KISKUN LTER: Grassland monitoring 1: Small scale secondary grassland monitoring (FH40)
The area was used as small-scale ploughland and vineyards between app. 1900 and 1960. From 1960 it was gradually abandoned and became a part of the Kiskunsag National Park. We distinguished 4 age-groups of old-fields according to the time of the abandonment: 1–6, 7–11, 12–25 és 26–35 years old abandoned fields in year 2000. In every age-group 10–10 (total 40) 4 m × 4 m large permanent vegetation survey plot were established. We made vegetation survey (presence and covere of every vascular plant species) in the year 2000, 2008, 2010, 2015, 2017 and 2020.
