International requirements for forest management as well as legislative acts of the Russian Federation determine the need for biodiversity conservation. On the of complex researches data concerning the consequences of final and selective cutting in climax forests as well in derivative soft-wooded forests the system of measures to preserve biodiversity in wood cutting has been presented. To secure in a legislative way allocation of key biotopes (forest blocs having an utmost importance for biologic biodiversity preservation) as well as forest stands key elements (trees or dead wood having particular importance for biologic diversity preservation) is proposed as one of the ways to preserve biologic diversity. Mentioned key biotopes and forest stands are proposed to single out in cutting sires allocation. Their preserving will not only secure biodiversity preserving but will result in restoring these sites by climax species, prevent soil erosion, hydrologic regime worsening, species replacement. An other words, key biotopes and key elements of stands form a frame for climax coniferous stands raising ecologic situation preserves the same level, cutting negative consequences are minimized. At is noted that key biotopes and stands key elements preservation will not result in volume of forest harvesting cutting down just on the contrary, it will make better harvesting economic showing. The latter is explained by low estimation data of trees being left on cutover sites, especially as concerns marketable structure. For the forests of Perm region it is recommended to work out methodic recommendations for biodiversity preservation in forest harvesting as well as to include requirements to preserve key biotopes and stands key elements in the rules for wood cutting.
