The earlier introduction of intensive forest management in the south has probably reduced the species numbers and increased the risk of extinction for forest dependent species due to fragmentation and change in forest structure. The differences between regions stress that different conservations strategies as well as forest management strategies might be needed to prevent loss of biodiversity, both nationally and locally. In addition, the relative importance of stand and landscape factors remains rather unclear. However, my result indicates an interplay between the two.
