    In Slovenia European beech is autochthonous and the most economically and ecologically important tree species. The paper presents the characteristics of Slovenian beech forests regarding their natural distribution range, diversity of beech forest types and site conditions, sustainable co-nature-based management and gene pool conservation. New information about observed beech injuries and future perspectives of beech forests in the territory of Slovenia according to predicted climate changes are included. The mesic beech-forest vegetation may be adversely affected by changing environmental conditions predicted by the existing climate-change scenarios, and the area of prevailing beech forests is likely to decrease in the future.
