  • 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

Väätsa loodusala iseloomustavad väärtuslikud rabakooslused, haruldased linnuliigid ning huvitav loodusmaastik. Alast kaks kolmandikku moodustavad rabad (Kotku, Väätsa ja Venevere raba) ja ühe kolmandiku metsaelupaigad. Rabaälvestes esinevad nokkheinakooslused (7150) on üks osa rabale iseloomulikust taimkattekompleksist. Rabalaukaid leidub nii Kotku kui ka Väätsa rabas.

4.2 Quality and importance

Väätsa loodusala kaitstavad elupaigatüübid huumustoitelised järved ja järvikud (3160), rabad (*7110), nokkheinakooslused (7150) ning siirdesoo- ja rabametsad (*91D0) on esinduslikkuselt ja looduskaitseliselt heas seisundis luues head tingimused kaljukotka pesitsusele.
