  • 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

Sulitelma comprises a totally roadless landscape in a complete wilderness, without any modern human exploitation except the Same communities grazing their reindeer during the summer season. Sulitelma presents a mountain massif with Sweden's largest glaciers, Salajekna and Stuorrajekna. The landscape is formed by the activities of the glaciers with well developed flutings. The river Lairojåkkå runs through Salajekna and empties into lake Pieskehaure, creating a large expanding delta. The vegetation is characterised by extensive scrubheaths and lush meadows and is one of the richest and botanically most interesting parts of the mountain chain. Species like Luzula artica, Ranunculus lappnonicus, Primula scandinavica and Draba cacuminum are present at the site. The northern part of Sulitelma is part of the world heritage Lapponia.

4.2 Quality and importance

Sulitelma, which is almost entirely above treeline, is comprised of rolling plains, mountain massifs, large lakes and a number of interesting geological formations which witness the effects of glaciation. The alpine grasslands and heaths represent a very rich flora such as Luzula artica, Ranunculus lappnonicus, Primula scandinavica and Draba cacuminum.
