Other Site Characteristics

The total are of the site is 2061.3 ha (8.12 % of the area of the water catchment of Vidbol River). Habitat 91M0 x 91I0 - Habitat massively distributed along the high plains above the riverside zone of Vidbol on dry loess base with altitude 100-200 m. a.s.l. Often in combination with 91I0. Main tree species - Querqus ceris /40%/, Q. fraineto/ 50%/, Tilia argentea /10%/, Acer campestre /singly/, Fraxinus ornus /singly/, Acer tataricum/very distibuted/. In the grass composition dominate Geum urbanum, Lathyrus niger, Tanacetum corymbosum, Polygonatum latifolium.Hieracium sp., Ligustrum vulgare, Crataegus monogina, Pirus sp., Campanula trachelium, Cotinus cogigria.

4.2 Quality and importance

Region - West tributaries of Danube in the region of Timok River - Danube River. Sub-region water catchment Vidbol with Davidova bara including its left tributary Gramadska River. Flora region - 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. In this site are distributed some of the biggest in area and compact habitats 91I0 and 91M0. They are part of the well preserved plain oak forests in the region of the Vidin Rivers; they form the well presented forest coverage in the west part of the Danube plain. Even though these forests are coppys they have almost identically preserved natural appearance of the tree species composition. The forests are with average age of 40 - 50 years.
