In seral stages of beech forests in Hungary, the expected number of species per unit area showed an increasing trend from clear-cut to climax forest, but in the middle of the series there were no significant differences between stages. Agglomerative cluster analysis revealed 3 main groups of birds: shrub species, climax ones and habitat generalists. Specialization of the species was highest in the climax stage; in the middle part of the series mostly habitat generalists were found. -from Authors
