Other Site Characteristics

Two thirds of the site are covered with well-preserved spruce woods. Remaining sections of the site are formed by dwarf-pine as well as subalpine and alpine communities of the flysch zone. These communities harbour several rare and endangered elements of flora and fauna. Babia hora Mt. represents the highest peak of the Outer Western Carpathians and from the geological point of view it is formed by various sandstones of the Magurie flysch type. Its topography is typically moderately undulated. The site is noted for the occurrence of pseudokarstic caves.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is situated within the territory of the PLA Horná Orava and it has been under continual protection since 1974 when it was awarded the status of a national nature reserve. It is also situated within the Horná Orava SPA and forms the core zone of the proposed territory of the Biosphere Reserve Babia hora. It features the primeval forest like communities typical for the montane locations as well as alpine and subalpine communities of the highest flysch peak of the Western Carpathians. The site harbours the only Slovak population of the nationally protected plant species Cerastium alpinum. Springs are marked for the presence of internationally acclaimed species Aconitum firmum subsp. moravicum reaching here the easternmost limit of its natural range.
