  • 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

The stream Styggforsån is running through the area and is rushing about 30 metres down over the steep slopes. A dark forest of spruces is growing at the steep slopes along the river, but higher up the pine takes over. The bedrock in this area consists of sandstone, limestone and shale with fossils and it´s a good site to study the geological processes in this area. In earlier times the water have been used for power and small industries have been situated here. The area has a very rich flora of both herbaceous plants and cryptogames, and many of them are rare and redlistded.

4.2 Quality and importance

The forest in this area has developed natural and is not so much affected by human encroachments. By this, the characteristics which distinguish a naturally regenerated forest does exist, namely a richness of coarse trees, dead trees and old windthrows, and those species who belongs here. These circumstances are very unusal in the forest land of today, and many of the species which will be found here are rare, redlisted and threatened. This gives the area very high values. The area has high educational values thanks to the geological formations. The area has been a nature reservate since 1979 and is a very frequently visited area.
