Other Site Characteristics

The Lom river has fresh water rubble bottom and embankment along whole course of the river. There is no dams and sources of polution. Preserved natural forest vegetation and disturbed grassland and pastures.

4.2 Quality and importance

On the right slope of asymmetric Lom valley there is preserved mixed forest of Pannonian-Balkanic turkey oak-sessile oak forests ( 91MO) but on the left slope there is Lowland hay meadows (Alopecurus pratensis, Sanguisorba officinalis 6510). Near the village of Rogletz the river has two channels which surround an island occupied with Alluvial forests with Alnus glutinosa and Fraxinus excelsior (Alno-Padion, Alnion incanae, Salicion albae) *91E0. In the river are well presented societies of rooted to the bottom macrophytes (Water courses of plain to mountain levels with the Ranunculion fluitantis and Callitricho-Batrachion vegetation - 3260). GPS - N 23 40`32`` E 022 55`57``.The river forms a lot of islands near Kriva bara occupied with Alluvial forests with Alnus glutinosa and Fraxinus excelsior (Alno-Padion, Alnion incanae, Salicion albae) *91E0. On the right bank of the river there are preserved mixed forest Pannonian-Balkanic turkey oak-sessile oak forests ( 91MO). In front of Vasiliovtzi village there is a Moesian silver lime woods (91Z0) with high conservational value. Reka Lom se harakterizira s mnogo bogat vidov sastav na ihtiofaunata i mnogo dobro sastoianie na populaciite na otdelnite vidove. Ustanoveni sa obshto 17 vida ribi, ot koito 4 sa vkliucheni v Prilojenie 2 na Direktiva 92/43.
