Other Site Characteristics

Das Vogelschutzgebiet Feuchte Ebene-Leithaauen liegt in der Planarstufe inmitten des Wiener Beckens, im Bereich der Flußsysteme von Schwechat, Triesting/Neubach, Piesting, Fischa und Leitha. Hauptinhalte sind neben den Gewässern Feuchtgebiete mit Sukzessions- bzw. Pflegeflächen, u.a. Quellmoorstandorte, weiters Rest-Extensivgrünland, Au- und Bruchgehölze, feuchte Ackerfluren mit mehr oder weniger reicher Brachenausstattung. Die Ausweisung umfaßt einige voneinander getrennte Teilgebiete. Die Morphologie der Fließgewässer ist unterschiedlich; das Gefälle ist mäßig bis relativ gering, durchschnittlich etwa auf 5 km 10m. Oft handelt es sich um alte, teils wieder verwachsene Kanäle, die die Region netzartig durchziehen. Es gibt aber auch noch unverbaute, schmal aubegleitete Flußabschnitte, namentlich an der unteren Fischa, die zunehmend gestaltenden Einflüssen einer anwachsenden Biberpopulation unterliegen. Das Gebiet weist hohe floristische und faunistische Bedeutung auf, hervorgehoben seien z.B. dealpin verbreitete Organismen; allerdings ist diese Bedeutung gegenüber historischen Angaben im Sinken begriffen. Als Beispiel möge das Aussterben der Wiesenotter dienen.

4.2 Quality and importance

Letzte Tieflandsfeuchtgebiete Niederösterreichs neben den Marchauen, dabei isolierte Restvorkommen dealpiner Arten der Tier- und Pflanzenwelt. Eines der letzten Brachvogelbrutgebiete in NÖ. Bedeutendes Wachtelkönigvorkommen.Bedeutung für Wasservogel- und Limicolenzug und vereinzelte Brutversuche (Rotschenkel). Hohe Bedeutung für naturschutzrelevante Greifvögel, brut-, besonders aber auch außerbrutzeitlich. Äußerst wertvolle Vegetationsbestände, vor allem im Grünlandbereich, in Resten vorhanden.
