Other Site Characteristics

Old broad-leaved forest with flooded areas by Osum River. This is a former floodplain of Ossum River with the surroundings with dry slopes covered by steppe vegetation or xerophylous oak forests. The floodplain is strongly changed by human impact, but there are good possibilities for restoration.

4.2 Quality and importance

Very important for the conservation of Riparian mixed forests (Habitat 91F0), steppic habitats, fish and reptile species. There are many rare species from the wild flora and fauna. Migration station for birds. One of the last survived forests of Quercus robur.
