  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • 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); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

Dinara is the highest mountain in Croatia with the most extensive mountain pastures in the country. It holds the only nesting population of Horned Lark in Croatia. There is a high occurrence of rocky habitats and cliffs in the area. Forest habitats are represented by young submediterranean woods and hop-hornbeam scrub on the hills. Dwarf pine scrub is intensively overgrowing pastures on the top levels of mountain. In the highest part of the mountain (1350 – 1550 m) there is a last complex of old beech forest on Croatian part of the mountain (cca 130 ha) that is important for hole-nesting birds. Lithostratigraphic units represented in this area are limestone and dolomite (lower cretaceous - K1), rudist limestones (cenomanian-maastricht - K21-6), fatlayered limestone and dolomite (middle jurassic - J2), etc. Soils: limestone and dolomite black soil, brown soil on limestone, rocky ground, shallow and medium deep terra rossa, etc. Formed during the Alpine orogenesis; in the geotectonic terms mountain is part of the Outer Dinaric; Dinaric direction of spreading of all relief forms (NW-SE); many speleological objects and other karst forms.

4.2 Quality and importance

- Information on birds population sizes was provided by the Institute for Ornithology (Zavod za ornitologiju, 2013). Numbers presented refer to estimations or exact data based as much as possible on recent surveys (data provided by the Institute staff and their field-work associates) - SPA Dinara holds 12% of national breeding population of Anthus campestris, 8% of Aquila chrysaetos and 5% of Alectoris graeca - SPA Dinara holds the only breeding population of Eremophila alpestris in Croatia (National Red List – CR) - The old beech forest Javorov vrh holds a small population of Dendrocopos leucotos that is partly shared with B&H where beech forests are more widely distributed on northern slopes of the mountain - Dryocopus martius is distributed mostly in black pine forests that have partly been planted and that are overgrowing the open habitats of the mountain which are important for the most of target features of the SPA (Budinski, pers. comm.). Because of that D.martius has status’D’ - Picus canus was registered during ornithological survey but breeding was not confirmed (Budinski, pers. comm.)
