In the Kiskunság, 16 flowering plots in the middle of large agricultural areas were created. Our goal is to evaluate the impact of these plots, for example, whether the frequency of beneficial (and harmful) arthropods will increase, and at what landscape scale. The impact of these plots on the occurrence of birds is an exciting research question: do ground nesting species prefer these sites over agricultural plots? How does it affect nest survival? What species prefer these areas? What is the effect of landscape structure? What effect does the size of the flower plot have? Such information can be used to develop a good practice to protect dramatically declining species such as the Eurasian skylark.
