Wet meadows and kettle holes
Wetlands and kettle holes are special habitats – areas of transition, where dry and permanently wet regions interchange. They are located in the vicinity of river valleys, lakes and valleys in arable landscapes. The diversity of their local plant and animal species is astounding. As early as the beginning of the 19th Century numerous wet meadows were transformed by extensive land improvement measures in cultivated meadows and fields. Hydrophilic animal and plant species have disappeared from these areas.
