Abstract

During the course of investigation into the vegetation in the area of north-east Hungary, the Bodrogköz, the following communities were found: the Elatinetum alsinastri NAGY et al. 2006. and the Oenanthetum aquaticae NAGY et al. 2006. (new to science), the Butometum umbellatai (KONCZAK 1968) PHILIPPI 1973 and the Veronico anagalloides-Lythretum hyssopifoliae WAGNER EX HOLZNER 1973, and the Iridetum pseudacori EGGLER 1933 (new to Hungary). The Oenanthetum aquaticae community appears sporadically in literature (e.g. SOÓ 1927, PASSARGE 1999), but generally or only as Oenantho aquaticae - Rorippetum amphibiae LOHMAYER 1955 synonyms or invalid names.The Elatinetum alsinastri NAGY et al. 2006. and the Veronico anagalloides-Lythretum hyssopifoliae WAGNER EX HOLZNER 1973 belongs among the Nanocyperion communities; the Oenanthetum aquaticae NAGY et al. 2006. and the Butometum umbellatai (KONCZAK 1968) PHILIPPI 1973 among the Oenanthion aquaticae; and the Iridetum pseudacori EGGLER 1933 among the Magnocaricion communities. The five communities mentioned above are monodominant, herbaceous dominated groups that often occur in islands of natural 300 vegetation in the so-called "agricultural deserts." With the exception of the ridetum pseudacori EGGLER 1933 community they all occur on areas temporarily covered by water, strongly influenced by human or natural interruptions and are initial stadiums in secondary succession. Numerous rare and protected mud plant species can be found in the them. It should be considered an important nature conservation task to artificially develop such habitats.
