The article discusses the fish-recycling programs by the Department of Fish and Wildlife in Oregon for the management, breeding and preservation of the trout, steelhead. It notes the 2,500 artificially bred steelhead at the Nehalem River Hatchery which has been prepared to spawn in the winter of 2010. Moreover, a concern among the locals have given some worries to the wild as recycling steelhead would dilute the genes of the native ones since hatchery bred steelheads are genetically inferior.

    In the modern forestry paradigm, many factors influence the amount of coarse woody debris (CWD). The present paper analyzes the effects of both local (national) programs (special functions of forests) and European programs (Natura 2000 sites), as well as the individual characteristics of forest...
