Nature reserve Moravian

Nature Reserve Dry Dora

General Information

These are natural slope beech areas as old as 150years and left to natural development. This area was declared a nature reserve already in 1969 and re-declared in 2009. The total area is 20,10ha.

Subject of Protection

The protected issue of the reserve is the remaining natural growth typical for Oderské highlands, including rock outcrops and occurence of especially protected species.

Living Nature

Flowery beech forests coming into rubble forests include elmtrees (Ulmus glabra), maples (Acer psedoplatanus), limes (Tilia cordata) and hornbeams (Carpinus betulus). All these trees are characteristic for the Low Jeseník area and are of extraordninary forest importance. The growth as old as 150 years is left to natural regeneration. The local beech forests are one of the localities of apolloes (Parnassius mnemosyne), and further rare butterflies also live here: White Admiral (Limenitis camilla), Fritillary (Melitaea didyma) and Erebia ligea. Forest birds are nesting in the reserve a lot. The investigation from the year 2010 showed that Black Stork (Cicoria nigra), stock dove (Columba oenas), woodpecker (Picus viridis), and spotted (Dendrocopos minor) live here as well.
