Duna I / The Dune I




Malinky kousek nefalsovane pouste se nachazi na vychodnim okraji lesniho komplexu Kluk, 1,5 km severozapadne od obce Osecek. Nad rovinou tvorenou sterkopiskovou terasou Labe se ulozily vate pisky, ktere vznikly pravdepodobne ve wurmu vyvatim nejjemnejsich castic sterkopiskovych naplavu. Na miste pisecneho presypu se nevytvoril pudni profil, pouze mistne je povrch pisku prekryt tenkou vrstvou suroveho humusu, ktery dava vznik surovym pudam (protorankerum).
Na miste se nachazeji typicka neuzavrena bylinna spolecenstva s charakteristickymi bylinami palickovcem sedavym, kostravou ovci a kolencem Morisonovym, ktere jsou zde hojne zastoupeny. Misty pokryvaji povrch pisecneho presypu pouze mechorosty a lisejniky. Cast CHU je porostla naletem drevin, predevsim borovici lesni a brizou belokorou. V severovychodni casti je zbytek acidofilni doubravy. Uzemi je vyznacne hojnym vyskytem hub, na presypu a blizkem okoli bylo zjisteno vice nez 80 druhu, ze vzacnych napr. hrib cizopasny, hrib siny, holubinka ametystova. Vedle beznejsich piskomilnych druhu hmyzu se tu vyskytuje napr. mravkolev Grocus bore, chroust madalovy a sviznik lesni.
Budoucnost duny je nejista - v dusledku stabilizace pisecneho presypu dochazi k jeho zarustani brizou a borovici a cast uzemi je poskozena prilezitostnou tezbou pisku. Je treba pravidelne odstranovat nalet drevin, a zabranit tak sukcesi k lesu.

Upozorneni:
Krome geokeseru toto misto v letnich mesicich navstevuji i komari, a to bohuzel v mnozstvi podstatne vetsim nez malem!

The small piece of genuine desert is located at the eastern edge of the forest Kluk, 1.5 km northwest from the Osecek village. It has been drifted from gravel sand sediment deposits in wurm. The future of this place is quite uncertain - the dune is becoming overgrown by a birch vegetation and fading away.

Warning:
There are lots of mosquitos visiting the Dune, especially in summer!
