Successional changes of vegetation on an abandoned farm in the "Hyirseg' region (E. Hungary) were studied between 1990 and 1992. The correlation of the ecological indicator values of the releves with climatic records and soil characteristics was investigated. 1990 and 1992 were very dry years while 1991 was a humid one. However, the indicator values reflecting the climatic background changed only slightly. The same is true for the soil reaction value but soil sampling revealed significant changes in pH. The most definite change was detected in the nitrogen value, indicating a declining supply of available nitrogen. Post-disturbance management which caused significant differences in composition and abundance had only a moderate, if any, effect on the indicator values. -from Authors
