  • 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)

3.2 Species referred to in Article 4 of Directive 2009/147/EC and listed in Annex II of Directive 92/43/EEC and site evaluation for them

  • Group: A = Amphibians, B = Birds, F = Fish, I = Invertebrates, M = Mammals, P = Plants, R = Reptiles
  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • 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); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

The creek Maljan flows from the lake Malsjön to the lake Holmsjön, and the length of the creek is approx. 7 km, and the creek drops in elevation as much as 130 m at that distance. The watershed area is 22 km² and consists mostly of forest land with mires and bogs (11%), lakes (5%) and open ground (1%). The creek's surroundings is mostly forest land with mires and bogs. The creek Maljan can be caracterized as a forest creek with very nutrient-low water and with markedly colored water with weak resistance against acidification.Over the lake Malsjön lime has been spread on a regular basis, since 1989. The creek, Maljan, has previously been used for logdriving. Their has also been a saw-mill and a water-mill in the creek. The creek is relatively unaffected by humans, but their are some parts of the creek which needs to be restored from the logdriving activity. The creek Maljan has a very healthy population of freshwater pearl mussel, Margaritifera margaritifera, with good regeneration capacity. The fish fauna is dominated by brown trout Salmo trutta.
