Other Site Characteristics

The reserve is situated 550 m. a. s.l. on the top of the mountain Tapmokåive. Sparse growing mixed coniferous forest mainly dominated by spruces and large contributions of birches. The vegetation is of a dry lichenshrubtype, but has also some spots with fresh shrub. The trees are low growing and many are droughed or fractured on the top and many are decaying. The frequence of fallen logs are quite high, especially sprucelogs. Due to some older selective cuts are there less pine logs.The forest has also many signs of burnings and the hanging lichens overgrowing the spruces are showing long continuity of trees. Among the treefungus growing on sprucelogs are Fomitopsis rosea, Phellinus nigrolimitatus, Amylocystis lapponica and Phlebia centrifuga. These species are indicating long continuity of naturally fallen ded spruces. Other indicators are the bird Perisoreus infaustus, Tetrao urogallus and cavited trees made by Dryocopus martius.In the western part is a tarn situated surrounded by bogland with sedgevegetation.

4.2 Quality and importance

Kuoratsvare contains sparse growing virgin western taiga comprising burningsuccessions and many natural droughed, fractured and decaying trees housing rare species such as polypores and hanging lichens indicating the old growth.
