Research Programmes


   One of our big projects deals with the flora and fauna of a pond in Buda Hills, near Budapest. This small lovely lakelet is called “Béka-tó” (Frog-pond). It has a high importance, because it is one of the few shelters of aquatic creatures in that area. Not only the pond itself, but also the surroundings are precious.
   We have made various research there. The concentration of dissolved ions and other minerals was measured once a week, during more than a year. The macro-invertebrate fauna and the vegetation were also studied. We look after some nest-boxes. We have been investigating the insect-fauna of the surrounding habitats, with special regards to the moths.

   The location of our other research is a marshy area in the Őrség National Park, Western Hungary, near the village of Szőce. Due to its climatic traits, Hungary has only a few peat-bogs, which therefore deserve accurate research and strict protection. These moors are the sole habitats of such glacial relicts as the peat-mosses (Sphagnum spp.), or the “predator plant”: the sundew (Drosera rotundifolia). We have been organising summer camps near this bog since 1988, so this is our oldest program. Our activities help the National Park in the conservational treatment and investigation of the area.
   At first the aim of our camps was the removal of the mown herbs from the meadow: this is an essential part of the treatment furthermore it raises respect towards manual labour. Later the schedule of the mowing has changed, and now we concentrate on the exploration of the flora and fauna of the area. We also monitor the effects of mowing on the composition of the flora and on the abundance of Maculinea blue butterflies. Nowadays this one-week summer camp has been the main event of the Club.

   Our third research deals with a threatened species, the stone crayfish (Austropotamobius torrentium). Its habitat is restricted to the clearest, cold streams with high levels of dissolved oxygen. Although this species is the most threatened in Hungary, the exact distribution is still unknown. Many populations inhabit the streams of Börzsöny Mountains, which is situated 50 km northwards from Budapest.
   We have been investigating this crayfish for 20 years. We organise a camp each year in late April or early May to examine the morphometry of this species, the size and condition of some populations. Besides, we try to reveal the exact distribution by searching crayfish in all streams of Börzsöny Mountains, and we would like to know its preference for the streams and their surroundings.
