Other Site Characteristics

The site is a delta in the river Laisälven. The delta is situated dy the foot of the montains which gives the site a spectacular surrounding. The delta has been subjected to a long re-occuring management through mowing. The mowing in these area started during the late 1600 centuary. The hay was stored in barns that are very characteristic for the county of Norrbotten. These barns are still used at Yraft and today the area is a nature reserve that is managed by the landowners. The delta is also important for many bird species that stage on there way to the montains or breed at the site.

4.2 Quality and importance

The area is one of the few alluvial meadows that still are managed in Norrbotten. The history of mowing is long in the area and the continuity of management is long. It could therefore serve as a site that shows us a part of our history and at the same time a lot of plant species are favoured by the mowing. If the management should stop, salix would soon grow all over the place. The area is very important for many birds that breed and stage at the site.
