Other Site Characteristics

Proposed territory of European importance The Horný tok Tople consists of two polygons. The first polygon at the top of the flow begins between the villages of Gerlachov and ends west of Bardejov. The second polygon begins under Bardejovská Nová Ves and ends near the Lužany near th Topľa. The river has a high flow rate and hydrogeological productivity. From the point of view of the type of outflow regime, Topľa belongs to the highland-lowland region with a rainwater-snow outflow with the culmination of the river outflowes in March or April. The Topľa river is the second main river line of the river system that forms Bodrog and the main tributary stream of Ondava in the Tisa river collection area. Geomorphologically proposed area of Topľa belongs to the Ondavská vrchovina whole and the wider area of the proposed protected area is built by an external flysch, where the Magurská tectonic unit is represented by the Bystrická and Račianska rock bodies. This unit became the source of fluvial sediments (sand-gravelstones and sandy claystones) which were deposited in the valley of the river Topľa in the form of low terraces. These terraces are regularly inundated during spring floods and their transition to the flood-plain valley is usually smooth. The Topľa River is the axis of the protected area and accompanies it with the stands of the ashen-alder sub-mountain floodplain forests, which complement the high-grass communities typical for wet meadows, bank vegetation of Petasites officinalis forests and rare and woody vegetation with Myricaria germanica. The site is a significant migratory biocorridor in the bird's way, while at the once-and it is a significant breeding place of several avifauna species. The occurrence of many animal species of European significance and national significance has been noticed in the area, from the birds of Alcedo atthis, Ciconia ciconia, Picus canus, Egretta alba, the presence of the Lutra lutra from the mammals, the presence of the Casteo fiber, the amphibians Bombina variegata, Vertigo angustior and i. Significant is the representation of fish, overall in the flow of Tople recorded so far 22 species, of species of European importance eg. Gobio albipinatus, G. kessleri, Zingel streber.

4.2 Quality and importance

The area is a complex of habitats in which ash-alder floodplain forests situated at the foot of a mountains are complemented by high-herbaceous communities of wet meadows, bank vegetation of Petasites officinalis and strawed also woody vegetation with Myricaria germanica. It is characterized by the high diversity of animal species, particularly significant is the representation of species temporarily and permanently bound to the aquatic environment. Many species of national importance were noticed, from bats, for example, Myotis daubentonii, from reptiles Natrix natrix, Salamandra, Salamandra, from amphibians Bufo viridis, Hyla arborea, Rana ridibunda and others.
