Governance of forest habitat types and species in the selected Natura 2000 sites alongside Mura

The project addresses forest habitat types (GHT) 91F0 and 91E0 in unfavorable condition. Condition of GHT 91F0 is connected with decrease of groundwater level and shortening of the flooding period (measures implemented on Mura River and farmlands in 60s and 70s); GHT 91E0 is affected due to inappropriate management. Problems of species reflect these causes: amphibians are threatened by disappearance of water and swamp habitats, beetles by disappearance of oak trees and variable quantity of dead wood. Otter and beaver, both new in GHT, are not studied enough yet; condition of the selected bird species is also unknown. The aim of the project is to analyze factors affecting conditions of GHT and selected amphibian and beetle species as well as beaver and otter on several locations along Mura River, to prepare management plans for test areas or respectively complexes Murska Šuma and Gornja Bistrica on the basis of findings and to carry out protective measures for them. In the framework of the project will be additionally established monitoring of birds in unknown condition and monitoring of measures. Information and notification as a separate complex will take place during the entire project duration.
