Abstract (in english)
   Forest edges consist of specific ecotone plant associations. Their species composition reflects conditions within the local environment and the character of the surrounding landscape, as well as the history of the given area. This article aims to ascertain the importance of local conditions and the characteristics of the surrounding landscape on species composition. The results show that species composition at forest edges is negatively influenced by agricultural use of the surrounding landscape and differs with respect to the north-south gradient of slope orientation. In terms of their species composition, forest edges represent important refuges for certain plant species that have already disappeared from the surrounding landscape.
