Other Site Characteristics

Total area of the site 1298.7 ha (5.11 % of the area of the water catchment of Vidbol River - 25 400 ha). Habitat 6510 - Habitat with restricted distribution in the water catchment area of Vidbol River, due to the decreased population, the lack of intensive and extensive stockbreeding. Main tree composition - Poa sylvicola, Deschampsia caespitosa, Alopecurus pratensis, Knautia arvensis, Sanguisorba officinalis, Lychnis, Ranunculus etc. They are distributed on chernozem soils. Habitat 91E0 A - Widely distributed habitat along the Vidbol river with clearly expressed fragmented character, often broken at places with disconnections caused by afforested with foreign species areas, in the regions of the settlements is cut off. Main tree composition - Alnus glutinosa /50%/, Salix alba /30%/, Salix fragilis/5%/, Salix triandra /10%/ , Populus alba, Populus nigra, Fraxinus oxycarpa /5%/ at places sinlge species of Jglans regia, Prunus cerasifera, Ulmus minor. Main shrubs and grasses composition - Urtica dioica, Aristolochia clematitis, Parietaria erecta,Saponaria officinalis, Galium sp., Agrimonia eupatoria, Rubus sp., Scrophularia sp. In the water part of the habitat along the riverside, there are big spots of riverside vegetation - Typha angustifolia, Caltha sp. Other important habitat types - Ponto-Pannonic riverbank dwarf sedge communities 22.2113 Riverside lines of willow 44.1, Stitchwort ash-alder woods 44.3211, Riverside belts of vegetation 53

4.2 Quality and importance

Region - West tributaries of the Danube River in the region of Timok - Danube Rivers. Sub region - Vidbol with Davidova bara, including its left tributary Gramadska River. The flora region is the Danube plain and part of West Predbalkan. Physical - geographical sub region - West Danube plain. Water catchment with area 330 sq. km and average altitude 254 m. a.s.l. Representative for the water catchment of Vidbol River are the riverside habitats 91E0 and 91F0, situated along the treeless riverbed between the villages Tzar Shishmanovo and Valchek. The riverside habitat has well developed vertical structure and it is disconnected at the settlements areas. The ihthiofauna of Vidbol River is extremely rich for a river of such a size. found are 15 fish species in total, of which 4 are included in Annex 2 of Directive 92/43.
