Description We have studied two 42 years old windbreaks functioning as biocorridors and one TSES biocorridor composed of a woody strip planted 18 years ago. These biocorridors are connected to semi-natural forests which are expected to be source areas of forest species for dispersal or migration via these landscape structures. Thorough field research, including vegetation and mollusc sampling, and subsequent data processing using regression analyses brought interesting results. The current distribution pattern of forest species in the biocorridors reflects their recent spread from source forests related to relatively low age of corridors. Diversity of forest plant species grows up and some of them evidently do migrate through the biocorridors. Similar, though not so obvious, is the pattern of molluscs.
