Loosing agricultural heritage in rural landscape - a case study in Koppány Valley Area, Hungary

The research is focusing on the Big Koppány stream (Hungary), which is designated by local communities as an experimental area for agro-ecological development. This poverty stricken, underdeveloped area is showing symptoms of continuous ecological deterioration (typical in many areas of Hungary and Europe). We introduce the partly surviving agri-cultural heritage of the area. We also introduce Vox Valley Development Association who is decided to demonstrate the possible actions which help the formation of a sustainable agro-ecological system. This paper concentrates on proposals which will help the evolution of such a system.

The manuscript presents land-use change processes based on former military map analyses. Military maps were derived from the 1770s until the 1890s and later from the CORINE Land Cover map. I observed the transition direction of areal distribution of various land uses. Digitalized maps showed 19-20th century land-use conditions; besides them, we created a grouping system which is based on the intensity of land use. We distinguished six land-use types, ranking them according to the anthropogenic influence (1. built-up areas; 2. arable fields; 3. orchards and vineyards; 4. meadows and pastures; 5. forests; 6. wetlands).
