Its western and northern parts are dominated by communities with the Tufted Sedge, which however do not form the characteristic tufts there. The eastern part is covered mainly by the Lesser Pond-sedge and the Reed Canary-grass, with addition of vegetation that is typical of wet meadows.

The highest parts of the area are meadows mown several times a year. Thanks to the heterogeneous habitat, this area is characterised by especially high biodiversity.

The Laskowiec-Zajki location is known among birders as one of the most scenic and attractive bird-watching sites. It is very important for migrating waders.
