  • Group: A = Amphibians, B = Birds, F = Fish, I = Invertebrates, M = Mammals, P = Plants, R = Reptiles
  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • 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

The site is located in the Mediterranean part of Croatia and is partly protected as significan landscape. It is a deep canyon of river Čikola, occasionally up to 170 m deep. River Čikola originates below Svilaja mountain and is the bigest tributary of the river Krka. The site passes through the town of Drniš. It is an important site for several freshwater fish species.

4.2 Quality and importance

- one of three important sites for Phoxinellus dalmaticus, Croatian endemic species with the biggest part of Croatian population (45-60%) - important site for Aulopyge huegelii
