Abstract

About one-fourth of the Hungarian Black stork (Ciconia nigra (L.)) population nests in floodplains. The most important floodplain habitat in Hungary is the Gemenc area, a part of the Danube-Drava National Park. The sustainable use of floodplains has become a main issue. Conservation of the Black stork requires the maintenance of suitable habitats. The paper provides an overview of the forestry and water management activities and highlights hydrological features of the floodplains in relation to the Black stork population.
