Overview

Obedska Bara. 28/03/77; Vojvodina; 17,501 ha; 44°44'N 020°00'E. Nature Reserve. A seasonally inundated area of the Sava River floodplain, with marshes, ponds, wet meadows, and an oxbow lake. Vegetation includes reedbeds and Salix-Populus and Quercus woodland. The area is important for various species of breeding waterbirds. River regulation has adversely affected fish stocks at the site. The lake is subject to rapid siltation and nutrient-enrichment, resulting in the expansion of reedbeds and Salix scrub, to the exclusion of open water areas. Ramsar site no. 136.
