  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation)

Other Site Characteristics

Viitasuo on laaja luonnontilainen ja edustava keidassuo, joka rajautuu Koitajokeen. Suo on linnustollisesti arvokas, sillä pesimälajistoon kuuluu mm. maailmanlaajuisesti uhanalainen mustapyrstökuiri (Limosa limosa). Kattava linnustoinventointi on alueella tekemättä, joten nykyisellä tietämyksellä ei alueella ole edellytyksiä lintudirektiivin mukaiseksi (SPA) suojelukohteeksi. Alueen kankaat ovat osin laajoja suosaarekkeita, jotka ovat olleet metsätalouskäytössä, muutama luonnonmetsän laikku alueelta kuitenkin löytyy. Suo on Pamilon voimalaitoksen säännöstelyn alaisena, mutta säännöstely ei ole merkittävästi vaikuttanut keidassuokompleksin rakenteeseen. Viitasuo muodostaa Kesonsuon Natura-alueen kanssa laaja-alaisen linnustollisesti ja keidassuoluonnon kannalta merkittävän suojelukokonaisuuden. Alueet ovat läheisyytensä lisäksi kytköksissä toisiinsa Koitajoen kautta.

4.2 Quality and importance

Suojelutavoitteen määrittely: Kaikki tietolomakkeen taulukoissa 3.1 ja 3.2 mainitut luontotyypit ja lajit kuuluvat alueen suojeluperusteisiin ja kaikkien niiden suojelutavoitteena on vähintäänkin alueen merkityksen säilyttäminen osana verkostoa. Lisäksi alueen suojelussa ja hoidossa painotetaan seuraavia tavoitteita: -alueella vallitseva luontotyyppien ja lajien sekä niiden elinympäristöjen tila säilytetään turvaamalla luonnon omien prosessien mukainen kehitys, -alueella vallitseva luontotyyppien ja lajien sekä niiden elinympäristöjen tila säilytetään alueen käyttöä ohjaamalla, -luontotyyppien laatua parannetaan ennallistamis- ja hoitotoimenpitein.
