    Rodents were monitored during two successive years on clearings with artificial plantations. Under influence of beech mast year Apodemus flavicollis was dominant in Beskydy Mts but Myodes glareolus in Jeseniky Mts. The diversity and equitability was similar in both (Jeseniky Mts - 1.63, Beskydy Mts - 1.49; 0.84 resp. 0.72). Notable was the high dominance of Microtus agrestis (23 resp. 27%) in both. Abundance of the dominant species was synchronized. Canonic correspondence analyses (CCA) of clearing characteristics show the preferences of M. agrestis for higher elevation, more grassy and grassy wastage (higher humidity) environment. This was above all problem of emission clearings. As to M. glareolus, forest weeds preferably of Rubus sp. were responsible for its dominance. These results contribute to understand rodent habitat preferences and help in prevention against their impact by the way of herb layer management.
