Abstract: On the western shore of Lake Balaton there was a large territory of wetland, inhabited by diverse aquatic life and many species of birds. During the last century this marshy habitat was dried up by draining and broken into smaller areas. As a consequence the self-purification of the Zala River flowing into Lake Balaton greatly decreased. This situation is linked with the increasing anthropogenic effects and has endangered the water quality of Lake Balaton. Recently, large reservoir systems nearly re-establishing the original conditions have been built. This system gives an opportunity for studying the recolonization and succession types of different living systems.Keywords:
