Abstract On relatively high natural levees in the Dinkel valley a specific type of grassland is found: the Diantho-Armerietum (Dinkel pastures). This plant community is best developed on dry, nutrient-poor, sandy and relatively young soils. Occasional floodingis essential to the conservation and restoration of Dinkel pastures. The altitude above the bankful discharge water-level is of great importance. The lower zone is strongly influenced by the nutrient-rich surface water, the higher zones are vulnerable tosoil acidification. Maintaining the current flooding frequency is favourable to the conservation of existing Dinkel pastures; a higher frequency favours the development of new ones.
