Results achieved by November 2019
- Elimination of shrubs followed by grazing helped to improve population (higher numbers and vitality) of Pulsatilla grandis. Grazed areas are gradually taking the form of traditional pastoral landscape (diverse mosaic of low-grazed grassland, tall-forb patches formed mainly by grazing weeds and scattered shrubs and trees).
- Disturbance by military vehicles suppressed significantly the resprouting of cleared shrubs. Gradual spreading of steppe plants into these, formerly species-poor, clearings has been encountered, including massive propagation of endangered plant Alcea biennis. Two critically endangered (Heliotropium europaeum, Polycnemum majus) and one endangered plant (Stachys annua) were found to profit from intensive disturbances.
- Restoration of habitat 2330 was launched at 40 ha. The first phase of succession leads to restoration of the habitat 2330. Typical species typical for this habitat have pioneer life strategy and appear first in the restored land. Habitats will be gradually enriched for other psammophytes, leading to the priority habitat 6260*.
- Measures taken to suppress the resprouting of black locust seem to be successful, about ¾ of suckers are already dead. Other expanding and resprouting woody species (e.g. Populus tremula) were removed mechanically and this approach will continue.
- Most of patches with mechanically exposed sand are being colonized by target species (e.g. Silene viscosa, Corynephorus canescens). This process is accelerated by movement of military vehicles, which also helped to save the only population of Gagea bohemica.
Podyji National Park (Masovicka strelnice, Havranicke vresoviste)
- Grazing of wild horses caused the decline in occurrence of expansive grass Calamagrostis epigeios, and supported the population of Pusatilla grandis.
- Grazing helped to suppress the resprouting of shrubs and improved the physiognomy of vegetation towards typical steppe pastures.
Increasing of attractiveness of the project sites for general public and promotion of alternative ways of management of the sites influenced at the past by military activities:
- Promoting is going on via project website and social media as well as via public actions and events for specific stakeholder groups.
- Until now, over 18 000 people have been reached by the website and over 900 people visited at least one of the public actions.
