CHANGES IN FOREST COVER OF SZCZECIN LOWLAND FROM THE 16TH TO THE END OF THE 20TH CENTURY, IN RELATION TO SOIL COVER

Pawe│ Pie˝kowski, Marek Podlasi˝ski

 

ABSTRACT



The area of Szczecin Lowland used to be covered by forests. Only the wetlands, flooded areas and coastal sand dunes were not covered by forest. Changes of the use of land depended mostly on soil texture and hypsometry, which can be seen clearly in case of forests - their largest complexes remained on sandy terraces, outwash plains and terminal moraines.

Key words: historical analysis, landscape, forest cover, Pomerania.
