Other Site Characteristics

The open character of dry grassland habitats and of expansive mesophile meadows was caused by grazing of sheep and cattle over a hundered of years period. Discontinuation of the traditional cultivation started succession of dense brier associations. On the other hand dry grassland steppe on exposed cliffs and steep parts of the hills has primary character.Very rich in species are the submediterranean assiciations of shrubs (Dictamnus albus, Geranium sanguineum) along the edge of the thermophilous oak woods with Quercus pubescens ("Waldsteppe")

4.2 Quality and importance

Mosaic of chalk grassland and xerothermophylic shrubs on the steep, southwalk face of isolated calcareous rocks and hills (which although south of the Danube are geologically part of the Carpathian chain) are under the influence of the continental chain are under the influence of the continental pannonic climate. Pinus and Quercus/Carpinus forest on the western, northern and eastern slopes. The eastern part of the "Hundsheimer Berge" is also characterized by silicate soils and silicate soils and silicate dry grass land.

6.3 Conservation measures (optional)

· Economic activities include agriculture (cereal cultures, wine yards), forestry and hunting.· Necessity of a longtime management of the nature reserve by extensive grazing: grazing by sheep all over the dry grass areas since 1985, grazing by cattle should be start within the next few years.· Cut of huge and dense brier associations and local fire ecology to preserve the important dry grassland ecosystems · Development of a nature management concept for the whole region of the "Hundsheimer Berge"· Scientific basic research (fauna, flora, ecology of animal and plant communities, primary ans secondary productivity)
