Other Site Characteristics

The site is part of former Danube floodplain and includes marshes, water bodies and islands. The dominant vegetation belongs to Populus sp. And Salix sp. Anthropologically influenced – clear cutting of floodplain forest and heir conversion into intensive poplar plantations, dicing of Danube, draining of marshes or converting into fishponds, draining of lands and converting into arable lands.

4.2 Quality and importance

One of the “stepping stone” sites along Danube River. Big potential for restoration of former flood plane.
