Other Site Characteristics

Båtöfjärden Nature Reserve (895 ha) is situated in Luleå's archipelago, 31 km north-east of the city of Luleå. It consists of three islands. Hällhamnsklippan (2 ha) is a boulder rich island, vegetated by shrubs and low growing deciduous trees. Stora Båtöklippan (22.2 ha) and Lilla Båtöklippan (6.3 ha) are exposed to strong south-east winds and present a good example of the effects of wave action. Well developed shingle fields and washed slabs of bedrock are characteristic of these islands. The vegetation communities on the islands are species poor, with juniper bushes and heath-like vegetation. The soils are better developed on the central part of Stora Båtöklippan, allowing sparse pine forests to develop.

4.2 Quality and importance

There is little human disturbance and the islands are an important refugium for the archipelago's flora and fauna. The vegetation is influenced by the brackish water environment and the ongoing land upheaval which results in a succession of different vegetation types. These land upheaval pioneer vegetation communities, which are also exposed to harsh (windy and dry) climate, are unique from an ecological perspective. Several of the islands support a rich avian fauna. The islands are also interesting from a geomorphologic perspective as there are many examples of how upheaval landforms are affected by wind and wave action.
