After the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699, the Habsburg Monarchy gained control over territories between the rivers Drava, Sava and Danube, that were split between civilian and military administration in the second half of the 18th century, known as Civil Slavonia (The Kingdom of Slavonia) under feudal rule and Military Slavonia (The Slavonian Military Frontier) under military and direct imperial rule. The Slavonian Military Frontier, which was situated in the Posavina region along the river Sava, bordering the Ottoman Empire to the south, was very rich in alluvial, floodplain forests, which were put under imperial protection and strict communal use with various regulations, that lasted until the industrialization and disolving of the Military Frontier system in the second half of the 19th century. This research focuses on the impact of these regulations on the relationship between the military authorities, local population and their environment in the part of the Slavonian Military Frontier which was under the administration of the 7th Brod Grenzer Regiment. Besides the relationship, it gives also an analysis of the many environmental and social changes and their stages that were described through various sources in the period between the mid-18th and mid-19th century. The research is based upon an environmental approach to early modern history and the history of forestry, that gives also a short theoretical summary on the field of environmental history and a comparisson between different forestry models in early modern societies around the world (French, German and Japanese models) with environmental and historical phenomenons that concern the forests and population of the Slavonian Military Frontier in the 18th and 19th century.
