Özet

Acting, according to versatile benefiting principle in making, plans for forest management requires a very comprehensive knowledge. It requires more detailed inventory compared with traditional forest management plans. This study focused on how a flora-fauna inventory is conducted and how the obtained findings are employed in planning by plotting them on forest stand maps. The present study is a part of GEF II project supported by World Bank and it was conducted in Isparta-Yukangokdere Enterprise Planning Unit (YEPU) in which biological diversity is reflected on forest management plans. The data, which were obtained in field studies conducted between 2006 and 2008 in YEPU. were plotted on the maps produced by employing Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Distribution areas of determining species. which were specified as target species among them, were shown on the maps. Consequently, the important habitats for these species were specified as usage areas with Natural Protection Function by entering them into positional database.
