The book publishes more than a decade of regular research. The fieldwork started in 1993, and its intensive phase lasted until the end of 1998. Since then, additional investigations have been carried out, especially with regard to the beetle fauna.
The habitats (habitat complexes) proposed for protection in the southwestern edge of our county and the southeastern edge of Bács-Kiskun county can be classified into two basic types, either chain habitats (which together form a separable biotope type) or unique natural values.
In this work, we only mention the chain biotopes, we only discuss in more detail those unique natural values, the protection of which we consider absolutely necessary. They are:

In the administrative area of ​​Ásotthalom

  • Süveg-Magyari forest
  • Átokházi peat mine
  • Rívó (forest and swamp)
  • Bilisics (willow bog and pond residue)

in the administrative area of ​​Kelebia

  • Kelebiai fishlake (and the adjoining Kelebiai pasture)
  • Bácsboristai meadow (on the border of Ásotthalom and Kelebia)

In the administrative area of ​​Mórahalom

  • Tanaszi swamp
  • Madarász-lake
  • Nagyszéksós-lake

In the administrative area of ​​Öttömös

  • Baromjárás

For the sake of completeness, we also outline the following areas:

In the administrative area of ​​Ásotthalom

  • Kiss Ferenc Memorial Forest
  • Bog meadow of Ásotthalom TT
  • Bogárzó

In the administrative area of ​​Mórahalom

When characterizing the areas we propose for protection, we processed the data according to uniform criteria. This does not mean uniformity, we just wanted to facilitate transparency.
The preservation of the natural values ​​of the Kőrös-ér becomes understandable when we learn about the vegetation history of the landscape unit. To some extent, this includes drainage, afforestation and various forms of agricultural utilization. After taking stock of the area’s main natural and near-natural habitat types, we tried to outline the ecological landscape utilization of the area. Since the room for maneuver dictated by the interests is extremely narrow, we hope that we have not strayed into the realm of utopia with our suggestions for improvement.
We interpreted the concept of natural value quite broadly. We talk about the natural values ​​of planted forests as well as habitats preserved in a natural or near-natural state. A separate chapter deals with the flora and fauna of the region. Their main ideas:

About the flora of the area:

About “Csodarétekről” located in the wider area of ​​the Körös
More details about the protected and protected plants of the area

About the fauna of the area:

  • Some zoogeographical trends in the shape circles of the genus Carabus
    and based on the distribution of its subspecies
  • Beetles associated with the area’s lawns and woody associations (Coleoptera,
  • It is considered a faunal rarity or is highly endangered
    bbeetles (Coleoptera)
  • Pisces (Pisces)
  • Amphibians (Amphibia)
  • Reptiles (Reptilia)
  • Birds (Aves)
  • Mammals (Mammalia)

The appendix contains some related subtopics that require a more detailed explanation, such as area descriptions, a summary of protected plants and animals, and a fauna list of the birds in the area.

In his book, Ferenc Fodor, an ethnographic researcher-museologist at the Ferenc Móra Museum in Szeged, in his book, in addition to his detailed analysis of the farming conditions of a region in the Csongrád and Bács-Kiskun counties, which includes 31 settlements, uses statistics and census data as sources. The abundant and basic literature on the examined area and topic, mainly ethnographic and historical literature, the local press, as well as archival and museum database documents and documents and images from family collections. The backbone of the description and analysis is provided by the results of Ferenc Fodor’s own field work, carried out for more than two decades, and these are supported by the rich photographic material shown in the volume, selected from the author’s own recordings – writes Dr. András Simon is an ethnographer. In this way, the introductory lines essentially shed light on the book’s content. It should also be added that the published material was written by Ferenc Fodor in 2006. in December, the book version of the PhD dissertation defended in the framework of the European Ethnology doctoral program of Eötvös Loránd University.
