4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover


Other Site Characteristics

The middle part of the Kemenesht was once populated by turkey oak - sessile oak and hornbeam and oak woodlands. The majority of these forests were cleared long ago and pastures have been forming for animal's grazing. A significant part of the soils at Kemenesht has a bad water management and provides hay of low quality therefore is primarily appropriate for sheep pastures. In the beginning of the past century grazing was prevailing at almost the whole area of the Kemenesht, therefore large pastures were formed. The bustard had a significant nesting population and these short-grass grasslands provided habitat for large ground squirrel populations. Later on, the grazing was pushed into the background and the abandoned pastures were populated with pseudoacacia and spruce. The last large pasture that still exists can be found near Kemenessmjn.

In the parts with heavy grazing of the dry grasslands, valuable pioneer plant communities are formed. At the spots with shrubs the Lanius collurio and the Sylvia nisoria are frequent nesting birds. In the Turkey oak - sessile oak woodland the Lucanus cervus is frequent while the Cerambyx credo is more rare. In parts with a more rare grazing some species typical of the dry grasslands can be found (Adonis vernalis, Orchis morio). The ground squirrel is extinct in the area, the polecat is still present.

Increasing the intensity of the grazing is the most urgent task. Pastures at this area are appropriate primarily for sheep grazing. Following the shrub cleaning and grazing increase the ground squirrel naturalization should also be considered. This action of course could be successful only if the long-term treatment of the pasture is ensured.
