Total Habitat Cover


Other Site Characteristics

Stormyran-Lommyran is a large (approx 1000 ha), heterogeneous area. A great amont of the area consists of valuable mire (aapamires 57%) and woodland habitat ( western taiga 43%), with a high species diversity. Stormyran-Lommyran has well developed, string flark-fens partly with terraced flark-pools. Unusually large areas of pine-marsh and swampforest exist in the area. On the aapamires there are a lot of vascular plants dependent on alkaline, i .e. Rhynchospora fusca, Dactylorhiza incarnata, Dactylorhiza traunsteineri and Hammarbya paludosa. The mire is also of great importance for several species such as wolf lichen, Letharia vulpina. The Stormyran-Lommyran area is one of the richest sites in the County of Västernorrland when wolf lichen are concerned. Out on the open mires their are an abundance of old pine snags, an extremely important substrate for the wolf lichen. Due to removal of pine snags in the past in order to achieve fire suppression, their is a lack of suitable substrate for the lichen, as well for other species which dwells in pine snags. The forest is mostly dominated by scots pine, with a high degree of norway spruce. The amount of spruce in the area is also due to earlier fire suppression, which has led to a higher degree of shade intolerant species. Naturally the area would be under natural disturbance regimes of forest fire, with a supposed frequency of one fire each 100 year. Some smaller stands even more frequently, but of low intensity, due to a shorter timespan to build up any greater amount of fuel. Normally, spruce would not be able to reach any high age in such a stand, cause they can´t survive forest fire as pine can. There are a abundance of old snags with up to 4 different fire scars. In some stands their are abundant with old pine trees (approx 250-300 years old). In some parts of the area there are also a great amount of dead downed wood. In those parts their are several species of wood-living fungies, of which several are red-listed in Sweden.

4.2 Quality and importance

Stormyran-Lommyran has a well developed string flark-fens, with terraced flark pools. The aapamire is mostly unaffected by human influence. The area consist of large areas with natural forest stands, dominated by scots pine. The forest has not been affected by modern forestry for a long time, and the different forest stands has developed in to a natural condition, thus without natural disturbance regimes, such as forest fire. An important task in the management of the site to reintroduce natural disturbance regimes.
