Other Site Characteristics

The territory is a fragment of the Ptipyat river valley in its lower reach, with the total length of over 50 km and the width from 2 up to 8.5 km between the towns of Petrikov and Mozyr. Within the territory there is a fragment of the riverbed, which is more than 80 km long. The average width of the river bed is from 200 up to 300 m; the riverbed completely remains in its natural condition. The river forms large meanders, numerous large and small bayous, the territory is indented a lot by creases. Within the territory there are more than 100 floodplain bayou-lakes. The territory is hardly available because of numerous creases and bayous. In spring the significant area is flooded by floodwaters. Open meadow, scrub communities and bogs prevail within the territory (about 70%). Forests and thin forests occupy about 25% of the territory. The forests are presented by several massifs on both banks of the river. Waterbodies and watercourses occupy about 10% of the territory. Natural or slightly transformed territories occupy over 80% of the total area.

4.2 Quality and importance

The territory is a unique river valley with exceptional richness of meadow, forest and wetland habitats. About 30 habitats, included into Resolution No 4 have been identified here, fore more than half of which this territory is specially important for their conservation in Belarus.The territory is of great importance for a number of species. The flora and fauna of the territory include about 90 protected species of plants and animals. Over 60 species are included into Resolution No 6. The following species nest here: Ixobrychus minutus, Aquila pomarina, Pernis apivorus, Ciconia nigra, Grus grus, Gallinago media, Dendrocopos leucotos, Caprimulgus europaeus, Lullula arborea, and a number of other species. The number of some species is 1% or more of the national population. These are the following species: Botaurus stellaris, Circus aeruginosus, Crex crex, Chlidonias niger, Alcedo atthis, etc. The number of such species as: Dendrocopos medius, Sterna albifrons, Lanius collurio, Luscinia svecica is over 2%; Sylvia nisoria and Xenus cinereus, Ficedula albicollis is over 5 % of the national population. The territory is the most important habitat of a number of fish species: Gobio albipinnatus, Aspius aspius, Eudontomyzon mariae, Pelecus cultratus, Proterorhinus marmoratus, Gymnocephalus baloni, butterflies: Maculinea teleius, Maculinea nausithous, plants: Jurinea cyanoides.
