Other Site Characteristics

Bräcke ängar is situated on a west-facing slope by the lake Bräcketjärn. The site represents a remnant of the former old agricultural landscape including a mosaic of small parts of arable land and grazed meadows surrounded by herb-rich deciduous forests. The bedrock is dominated by base-rich and easily-weathered rocks.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is of great importance for threatened species. The farmed landscape is well managed and includes rich broadleaved forests of great importance for Dendrocopus leucotus and a number of threatened land-mollusc species and lichens.
