Abstract: Lake Bence-tó has been investigated by the authors since its discovery in 1980. Detailed vegetation map of the area has been prepared, with the indication of 11 associations currently existing in the area. Using former data and our own observation, a species list consisting of 130 plants has been prepared, 12 of these are protected. The number of the days, when open water covers the area, has been decreasing from year to year. By 1995 18 species became extinct from the lake, 4 of these were protected. Weeds from arable lands tend to intrude deeper and deeper into the area, while the average nature conservation values of the associations together with the number and the ratio of species requiring permanent water supply is decreasing. A long-term pre-reconstructional research is currently conducted by the authors in the area. This paper presents the results of the first phase of their project.
