Description

The sand dunes in Lower Austria developed 35,000 to 10,000 years ago.
This gigapan was taken in the area of Oberweiden, close to Vienna, where one of the biggest elevations of Lower Austria┬┤s sand dunes can be found.
Sand dunes are a valuable natural habitat that offers excellent living conditions for rare species. Due to the fact that only special animal and plant species can thrive in sand habitats quite a lot of these species are in danger of extinction.
Because of the ecological importance the Pannonian Sand dunes were included in the EU list of priority habitats.
There are two sand-lawn-biotops: "Festucetum vaginatae" (Astragalo austriaci-Festucetum sulcatae)
and "Thymo angustifolii-Corynephoretum"
