Abstract: The authors provide new floristical data of well-defined localities, mostly along the water-courses and those of high groundwater level, within the administrative boundaries of the town of Balassagyarmat, Nógrád county, Hungary, with brief site descriptions and assessments of the naturalness of the vegetation of 12 sites. The authors refer to the results of former surveys concerning the area, and discuss the changes in the flora and vegetation during the past decades. The main source of degradation is the sinking groundwater table and the drying-out of the area, coupled with effects of commercial forestry activity and other forms of human influence.
