvesting residues are one of the promising sources for bioenergy production which requires developing efficient and low-cost harvesting systems. Latest research findings indicate that piling harvesting residues by a harvester-pro-cessor can improve the collecting productivity by the forwarder within cut-to-length harvesting opera-tions. Integrating residue biomass recovery with conventional timber supply can reduce the total supply chain cost by 2%. Researchers also recommend applying more climate-friendly technologies and focus-ing on developing new machines with lower fuel consumption and subsequent emissions. Future studies can focus on the following subjects; a) to determine the productivity and cost rates of various residue recovery systems, b) to develop and test technologies with lower fuel consumption rates and c) to find in-novative solutions to utilize thinning materials and best practices to store and process biomass materials.

  • Outcrossing rates in two seed orchards of Pinus nigra Arn. in Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(1): 47-54
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e101560
      Authors : Stanimira Shuleva, Velichko Gagov, Petar Zhelev : Seed orchards are an important source of seeds with improved genetic quality. Here we present results of a study on the genetic composition of seed orchards crop of Austrian black pine (Pinus nigra Arn.). Two seed orchards were included in the study – a clonal seed orchard established near Sliven, and a seedling seed orchard, established in the region of Simitli. The outcrossing rates were higher in the clonal seed orchard (Sliven), 0.873 and 0.806 multi-locus (tm) and single-locus (ts) estimates, respectively. The same values were 0.623 and 0.530, respectively, in the seedling seed orchard (Simitli). The inbreeding coefficient was positive in both cases, but was significantly different from zero in the clonal seed orchard only (0.101 vs. 0.032). Thus, the two studied seed orchards demonstrate different genetic efficiency. The results are discussed in relation to seed orchard management and efficiency. HTML XML PDF

  • Studies on Manna ash (Fraxinus ornus L.) In Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(1): 35-45
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e101459
      Authors : Stela Gyudorova : The purpose of this publication is to review and analyze the main studies of Manna ash in Bulgaria in order to present summarized information and acquire an objective view of the possibilities for proper perception of the importance of this local tree species and its use in various aspects of science and practice in our country. The study covers the period from the second half of the 1940s, when the first specialized journals in the field of forest science were published, until 2022. The focus of the study is on publications related directly or indirectly to various aspects of research on manna ash. The tracking of the chronology of forestry studies in Bulgaria shows trends towards a change in the perception of Manna ash as an inferior species and the search for its benefits for forestry practice, including rethinking its role from one of a weed species into an adjustable competitor, stimulating the regeneration of oaks and others indigenous species in plantations.The role of phytocoenological studies, which in relation to the Manna ash communities, both in natural and artificial forest plantations, with its participation have increased in recent years. With their help, it is possible to trace the stages of successions and fluctuations and behavior of Manna ash in xerothermic oak forests and austian pine crops – its ecological-coenotic strategy towards the main tree species.The studies of Manna ash in Bulgaria in the field of special uses are close to their European analogues and in a number of cases overtake them with new data and discoveries, mostly in terms of biologically active products and antiallergic agents obtained from this plant species, among which we have world patents.

  • A review of Trichogramma Westwood parasitoids on eggs of Thaumetopoea
           pityocampa (Denis & Schiffermüller) in habitats of the Balkan Peninsula
           and Asia Minor

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(1): 23-34
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e101383
      Authors : Plamen Mirchev, Georgi Tsankov, Margarita Georgieva, Gergana Zaemdzhikova, Maria Matova, Georgi Georgiev : Studies on egg parasitoids of the pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) were conducted during the period 1991-2018 in native localities of the pest on the Balkan Peninsula and in Asia Minor. In Bulgaria the biological material (2510 egg batches and 579273 eggs) was collected in 48 host localities. A number of 650 egg batches and 135611 eggs were studied from the Balkan countries (North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and Greece), and in the Asian part of Turkey (Asia Minor), the biological material was examined from nine habitats. Eight species of egg parasitoids (Ooencyrtus pityocampae, Baryscapus servadeii, B. transversalis, Pediobius bruchicida, Anastatus bifasciatus, Eupelmus vesicularis, E. vladimiri and Trichogramma sp.) were found. The total regulating effect of egg parasitoids in Bulgaria was on average 17.6%, and in the other Balkan countries – 24.9%. Trichogramma sp. was found in 63.1% of the analysed samples in Bulgaria and in 55.6% from the neighboring countries. The percent of parasitism of T. pityocampa eggs by Trichogramma sp. was low - on average 0.39% for Bulgaria and 0.73% for the other Balkan countries. The relative share of the species in the total percentage of parasitised eggs for Bulgaria and the other countries was 2.2% and 2.9%, respectively. HTML XML PDF

  • First penetration of pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) in
           North Bulgaria

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(1): 17-22
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e101297
      Authors : Georgi Georgiev, Margarita Georgieva, Plamen Mirchev, Sevdalin Belilov, Gergana Zaemdzhikova, Maria Matova : The pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa) was reported for the first time in North Bul-garia in 2022. Winter nests of the pest were observed in a number of pine plantations in more than 10 sites of four Forest State Enterprises (Troyan, Sevlievo, Gabrovo, Plachkovtsi). The penetration of the pest into the new localities is due to a long-distance dispersion by vehicles. In January 2023, the nests in new localities contained fifth-instar larvae of T. pityocampa. Only about 3% of them were empty as larvae had descended in the soil for pupation. Based on the high population density and presence of old nests in some localities, it was assumed that the pest penetrated into Northern Bulgaria most likely 3-4 years ago. HTML XML PDF

  • Using high precision climate data for wildfire risk assessment

    • Abstract: Silva Balcanica 24(1): 5-16
      DOI : 10.3897/silvabalcanica.24.e101192
      Authors : Elena Todorova, Miglena Zhiyanski, Leonid Todorov : The present study is focused on examining the changes of key weather parameters using detailed daily data for the period 1985-2021 in an area of interest situated in Rila mountain in Bulgaria which is a territory that is prone to wildfires. Using this long-term horizon, the research defines the main climate factor trends and relates them with real events of wildfires by using the Angström index and statistical methods with focus on outlining specific weather conditions that indicate fire risk. As a result, the Angström index was proven to be a reliable source for determining the potential weather conditions for fire occurrence in the area of interest, part of protected area BG0000496 Rilski manastir. Low relative humidity was identified as the main factor influencing fire occurrence in the reviewed real wildfire events. Specific range and behavior of the key weather parameters, influencing wildfire occurrence were detected. These findings could be a good source of information when elaborating a forest fire prevention system and may help for appropriate prioritization of factors and management of resources. HTML XML PDF
