Other Site Characteristics

In the Marchfeld the vast central Eurasian steppes over glacial and postglacial sands reach their eastern boundary.

4.2 Quality and importance

In the Marchfeld (and small areas of Burgenland) the vast central Eurasian steppes over glacial and postglacial sands reach their eastern boundary. To date this is the only area in Austria with remnants of very important habitats for the highly specialised fauna and flora of sand dunes. These habitats could and should be preserved and , when necessary, restored by approriate management measures.Even where the steppes were replaced by arable land they often still provide suitable habitats for these specialised organisms, such as rare species of the segetal flora, or birds such as Quail, Corn Bunting, Red-Backed Shrike or Skylark.
