Ancient-forest plant species are well known indicators of the ecological value of forests. We statistically derived a list of 66 fc,rest plant species which are associated with ancient forest habitat in Western Belgium. Most of these species are so called true forest species. Within our study area we found no subregional differences in affinity for ancient forest.
