We continue the history of establishing nature conservation areas with the overview of the 5 years between 1961 and 1965. All data in the article belong to nature conservation areas classified by the IUCN. According to this database the most areas in number were established in Germany. 210 of these are nature reserves, 195 are landscape protection districts and 19 are nature parks. Most of the areas belong to IUCN category IV but there were 122 different national categories among the designated areas in this period. Sizes were in the lowest category (0-99 ha). 2 of the Hungarian protected areas were included on the IUCN list, all of them belongs to the category of nature conservation area. We can state that compared to the previous five years the number of established protected areas grew again between 1961 and 1965. Between 1956 and 1960 there were 1553 established while between 1961 and 1965 there were 1864 newly established.


Our studied area lies within the southeastern border of Tura township which is the precious, but last remaining example of the once grove-distributed landscape of Galga Creek. Significant changes had occurred in the last years, drying of the area, and succession processes increased while the number of important and protected plant associations is decreasing. During the past, the state of the area's hydrology and land use had changed gradually. It is important to monitor these changes and their degree for agriculture and for nature conservation, too. In order to stop unfavorable processes, the preparation of a proper conservation plan is necessary, which must be scientifically based. In the present study our main goal was to inspect the already occurred changes in the area's surface through studying military survey maps to provide information for planning.

We continue the history of establishing nature conservation areas with the overview of the 5 years between 1956 and 1960. All data in the article belong to nature conservation areas classified by the IUCN. According to this database the most areas in number were established in Estonia, all of them belonged to protected natural monument. Most of the areas belong to category III (natural monument) but there were 107 different national categories among the designated areas in this period. 12 of the Hungarian protected areas were included on the IUCN list, all of them belongs to the category of nature conservation area. We can state that compared to the previous five years the number of established protected areas grew again between 1956 and 1960. Between 1951 and 19755 there were 791 while between 1956 and 1960 there were 1553 new area established.
