Year Established
1994
Purpose
The long-term monitoring study aims to follow the post-fire regeneration of the sand grassland gaps of juniper-poplar forests, and the effect of weather (particularly drought) on the post-fire vegetation dynamics
History
Long-term monitoring on partially burnt sand dune areas of Bugac, Bócsa, and Orgovány have been carried out since 1997, combining space-for- time substitution with long-term permanent plot observations. The Bugac site was burnt in 1976, the Bócsa site in 1993. On these sites the vegetation changes have been recorded since 1997. The Orgovány site was burnt in 2000, and we started the monitoring in 2002. In 2012, the unburnt part of the Bugac site was also burnt. The regular sampling of Bócsa site ended in 2014.
