    The precipitation amount, form and timing are of particular importance to forest ecosystems. They have a significant impact on water supply, nutrient cycling and dynamics of carbon in the ecosystem. In our study, the precipitation regime of the selected forest stands and gaps in the Snežna jamamanaged forest and in the Rajhenavski Rog virgin forest remnant has been determined. During the 2003 and 2004 growing seasons, throughfall and stemflowwere recorded in the gaps and forest stands. In the years 2001 till 2007, monthly precipitation in the open was measured. Precipitation measurements are rarely performed in forested landscapes, although they constitute an important input variable for process modelling in forest ecosystems. Substitution with measurements from the closest meteorological station is, due to their distance, questionable. Therefore we compared the measured precipitation in the open to daily and monthly precipitation at the Climatological Station Kočevje and EMEP Iskrba Station at Kočevska Reka.
