(ENG) PRILIPE...
...is a village near backwaters of river Sava. These particular backwaters are special, since they have constant inflow from thermal water sources. This is the reason water temperature never drops under 15 degrees centigrade.
Some years ago people dropped tropical plant Pistia (Pistia stratiotes) into these waters. Pistia, which is a popular aquatic plant for garden ponds, started to grow vigorously in the warm water and now completely covers backwaters almost year around. With it's rapid growth and reproduction, pistia completely changed habitat of the backwater and is therefore classified as invasive alien species.
There are many tropical animals in these backwaters too! One can find tropical fish (Pseudorasbora parva, Oreochromis miloticus), red-eared turtle (Pseudoemys scripta elegans) and even Australian cancer red claw crayfish (Cherax quadricarinatus). Those have been released by imprudent aquarists. Backwaters Prilipe is therefore a vivid example of completely changed habitats because of unwise human actions.

YOU CAN SEE "PISTIA FIELD" THROUGH BUSHES FROM THE CACHE SITE - AT THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD. If you had time, you could walk beside backwater and see more.


(SI) PRILIPE...
...so naselje ob mrtvem rokavu (mrtvici) reke Save. Ta mrtvica je nekaj posebnega, saj vanjo priteka voda iz toplih izvirov, zato voda tudi nikoli nima manj kot 15 stopinj celzija.
Pred leti so ljudje v vodo odvrgli nekaj rastlin tropske vodne solate (Pistia stratiotes), ki je v nase trgovine prisla kot rastlina za vrtne ribnike. V topli vodi mrtvice se je vodna solata bujno razrasla, tako da vecji del leta povsem prekrije vodno gladino. Rastlina je s svojo bujno rastjo in razmnozevanjem povsem spremenila zivljenski prostor v mrtvici, zato jo uvrscamo med invazivne tujerodne vrste.
Poleg vodne solate, lahko v mrtvici najdemo tudi stevilne vrste tropskih rib, zelve in celo tujerodne rake (riba psevdorazbora - Pseudorasbora parva, nilski ostriz - Oreochromis miloticus, zelva rdecevratka, avstralski rak rdeceskarjevec - Cherax quadricarinatus), ki so jih tja izpustili nespametni akvaristi. Mrtvica je zato izjemen primer zivljenskega prostora, ki je popolnoma sprememnjen zaradi nepremisljenih posegov cloveka.

"POLJE" INVAZIVNE VODNE SOLATE LAHKO MED GRMOVJEM VIDITE PRAV Z ROBA CESTE NASPROTI ZAKLADA. Ce imate cas pa si med sprehodom ob mrtvici oglejte se kaj vec.
