Subject and Keywords:
An analysis has been carried out of the typological and spatial boundaries between deciduous forest communities of the Potentillo albae-Qucrcetum and TilioCarpinetum types, and the old range has been reconstructed of a selected oak wood in the Bialowieża Primaeval Forest. It has been demonstrated that the encroachment of Carpinus betutus undergrowth causes thermo- and heliophilous species to retreat, which leads on to the decline of the oak-wood composition of species at the biochore edges and shrinking of the oakwood area. This process may be the cause of the disappearance of oak-wood sites in north-eastern Poland.
